In the spring I love watching the colorful birds effortlessly soar through the sky. Their energy and enthusiasm for the changing seasons inspired this rhombus shawl. Areas of bright ochre balance out the cool purple and gray, mirroring the wonderful transition of colors from winter into spring, while the lightness of flight is captured in the texture and airiness of mohair.
