There are many beautiful spots on our farm in Oklahoma, and while we’ve built a house here, there is evidence that we were not the first to do so. We’re aware of a couple of spots on the acreage where small houses once stood, though nothing remains but negative space among the trees.
One such location stands on a rise between the creek and a shallow canyon. I like to imagine that the trees here, though now mature, were once planted by the homesteaders, arranging for shade from the harsh summer sun and a break from the cold north wind of winter.
The Secluded Copse Shawl incorporates leaf and thicket motifs as well as several paths.
I hope wrapping yourself in your finished Secluded Copse Shawl will give you the same satisfied and happy feeling as the homesteaders of yesteryear.
