A stunning concoction from Ilga Leja -- this is part of her Opera Season II.
Here is how she describes this beauty:
"Waiting for her young lover Roméo, Juliette stands at her window. She is wearing a double-layered capelet to cover her shoulders against the cool of the evening.
"Evoking the romanticism of Gounod’s opera, Roméo et Juliette, this piece combines both lace and textured stitches. Each layer is worked from the bottom up, with regular decreases that shape the bell-like fluted edging.
"It is long enough to be worn as a capelet around the shoulders or wrapped twice, as a scarf, around the neck."
