This is a shawl by the designer Romi (Rosemary) Hill. I always find her patterns a breeze to follow. It was knit using 8/2 variegated Tencel along with a single strand of cream colored rayon. It has 6/0 seed beads that follow the line of increases and also surrounding the larger three triangles at the bottom.
This shawl was given to a friend of mine, Vonnie, who was a foster mother of four children aged 14-5. She and her husband were planning to adopt all four children; however, the week before Christmas she and her husband were told (among a couple of other things) that a "more culturally relevant" family (my friend is Caucasian and the children were Hispanic) was found to adopt the children so after over six months with them they were taken by the court (the day before Christmas) and given to a new family. Vonnie and her husband were heartbroken. So, I prayerfully knit this for her hoping it would provide comfort. (As an aside I wonder if the judge would have gotten away with using those words had the situation been reversed?) I also knit a Noro stripe scarf (Brooklyn Tweed's pattern) for her husband.
