The Ticket

Pure, unadulterated, neon-tinted pleasure. That’s what this shawl gave me, soup to nuts. From deciding to put these two colors together to the rhythm of the Tweedy Sections to the leafy lace sections to the brick-y border, I smiled my way through this piece, and once it was done, found myself sighing and saying, “That’s the ticket…”
