Month: July 2010

When I completed the Frozen Leaves shawl, I mentioned to a friend that I was planning to give it away – perhaps to a bride. She told me another friend was looking for a shawl or stole to wear as mother of the bride and it would be lovely for her. I opined that white was not an option for anyone but the bride… but that I would love to knit something custom made for Mum.

Thus was born the Teardrop Stole aka I Always Cry at Weddings.

I fell for this one – hook, line and sinker, just as soon as I ever laid eyes on it. It even seduced me to the point that I sent away for specially selected yarn, rather than dipping into the stash and making do. Amalia is a flamboyent piece and definitely needed a bold splash of colour.
