Viola Ad

I originally designed this shawl for Wool Wonka Fiber's Shakespeare in Lace club. Worked in decadently soft Euphrosyne Lace, Viola is light and drapey. Ann sent three gorgeous shades of  blue for me to work with to create Viola. They blend from light, "Sororia" at the top of the shawl, to "Heartsease" then on to the deepest, Larkspur for the border.

The body of the shawl is worked in one piece from the center of the top edge, outward moving gracefully from one pattern to the next. The lace edging is knit on at the end.

Sent to club members in December, Viola is now available to everyone.

Stunning, as usual. :)

Another winner! I love how delicate it looks. You used the 3 colors beautifully.

That shawl is a work of art! Truly, another gorgeous creation, Kirsten!

this is beautiful, K! I didn't notice the color changes at first, but it's so pretty and subtle. congratulations!

Oh so pretty! You never know if you are going to be happy with a club kit, but this one is a beauty!! I really like that you are making the pattern available for the rest of us.

Absolutely gorgeous! :)

I love this so much. Everything about it is so delectable. The color palate is divine! I was wondering as I read through your text: "Is that one color or three or four perfectly coordinated shades?" I'm happy to see such a lovely finishing edgework around this--it's finished with such delicate ease. So pretty!

A real stunner! I can't believe how well the colors transition to one another.

Woo, pretty!

It's beautiful!

Oh, WoW! That is about the most beautiful shade of blue I've ever seen! The shawl is just gorgeous, and the daughter is lovely, as always!

I just love your work. The colors in this are so yummy. I always drool over your gorgeous creations.
