Oh my ...... Anne has done it again....another stunning shawl!
Almost a year ago, Anne started telling me about a design that she had been contemplating for some time, but could not seem to find the right yarn or pattern that would compliment the design.
As we chatted about it and I saw pictures of her first samples, I started seeing colors that I thought would compliment the design. Colors with rich depth to give life to the design. Whereas Anne is always seeing the patterns in things, I see the colors, which of course makes for a fun collaboration.
Anne released her pattern today and I have opened up the shop to accept pre~orders for the kits in the 2 different colorways (seen on Anne's blog). It's always fun to work with Anne and humbling to see what she does with my yarn!
I am currently test knitting this beautiful blend of fingering weight merino and bamboo and I LOVE it. The bamboo has the shine of silk and the merino gives it just the right amount of softness and bounce.
Even though it is insanely busy here this week, I feel like a little kid who has been allowed to play in the toy store. It is such a treat to love what you do for work, isn't it?
