I asked my lovely friend Alitzah if she could dream up a simple but stylish summer neckerchief that would work well with my special Alpaca/linen and silk blend yarn and she has totally aced it with this gorgeous shawlette with its beautiful lace motif inspired by the emblem of the Land Girls during World War II.
Land Girl really is a thing of beauty - both in the fabulous design and the yarn - which is deliciously cool when the weather is warm but comforting when it turns chilly - I believe this is due to the linen and silk components. I have named this batch of yarn Gertrude after Lady Gertrude Denman, founder of the Land Girls. It is a buttery sunshine yellow and thinking of how busily the Land Girls worked brought to mind the busyness of bees so these stitch markers seemed perfect!
