Item details

Barksdale Ferry Road was once a pathway for merchants and their horse-drawn wagons on their way from South Carolina into Georgia, which are divided by the Savannah River at the state line. Although most of this road has become either paved, completely removed or replaced with modern development, there remains a two mile section that has been allowed to age gracefully and undisturbed. My occasional walks along this road are peaceful and relaxing. As this dirt road meanders down the hill, it is crossed by drainage from Long Cane Creek, making it impassible during and after heavy rains. I imagine that when the road was originally cut, there were young pines and oaks but now most of these trees are well over a hundred feet tall. Hidden among these massive giants… colorful mosses, ferns, and lichens are everywhere and dogwoods grow freely with leaves as prominent as their springtime blooms. Through the foliage, glimmering light from the sun peeks through, spreading warmth, life, and inspiration for this design.

Barksdale Ferry Road© is a circularly knit lace pattern, radiating outward and develops into a square. Suitable as a shawl, blanket or table covering, the pattern is size adjustable and is finished with a combination picot and stretch bind off. Knowledge of lace increases, decreases and the use of DPNs is helpful. The pattern consists of both written instructions and charts.
