Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest peak on the African continent. It has three dormant volcanic cones: Kibo, Mawenzi, and shira. Located in tanzania, it has the distinction of being the highest freestanding mountain in the world. Kibo is the highest of the peaks, at 19,341 feet (5,895 m) above sea level. the first documented ascent was in 1889. this project uses typical lace techniques along with beads and nupps. the patterning is evocative of both flora and fauna, with leaves, feathers, berries, flowers, and spiderwebs. this project is for the adventurous lace knitter.
