Hebrew and Its Influence

This article highlights why I LOVED stuying Hebrew!

1) The direct translation from Hebrew into English of the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament beginning with Tyndale and then the King James Version.
2) Notions of political and religious freedom.
3) Puritan history and education in New England.

Help Finding a Shawl Pattern

Does anyone know of a pattern similar to this shawl I spied in the 1981 film "Treasures of the Snow"?

https://youtu.be/GpUu8qfjcoM

The film is available on YouTube, and it is easier to see the pattern details in the opening and closing scenes at the train station. (There are lot of knitting shots during the film, too.)

It appears to be a round shawl (Pi shawl?) but I'm not completely sure. The pattern and color changes are beautiful.

Any ideas on the pattern and wool selection would be welcome!

+Donna Druchunas?

Thank you.

"Cities are mankind’s most enduring and stable mode of social organization, outlasting all empires and nations over which they have presided. Today cities have become the world’s dominant demographic and economic clusters."
