Florideae was inspired by a documentary on the algae forest located in the Pacific North-West. The documentary explored the treasures and incredible creatures that nestle amongst the seaweeds; this shawl is named after the flowery florideae seaweed. Beads, recalling glass fishing floats, may be applied liberally, or can be left off by simply knitting the stitch marked with a bead rather than working the bead instructions.
For the adventurous intermediate or experienced lace knitter.
Starting February 6 and continuing until February 24 - a day after closing ceremonies - I will donate 50% of each sale of any of my patterns to http://egale.ca/ , an organization that does good work on behalf of LGBTQ people. I was inspired to do this by my friend Lynne Sosnowski (etcgirl here on Rav), who has written beautifully of her beliefs. I hope Lynne’s thoughts will inspire others to support not only the athletes, but everyone who works hard to be faster, to fly higher, to be stronger, no matter what their endeavor, no matter who they are, no matter who they love.
