Honeycombs and Ruffles, Hope for Peace and Strength

This is a repeat post in loving memory of Davey Warsen, Pat Feeks and all aboard the Ozzie 72, shot down in Afghanistan in August 2012.  I have repeated this post twice now and it does not get easier.

A year ago last week, a Black Hawk was shot down.  All lives were lost, for each of those men there was a family whose world stopped.  This is the shawl I made for one of their mothers.

A honeycomb shawl with ruffles on both ends.  Originally, I knit this with Berroco Remix, the photographed shawl is knit with Rowan Savannah.  I would love to knit this with Crystal Palace Cuddles, although I think any acrylic would work well.

You can buy the pattern here.

100% of the sales will go to the David Warsen Legacy fund.

Davey, you are missed and loved, so very very much.
