Spring is the time of renewal, blooming, new beginnings, birth and fertility and a renewed sense of energy in general. It is the promise of Mother Nature that everything can begin again. These sweet vibrations of spring are celebrated in many cultures.

Holi is celebrated in India with much zest and vigor. One of the traditions of Holi is to consume ‘Bhang’ which is a mildly intoxicating and anxiety-relieving drink to get into a festive mood. ‘Nasha’ is a Hindi word that is used to describe the state of intoxication and excitement in general and is very apt to describe the mood of Holi.

NASHA is a one-skein shawl that begins at one tip and is increased on both edges with a center spine up to the desired depth. Then the fabric is continued in bias while maintaining the center spine, resulting in a stylish wearable. The body of the shawl is a mix of garter, mesh, and sweeps of simple flower lace just about right for some spring time Nasha. :)
