Water Lily Lace Scarf

Designed by Jenny Stark

Visualize a pond filled with gorgeous, purple water lilies. Consider how the roots are firmly planted down in the mud at the bottom of the pond where they find stability and nourishment. Sense the cool waters, cleansing and sustaining the plant. Finally, reflect on the pristine beauty of the blossom that floats above everything – a symbol of purity, renewal, and grace. May the lovely colors of these yarns and the beauty of this lace pattern bring the same calming, lifting feelings to your mind as you create it and then wear it or share it.
