Desdemona Beaded Lace Shawl available for $6.
The story of Othello and Desdemona may be familiar, but did you know that the tragedy turned upon a lace scarf?
Othello confronted Desdemona. Othello demanded that Desdemona show him the scarf, but she (obviously) couldn’t find it. This was the proof he needed of her infidelity, and he killed her.
Here she is, portrayed by Frederic Leighton (1888).
Tragic, yes. Also, great knitting inspiration. This scarf must be soft enough, delicate enough, and beautiful enough to honor Mrs. Desdemona.
