PATTERN DETAILS

The Call of the Sirens lace stole draws on the Greek myths about the Sirens. The Sirens' calls could bewitch sailors to make them forget who they were and and where they were going. Often the Sirens caused them to forget to navigate their ships and the ships would be wrecked against the rocky shore. The edging of the stole show the waves, followed by the rocky shoreline. The center portion of the stole represents the braided hair of the beautiful Sirens.

I'm originally from the west coast of Sweden, but have traded the rugged cliffs of Bohuslän for the Canadian wilderness. I'm is located in the rural parts of Ottawa and spend most of my summers knitting by Burridge Lake. I've always enjoyed improvising with my knitting. I began writing up my designs in 2007, and have published patterns since then - beginning with the Burridge Lake Aran Afghan and followed by the first lace shawl in the Mystic series - Mystic Waters. I love both cables and lace, and they show up in some way in most of my patterns. I've published 3 books with Cooperative Press; Mystic Shawls (2014), Ancient Egypt in Lace and Color (2012), and Shaping Shawls (2011). I've also self-published 2 e-books; Fairy Tale Lace (2013) and Seven Fingerless Mittens (2011), and my work has been included in a number of other books. Additionally I always seem to have KALs on the go - and take on new projects and challenges all the time. Knitting is about having fun for me, and I love exploring new techniques, textures and colours.
