Short Description: Imagine going out for a quaint stroll through the woods: the trees are lush and full with richly colored leaves, the air is fresh and cool, and you can hear a babbling brook not too far off. The sunlight filters through the tree-tops, dancing across your face, but an unexpected gust of wind blows through, sending goosebumps across your skin.
Thankfully you brought along your most recent finished object, a light yet warm and cozy crescent shawl, the Mizu shawlette. A simple one-skein wonder project, but not without sophistication and grace. The body of the shawlette is worked up in sections of stockinette, divided by a fine line of slip stitches, for textural and visual interest. And to finish the design, a delicate and airy lace pattern, resembling water drops dripping off of leaves after a summer storm. You wrap it around you and continue on your way…
