Giovanna McCarthy’s Knitting

Giovanna McCarthy is a master knitter.

She stopped by the other day to bring me this beautiful shawl/scarf, which I will treasure forever.

She said the pattern is meant to embody ocean water rolling out over the beach sand at its edge.

The outer darker edge is deeper water, with a curvy wave line reflected in the work. The water color fades to a lighter blue as it grows more shallow, and, then, there is the foamy water at the edge where the wave spreads out over the sand.

This piece is a work of art from an artist! Wonderful!

Thank you Giovanna!

  3. That is very wonderful. Great that Giovanna was so creative. I love the ocean theme. Beautiful knitting and friends. One of the things I missed the most when away was all of these concepts truly worked out in this gorgeous wrap. You are both winners! Louisa it will look gorgeous on you when you wear it, It is almost a work of art that could be placed on a wall for display of it’s beautiful theme.
