"Sonreí (pronounced sohn-rray) means I smiled in my mother tongue, Spanish. Throughout the year I often steal away to northern New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo Mountains for fresh air and forest tranquility. As I step through the trees I memorialize my grand and great grandparents who lived and worked around and upon these mountains. Sonreí consists of motifs that echo the branches above and on the forest floor, the river stones that dance below the babbling surface of the waters, and the paths traveled in love and labor by my ancestors. Most lovingly, Sonreí is named for those profound moments when I find myself breathing with nature, in peace, and I smile...
Sonreí is a modular shawl. The main body (knit in MC) is constructed in a very traditional triangle construction, then the additional elements are added along one edge using various applied techniques. You will learn a few knew construction tid bits with Sonrei, amidst plenty of relaxing sections as well.
The Original design is shown in Numa (MC) and Seduce (CC). But for you, we knit up some beautiful smallish samples of the other color pairs that we've assembled for you. See them pictured above.
