Linaria Bipartita
The instant I saw the name purple toadflax, I was hopelessly smitten. How could I possibly resist a name like that? The lovely images were just a bonus at that point. I knew a plant like this demanded a bit of drama. For the socks, I found that drama in repetition. A simple, sharply-pointed petal shape tiled seamlessly across the body of the sock with just a bit of complimentary ribbing at the heel and toe looked absolutely smashing.

For the shawl, the drama comes from both the size of the project and from the design. I won’t deny it, this shawl is a big undertaking, but it’s fairly simple as shawls go. All the fancy stitchwork happens along the spine while the rest of it is soothingly simple. The end result is more than worth the work.
