Wisteria Garden Shawl

August 11th, 2009

Wisteria Garden Shawl

Earlier this summer, I was tasked (by myself!) with designing the shawl project for the June Year of Lace. If you remember my early summer, it was kind of… well… stressful. This project, rather than making things worse, actually kept me sane.

It was great to just focus on a short-term deadline, and the yarn as it passed between my fingers and the needles. It was great to design. To plan. To chart. And then to see it become something beautiful and tangible.

Wisteria Garden Shawl

The yarn is a seasilk from Zen Yarn Garden – one of my favourite Canadian hand-dyers. It’s got a soft hand, and a lovely luster, and it made for happy knitting.

For now, the pattern is only available to current Year of Lace subscribers.
