This scarf is a compilation of fond memories from my first trip to England. I remember discovering delicious teahouses and being mesmerized by the lace collection at the Victoria & Albert Museum. I have chosen a favourite lace pattern, English Mesh Lace and have paired it with two very aptly named colours from Madelinetosh, Earl Grey and Well Water. I am venturing to England again and I hope this piece will also reflect my summer to come. This delicate and lightweight scarf is an ideal accessory for layering with summer outfits. It is a perfect portable knit to take on an oceanside adventure accompanied by that perfect cup of tea.
