Product details

This pattern was originally created for the 4th shipment of A Verb for Keeping Warm’s Pro-Verbial Club 2010-11.

Although the stitch inspirations for Grand Lake come from fish scales and seashells, the end result reminded me strongly of architecture, specifically old movie theater architecture with its arches and flourishes and decorative motifs. Near Lake Merritt in Oakland, there is a 1920s movie palace called the Grand Lake. Kept open as a labor of love by its proprietors, the Grand Lake Theater is an Oakland landmark and a little piece of Americana with its beautifully cluttered mishmash of architectural styles. Wear your Grand Lake to a movie night and experience a little of the glamour of the old time movie palaces.
