About: Imagine going out for a quaint stroll through the woods: the trees are lush and full with richly colored leaves, the air is fresh and cool, and you can hear a babbling brook not too far off. The sunlight filters through the tree-tops, dancing across your face, but an unexpected gust of wind blows through, sending goosebumps across your skin.

Thankfully you brought along your most recent finished object, a light yet warm and cozy crescent shawl, the Mizu shawlette. A simple one-skein wonder project, but not without sophistication and grace. The body of the shawlette is worked up in sections of stockinette, divided by a fine line of slip stitches, for textural and visual interest. And to finish the design, a delicate and airy lace pattern, resembling water drops dripping off of leaves after a summer storm.

You wrap it around you and continue on your way…

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.”

- Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage, 1818
