Another Yarn Fairy original this heirloom shawl took inspiration, initially from the James Bond movie Skyfall. There’s a scene in the movie in Tangiers where there’s this lovely shadow cast onto the wall by the lattice over the window. From there the design turns to elaborate Moroccan tiles for inspiration. Worked over the course of a year we should have some massive piece that may just win you blue ribbons at the local state fair.
