Fireflies Rising Shawlette
There is a KAL for this shawl from 1 April - 30 April 2014 in the [Curious Handmade Group KAL thread]. Everyone welcome to join in.
Spring is about renewal and light. Warm sun and buzzing bees. Colourful, delicately scented blossoms everywhere.
Fireflies Rising is a crescent shaped shawlette, created by increases at the edges on both sides (no short rows). The lace pattern is really simple and gives a pretty, blossomy detail.
This spring shawlette is a quick, easy one skein accessory. It could be worn over the shoulders with a floral dress or around the neck as a scarf to ward off those sometimes chilly spring breezes.
“Now, from the thick grass, the fireflies
begin to rise:
up, then down, then up again:
lit on the ascending flight,
drifting simultaneously to the same height,
-exactly like the bubbles in champagne.”
- A Cold Spring by Elizabeth Bishop
