I think I just completed a perfect shawl for transitioning into winter, and though this one is for my sister, I might want to make one for myself. 😉 I even want to use the same color, because it's so bright and cheerful and gorgeous! Since this is a rectangular shawl, I designed it to … Continue reading Fall Shawl
Yes! I do love how this cardigan turned out. Black outfit, wavy eyelets and little buttons -- what's not to like? 😉 And I think it's awesome how the simple Old Shale pattern makes for this wavy, beautiful look.
