The challenge was to create a curved shawl knit sideways so it could incorporate the lovely lace motif I had encountered when I made the Amaranth Headband. The shawl uses 1 full skein for the main color, and less than half of the lace color. This shawl is knit sideways from one point increasing toward the widest part at center, and then decreasing again toward the opposite point. This is a weight-based pattern in order to get the most out of the main color skein of yarn.

My grandmothers were the reason I love hand-work and crafts so much. As soon as I was able to manage a needle and thread, they gave me craft-related responsibilities abound. My earliest crafting photo is me at 5 years old sitting atop a table making a foam cake base in deep concentration, craft glue in one hand and crepe paper in the other.
Currently, I'm an illustrator and graphic designer working freelance out of Munich and sometimes Miami. I also try my hand out in knitwear design and typography.
