Ain’t no use in cryin’ on your frozen, fallow fields
Your tears will come to nothin’ and your wounds will never heal
Come to my green valley where the rains from heaven fall
And sun pours like honey from the cup that feeds us all
And you won’t walk alone, anymore.
Bache Alone by Susannah Clifford Blachly
This shawl is actually inspired by Shakespeare’s 33rd Sonnet
Full many a glorious morning have I seen
Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy…
Although clearly I’ve rooted it in Vermont’s scenery and set it to Vermont’s music.
The shawl pattern and yarn are currently winging their ways toward the members of the 2012 Shakespeare in Lace club. It will be released to the public September 1st. Leave me a comment if you’d like me to send you a note when the PDF is released.
