oh gemini, you thrive on witty communication and stimulation. the gemini moon is clever and curious, but with a gentle mischievousness that dislikes true conflict, you must practice seeing situations for how they really are rather than putting on rose-coloured glasses in hopes of avoiding the issue at hand. you are a joy to be around when allowed to relax and open yourself up to sentiment.

the gemini shawl pays homage to the twins with a balanced lace that shuffles its way along an asymmetrical triangle, ending in an elongated ribbing.
