If you like floating, dancing, ephemerally gorgeous lace, then this is the designer for you.

Boo Knits has a fabulous collection of such garments, and I'll briefly point out a few of them for you today.

First is the pictured Cloud Illusions. It was difficult to choose which pattern I'd feature in the photograph, but this one was the winner because of it's quintessential lace edge points and stylish thrown-over-the-shoulder look. I think it's pretty important that your time-comsuming labour of love lace shawl look good scrunched up around your neck; not just when you've got it spread across your shoulders, wing-style.

Ictis is another example of prettiness in both stretched out and scrunched up forms. In particular, the optional addition of bead details on this piece makes for a wonderfully elegant accessory.

Dragonfly Wings, a fantastically free pattern, looks really cool wrapped around your shoulders and pinned in place. It's another example of that great wide scarf/shawl shape that I love so much. The layers of wrap with it's overlapping points create an apparently seamless rhythm, drawing attention to your face and making you and your outfit look amazing!

I definitely see a dragonfly wings in my future. Such a gorgeous pattern. I really appreciate all of the work you put into bringing these designers to our attention. I would have missed out on this one otherwise.
