This photo is of Clara Lemlich. She was a leader of the garment workers' strike a year before the fire occurred. Had the workers' conditions been met, fewer fatalities would have occurred on the day of the fire.
Just right for taking you into fall - knit this large, lacy triangle shawl. It uses light and airy (yet very warm) Berroco Andean Mist yarn. The shawl itself has an allover lace pattern accented by a lace leaf border.
