88 Irtfa'a Faroese Lace Shawl

"A Faroese shawl in one size featuring an array of lace patterns evoking the magical textures and colorful highlights of the raven’s cloak," says Hanson. "Shawl is worked top-down, with shaping at the shoulders, incorporated front edging, and an applied (knitted on) lace edging at the outer border. Click below to view complete photo story." Sometimes 'breathtaking' is too weak a word. Let us all just give thanks that Hanson has found exactly what she was put on earth to do-- design exquisite pieces like this.
