From Susan:
The Hayward Shawl was created and knitted during a fantastic week in August that my family spent in Hayward, a sleepy little tourist town deep in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

The shawl is a long crescent shape with stockinette stitch, garter stitch, and a couple of very simple lace patterns that reflect the ripples and tiny waves in the small crystal clear blue lake next to our log cabin.

The Clear Water colorway was chosen for the original sample because both the skies and the lakes were the deepest, clearest shades of blue - both bright and dark, exactly like the Helix yarn in front of me. I couldn’t take my eyes off either of them, the yarn or the natural surroundings.

This top-down crescent-shaped shawl is a joy to knit, being both simple and interesting at the same time. The size could easily be made smaller by leaving off one or two of the lace repeats at the bottom edge.
