This one really sings to me.

A beaded beauty by Nim TeasdaleWhere the Forest Meets the Sea is a striking shawl that just sings of glorious landscapes and breathtaking vistas. 

It can be worked entirely from the written pattern, or from charts with some notes.  The pattern rows are worked on the right side only.

And I thought this was a neat thing to point out:  Test knitter Sanita60 wrote: Easy to medium, the pattern is written clearly enough that even someone who is just starting out on their knitting journey could do it.

The Design

This is what Nim writes:

Where the Forest Meets the Sea is a classy, semi-circular lace shawl. It is inspired by my favourite place, and from peering at maps of jagged places like Norway and Scotland, and marvelling at how the mountains ripple down to the coast, and streams become rivers on their way down to the sea.

The design uses an evolving, rippling wedge construction which grows smoothly as you progress through the rows towards an oceanic edging.

The Yarn and Colorways

Nim writes that all one needs is approximately 600-700m of lace to fingering weight yarn. That translates to 656 - 766 yards.
