Gilded Flicker Shawl!

IMG_2936

I’m so excited to be sharing my newest design with you today–Gilded Flicker Shawl!  It’s the perfect piece to reach for when you need a little bit of extra warmth on a chilly day.  It’s a cozy, garter stitch crescent shawl knit sideways from end to end. The lace motif is reversible, and the shawl is a joy to knit and to give!  Christmas is coming–what a fun piece this would be to make for someone special on your knit-worthy list!  Choose a cheery fingering weight yarn to brighten up the dreariest day!

A dear poet-friend of mine has written a poem that I think matches up beautifully with this shawl.  It’s called PEACE.

The frigid winds of winter
Have seeped inside
This ancient house
Of memories
And forget-me-nots.

I make my way patiently
Throughout its rooms,
Soothing candlelight
Following in my wake.
Our clouds of breath are no more.

Your cold hands are busy
Giving life to a hearth
Filled with soft fire
Meant to heat us to the core,
A warmth of love and hope.

The house breathes new life
As you place the fine wool
Across my shoulders.
We settle in, as peace settles amongst us;
Our future knows no bounds.

I hope you love this shawl, and Samara’s work, as much as I do!  You can see more of her poetry on Instragram–find her as samara.writes.  And I’d love it if you’d stop by Ravelry to check out all the details about Gilded Flicker!

I’m thinking that when I get the sample back (and it’s finally cold in Texas) I should schedule a re-shoot with my lovely model!  She can totally rock a cozy flannel and some shearling slippers, snuggled up in an overstuffed chair by a blazing fire with this bright and cheery Gilded Flicker shawl wrapped around her!  I’ll be sure to share updated pics!

Linking up with Ginny for Yarn Along today!
