I fell in love with the Eden Prairie Shawl because I've always been a fan of Frank Lloyd Wright's designs and the Prairie school, the Arts and Crafts movement, and the Mission style. I love the idea of straight, clean lines, combined with the sweeping movement Nature provides. I immediately recognized the familiar in the Eden Prairie shawl, and had to create it.
I chose a picture of a stained glass window as my inspiration, and made my color and fiber choices from there. Can you see how I'm using the slightly variegated yarn to pull out the colors of the window? I'm thinking of adding a slight "spot" of red, too, I just need to figure out how to work it in.
