Viriditas

Spring is an amazing time full of viriditas – the irrepressible greening, growing power of nature. The richly textured pattern on this delightful tip-to-tip shawlette reminds us of the abundance of moss and leaves and trees and all the growing things so full of life here in the Pacific Northwest in spring. Celebrate the season (and your favorite luxury sock yarn, too) by creating a piece of lovely greenery to adorn your neck.
