This spring is going to be full of lovely trunkshows! First up at the end of March is KnitBot Linen, followed by Quince and Co.'s 2014 Scarf Collection in April and the Sparrow Summer Collection in mid- May. So much inspiration...so many things to knit. May I please have more hands with which to knit?
Hidden River Yarns March KAL •
Bristol Ivy's Hrim is the March KAL. This beautiful wrap is knit using a worsted weight and a lace weight...gorgeous and cozy! The construction of this shawl is very simple but interesting, neck down in three sections. The third section is continued after the other two are bound off to create an extension in dreamy lace weight stripes to toss over your shoulder. Hrim features Shibui Silk Cloud as the lace weight stripes, adding beautiful halo and shine to the shawl. I think it pairs beautifully with Shepherd's Wool Worsted from Stonehedge Fiber Mill, and there are some stunning choices! Pattern is available at the store. Why not stop by at Knit Night, pick out your combo, and cast on?
