Shawl Design in Plain English: pattern preview

My upcoming book on how to design lace shawls (or how to design shawls in general) is in the final phase now. We are waiting for one more sample shawl to arrive here, then the professional photo shooting will take place. Depending on the weather forecast the shoot will take place this coming Thursday, March 22nd or Friday, March 23rd, 2012.

There will be nine patterns included in the book:

Alpine Fuchsia, a rectangular shawl worked from hem to hem
