Have you ever tried to catch a piece of sun? Golden Ray is one moment out of many, especially designed for my gracious friend and mentor, Elena Nodel.
Golden Ray allows you create a breathtaking display for the memory to hold and keep.

With its soft shapes and lovely lines, Golden Ray is a triangular shawl worked side-to-side in beautiful Shetland Lace. The intriguing-looking reversible stitch is straightforward, placed on a delightful garter background.
A splendid beaded variation is included in the pattern.

July 15th would have been Elena’s 43rd birthday and this ebook of exciting brand new designs was supposed to be our birthday surprise for her!
