Silk Road

Through deserts dry and mountains high
past snow and ice and deep blue skies.
From lands of sunrise way afar
We make our way to reach Kashgar
From far we come and far we walk
from dawn each day till it gets dark.

Dark loom the mountains, drawing near
through foothills steep, valleys appear
and glaciers glint in fading light
snow capped peaks come into sight.

Meine lieben Strickerinnen, die Anleitungen in diesem Shawl club sind zwar nur auf englisch erhältlich, ich kann aber gerne auch auf Deutsch in den Foren helfen, wenn man’s braucht.
Geheim tip: lieber den Shawl club durch die Webseite bestellen (dauert zwar zwischen ein paar Stunden bis zu ein paar Tagen, je nach Internet bei mir) aber man kann da den Club zum Normalpreis und ohne Mehrwert verteuerung, beziehen.
