Spring is about renewal and light. Warm sun and buzzing bees. Colourful, delicately scented blossoms everywhere.

Fireflies Rising is a crescent shaped shawlette, created by increases at the edges on both sides (no short rows). The lace pattern is really simple and gives a pretty, blossomy detail.

This spring shawlette is a quick, easy one skein accessory. It could be worn over the shoulders with a floral dress or around the neck as a scarf to ward off those sometimes chilly spring breezes.

Now, from the thick grass, the fireflies
begin to rise:
up, then down, then up again:
lit on the ascending flight,
drifting simultaneously to the same height,
–exactly like the bubbles in champagne.
