In the Spring a fuller crimson comes upon the robin’s breast;
In the Spring the wanton lapwing gets himself another crest;
In the Spring a livelier iris changes on the burnish’d dove;
In the Spring a young man’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.
This romantic lace shawl is perfect for turning young men’s fancies to thoughts of love. The bold lace pattern shines in hand painted and gradient yarns. A flirty ruffled edging graces the shoulders. It looks great worn as a scarf.
