Short Description: The local diner makes the best limeades in town. With plenty of fresh limes, the refreshing fizz of club soda, and practically every fruit flavor you could want to add, it's topped off with a scoop of lime sherbet, making it difficult to resist buying anything but the largest size. Here, meandering yarn over "bubbles" make their way accross the body of a triangular shawl, accompanied by the texture of Estonian Button Stitches. The center panel ripples with the pattern in a most interesting way, and the whole piece gets finished off with one of two bold lace edgings. Written specifically for handspun yarn, this shawl is offered in two sizes and would be just as gorgeous in any commercially spun fingering weight yarn. Just check the gauge on your swatch to make sure your substitution fits the bill!
