There are three sections in Sivia
Harding's sideways-worked beaded shawlette
Sister Joan: the
lace edging, the center that widens and then narrows, and a clever tubular
edge on top. Beads are placed with the crochet hook method. This design is
another in the new series of crescent shaped silhouettes. I find this shape
incredibly graceful to wear, something between a shawl and a wrap.
Sister Joan is dedicated to Harding's
good friend Joan Deneen, late of Janesville, WI. Knitting friends are the
best friends, and Joan was the best knitting friend anyone could wish for.
She is sorely missed.
