“I have an understanding with the hills
At evening when the slanted radiance fills
Their hollows, and the great winds let them be,
And they are quiet and look down at me.
Oh, then I see the patience in their eyes
Out of the centuries that made them wise.
They lend me hoarded memory and I learn
Their thoughts of granite and their whims of fern…”
- Grace Hazard Conkling, “After Sunset”

This sideways-knit garter shawl transitions between 3 colors with bands of a mosaic and stripe pattern. Big and cozy in worsted weight, it’s perfect for an outing along the Blue Ridge Parkway or your favorite spot to enjoy the outdoors.
