What a treat to have the opportunity to review Karen Whooley’s new self-published book, A Garden of Shawls. This collection of 12 gorgeous lacy designs offers an array of shapes including triangle, rectangle, half-circle, and a variety of crescent shapes.In addition to stunning designs, the patterns include crystal-clear written instructions as well as symbol diagrams. Karen has thought of everything by including not only several beauty shots of each design but helpful close-up photos of the stitching details, as well. Congratulations, Karen, on a beautiful book! -Susan White Sullivan, President, SWS Consulting, Inc.
