Originally worked as an MKAL early 2018, inspired by the Doctor Who episode of the same name, there’s with the wonderful spaceship run by Clock work men, one of my favorite episodes. Set in Paris, during the height of the Aristocracy, there’s a great deal of abundance. We see lavish jewels, the gardens of Versailles and both mens wear and dresses are full of satin and lace. Sets and costumes are all excess and well made, even the Clock work men have those lovely glass faces which take the edge off of their masks. With all of that to reach for we had to have superb yarn, crystals found in the chandeliers and the twinkling shine of the mirrors for this shawl. Yup had to come up to some lofty heights to carry this off, it’s smashing your going to love it.
