Figs & Lace

                                            
I fell completely in love with this shawl called Vintage Bouquet designed by Dani Sunshine. Everything about stripes combined with lace makes me happy.  So I've started my version in Madeline Tosh Merino Light in "Fig" and "Antique Lace".  When I wear it around my shoulders this winter it will remind me of today - the day I plucked the last juicy fig from my fig tree.






And said "good-by" to Summer on the first day of Autumn.

    1. Thanks Karen! I use special "aids" to help me keep track of everything - the fingers only do what the brain tells them and I have very little "band width" anymore...lol

  4. Gorgeous piece! Wonderful aesthetic ... dark elements, creamy and so reminiscent of that lovely, lush fig. Will be dynamite this winter with about a bazillion things. Deeply cool!
