Queen Anne's Lace Trunk Show

Today is the launch of our "Queen Anne's Lace" Trunk show at Serenity Knits.
Anne Corcoran is the creative genius behind Queen Anne's Lace which includes a magnificent collection of lace shawls and scarves. We have 20 of her designs displayed in our store from July 18th to July 25th, 2009.
Anne's "Poetic Shawls II - Summer's Day Shawl" (shown above) was inspired by Shakespeare's Sonnet 18 which begins: "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Thou art more lovely....."

Designs for Queen Anne's Lace also derive their inspiration from nature with designs such as "Woodland Solace Scarf and Shawl" which attempt to catch the interplay of light and leaves - so magical in a forest.

We will also be offering a selection of the yarns Anne uses for most of her designs including Zephyr (above) and hand dyed Country Silk (below) - shown with the patterns.

Also as a bonus for customers, we are holding our Summer Clearance Sale until August 1st, with discounts on selected summer yarns (see our web site for details).
