The Royal Babe and our Shawl

New Zealand's official gift to the Royal couple is a hand-spun, hand-knitted fine lace shawl, similar to the one that New Zealand gave when Prince William was born.  The intricate shawl has been designed by Margaret Stove, who was also responsible for Prince William's shawl all those years ago.  Cynthia Read hand spun the merino wool and knitted the shawl in a lacy fern design.  Didn’t she do a wonderful job!
