A lacy poncho, knitted from the bottom up, featuring a rose lace pattern that climbs the garment to the neck.

A rare and precious rose that is as blue as the frost and prized for its scent and beauty. This blue flower can grow from a chink in a wall of ice, filling the air with sweetness in the harshest of winters.
