years ago, a hand-painted pasta bowl seized my attention in a shop window. the simple chevron pattern that circled the rim was, for me, riveting in its stark simplicity. so much so that somehow, before i could regain my senses, my weekly grocery money was in the hands of the shop owner. she explained that the pattern was named trevi and its use dated back to the etruscan age at least, popular in ceramic and tile work since that time.
the day i saw this stitch pattern in a book, i experienced a similar reaction—i just had to work with it. when the right yarn came into my hands, i knew just what do—marry them.
the nickel and copper shawl pins shown on this page were created by my friend romi; you can see many more lovely examples in her online shop. pieces from her elements collection are particularly perfect for this shawl, because they are so lightweight.
lis and jodi at one planet yarn and fiber provided the gorgeous sea silk yarn for this shawl
rachel squeezed in the proofreading of the pattern on her long journey home this week—many thanks rachel!
karolyn sped though her test knit at the speed of light—i really hope i get to meet her when i go west this summer!
and much love to david who understands so well how we want to see.
