Book review by Pia Thadani - Stitches'N'Scraps

Spring is around the corner, and I'm completely obsessed with light, lacy shawls right now. Of course that means I was thrilled when I got the chance to review this book!

A Garden of Shawls - By Karen Whooley

A Garden of Shawls includes 12 lovely shawl patterns. Some of the designs are more solid, with lacy edgings and borders, while others feature all-over lace designs. With this selection, you're sure to find the perfect shawl for any occasion, whether you need something dressy and elegant, or something more casual and relaxed. I particularly love her use of big, bold borders on some of the shawls, like this one called Palisade.

The shawls come in a variety of shapes as well, including rectangles, triangles, and rounded shapes. One of my favorites is Solar. The points give it a distinctly "sun-like" shape, and it has a beautiful ombre effect that's sure to brighten up anyone's day!
