Secret Society, a bottom up, triangular shawl, was inspired by some rocks found in The Burren, Ireland that reminded me of the Eye of Horus and the eye found on the American Great Seal. The pattern calls for either Stone Soup Fingering or Mrs. Lincoln’s Lace, although it could be knit in any of the fingering or lace weight yarn.
