Blue Lake Spring Shawl
Short Description: A lake hidden in the mountains. Clear blue waters amidst redwoods and pine trees. Summers of my childhood were spent here and when I returned this year I was inspired. The perfect blue colorway is highlighted in the simplicity of the garter stitch body, while the pine cones are captured in the lace edging.
