I have been working on this design for a while, picking out stitch patterns for the different bands I had in mind, but hadn’t put them together. Before I tried this with good yarn, I wanted to do one quick… Continue reading Shawl Design v1 is Done!
A recent visit to our fabulous local used bookstore (Title Wave) netted me a copy of a book I have been wondering about but had never looked at. This is Knitting Nature by Norah Gaughan.
