Elfriede by Very Shannon | My family spent summers when I was growing up with my Omi, Elfriede, at her cabin on a lovely tree-lined lake. The lace pattern used in the body of this sideways asymmetrical triangle shawl reminds me of those trees and the happy memories we shared there. Elfriede is named in her honour. Today my Omi suffers from advanced dementia. It has been incredibly difficult, but I have found solace in the soothing stitches of this shawl. It’s my hope that you’ll also find healing and meditation when knitting Elfriede.
