Every woman possess an undying strength within her. A strength that will hold her through anything and will never fail her. You just need to tap into it.

Poets long ago conceived of a flower that would not fade. Christening this flower as the amaranth-immortal and unfading. You may know of Amaranth as an herb with colorful leaves and spikes of flowers--considered by some a weed. Your inner strength may not be recognized, some may even consider it a nuisance but if tapped it will be an undying source of strength.

Embrace your inner strength as you knit the Amaranthine shawl. This shawl is a top down crescent shawl in a sport weight yarn. The open mesh crochet is framed with a lovely flower lace detailing on the border.
