As I mentioned yesterday, the 2nd Issue of Making by editor Carrie Bostick Hoge of Madder features a lovely shawl design featuring The Fibre Co. Canopy Fingering: Open Waters by Melanie Berg.
From the magazine:
The triangular shawl features a garter stitch body and large scale open lace pattern along one diagonal edge. Reminiscent of flowing water, the design is lovely in the drapey, flowing Canopy Fingering. Shown in River Dolphin, a lovely blue grey that reinforces the “waters” theme, it will be interesting to see how the patterning of the shawl changes in appearance if other colors are used. I’m intrigued by the prospect of it in a color such as Tanager or Quetzal – would the waves appear as peacock feathers in a lovely, vibrant teal?
