I have no idea who knit this or how it came to be ascribed to me, and when I started getting questions about it I had no idea what people were talking about. The links offered didn’t work. They weren’t mine.

So now that I know it’s here on my page, I’m guessing that someone took my Strawberry Pie shawl at http://spindyeknit.com/patternfiles/strawberry-pie-shawl/ and simply left the strawberry motifs out and was kind enough to name the source of their inspiration. But that’s all I know.

I will say that the shaping on the shawls in my book, “Wrapped in Comfort: Knitted Lace Shawls” were the results of my efforts to try to greatly improve the fit and hang of the top-down circular shawl idea. They’re much better designed, and as I said on my site, I nearly took the Strawberry Pie one down because of that. But enough people like it, and it delights my friends whose story about the pie went with it that it’s up there.

(Oops. Those bad links are still up. Not sure how to fix that.)
