What was your inspiration?
I have been continuing to add to the collection of my music-themed designs in the HeartStrings pattern line. Half-note Symphony picks up on the name of the yarn by Tilli Tomas used to make this shawl. Other music-themed patterns I have designed so far are -
Pianissimo Lace Blouse
Sweet Melody Vest
Symphony V Mobius
What are you most proud of?
Half-note Symphony Shawl is designed to be attractive on a range of sizes and body types. Because of the fluid, amorphous character of the purl lace, this "one size fits all" shawl can be further varied by the degree of tautness in the blocking process (from relaxed to extremely stretched).
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Purl lace is the easiest of lace stitches, so would be a good entry-level project for an aspiring lace knitter. Because of the interesting shape and techniques, there's lots to interest more advanced knitters as well.
