Headed back to Pemberley where we find both Lizzie and Georgiana at the piano. This stole will keep you knitting with all the glorious motif’s, texture, beads, cables, lace… and I know not what.
“All young ladies are accomplished. They sing, they draw, they dance, speak French and German, cover screens and I know not what.”
Bingley quote, about how talented the modern women are.

If you love texture, you’ll love this shawl. Full of original lace, haystacks, k1tbl on purl base, a small amount of cables that move the stitches with hard lines. Strewn across are beads, a lot of beads. As if that weren’t enough there’s a floral pointy border, built into left and right, picked up on top and bottom. In a word, ethereal. I love this shawl, it’s a work of the heart, I’m sure you’ll feel the same.
