Seashells by the Seashore Shawl
Mary Anning really did sell her seashells by the seashore. The shell -shaped textured lace and blushed pink of Miss Babs Yowza took me back to childhood moments of combing the shore for pretty pink cockleshells.
The lace is truly easy to memorize and pattern flows together, accenting the shawls crescent shape. Lovely relaxing knit for lace knitters.
