Miram's done it again! This month's kit is perfect for fall, just a little wisp of a shawl to throw around your shoulders as the weather cools down.
The design concept:
The shawl is designed in 3 parts. Each of the 4 repeated wedges of the shawl begins with a gathering of leaves, then moves downward into the twisting, odd trunks of the aspens, culminating in the feather and fan edge, which reminds me of the strata of decay on the forest floor, shot through with the communal roots of the aspens above.
The kit for this project comes with a pattern containing both charted and written instructions to knit the lace shawl shown, plus a large skein of merino/silk (Zephyr) yarn to knit the pattern in your choice of 1 of 2 colorways: the Quaking Aspen colorway (shown here in the sample), a rich blend of a grove of aspen trees in early fall, bright greens with hints of lemony yellow, or in Vermont Maples, all the vibrant reds, oranges and burgundies the state is so well known for in the fall (shown below).
All for now.....
