I found Marrowstone Island while exploring Washington State on vacation. The beach at Fort Flagler State Park is like none I have seen
on the East Coast. It is covered in smooth sea stones and timber;
picture driftwood on steroids. Stunning and breathtaking are
the effects of the ocean's tides on whole trees. The lace on
this shawl reminds me of the beach pebbles and rocks and
their simple beauty.
This one-skein project won't seem like it goes on forever
since every row gets shorter and faster! Pair the pattern
with a special hand-dyed yarn in either variegated
or solid and the yarn will shine in the stockinette
body of the shawl.
16 sts and 32 rows over 4 inches in stockinette stitch
I started knitting in college though I recall my grandmother trying to teach me crochet at a much younger age. It wasn't until many years later, at my young children's urging, that I took the needles out to teach them to knit.
And I haven't stopped since!
