“As we celebrate this monumental milestone, there is a regal feeling in the air. I wanted to design a piece that would truly embody the spirit of this occasion. For thirty years Vogue Knitting has been counted among the ‘royalty’ of knitting publications. There­fore, with pearls—the most magical, elegant and feminine of gems—I tried to create a piece that would merit being worn by a queen.” — Shirley Paden
