Spring dawns suddenly one day, and the buzzing of bees is loud enough to carry all the way in through the kitchen window. Outside, bunches of pink flowers cover the many thorn bushes. Where there was barren colorless branch throughout the winter, there are now clouds of pink. Desert peaches. Not thorn bushes, they’re desert peaches!

As light as a feather, this lacy shawl shawl is shaped as a shallow triangle, perfect for a scarf or for a light shoulder wrap for chilly spring and summer evenings. The leafy panel down the back splits a field of blossoms, and ends in picots at the edge. Great with a fabulous pair of cowboy boots.

Welcome to year three of my subscription series! The idea for my first ebook subscription (year one: the pleiades) was born in 2010 while reading posts on Ravelry: people knitting 10 shawls in 2010. I decided to design and knit 10 shawls that year, and at the time I released my first subscription, I had 7 left to do. I made my goal that year, so the next year I was back for more. Today though, I have realized that I simply love doing these subscriptions so much, I won’t even pretend that there’s any other reason to do them! The number 7 is one of my favorites, and I like including the extra accessories. So here comes year three!

I am still addicted to small shawls using sock yarn and my sock yarn stash is still growing. And growing. It seems to be bigger every day! And I must admit, I love feeding it. This year’s subscription will celebrate the beauty of my new home in northern Nevada, and Jimmy Beans Wool is celebrating with me! Stay tuned for all sorts of good fun from both of us as we take you on a tour through this gorgeous area!

The patterns for this eBook will be delivered to subscribers within a subscription period ending June 30, 2013. There is no specific delivery time for each pattern, but look for the first pattern in late August of 2012. All patterns will have charts and written instructions, and you will be able to make them out of one skein of sock yarn or an amount of sock yarn comparable to that needed for a pair of socks. Some will be two colors, and one is even three! But you won’t need more than one skein of any color. There will be a few little extras sprinkled throughout and all patterns will be available to purchase separately!

Are you ready? Happy knitting!
