Touchstone Shawl • Saturday, 9/7

$36.00

Saturday, September 7th
11:00-1:00pm

Learn simple lace without counting! Sometimes you need to just wind up that recent yarn purchase and knit for the pure joy if it. To remember why you knit. The combination of a simple eyelet pattern and garter stitch in this shawl make it ideal for highly variegated yarns, but it will be equally beautiful in any solid color you love. The pattern is easily memorized, and you don’t need to count stitches. It was designed with heavier-weight yarns (DK and worsted) in mind, but could be adapted for different weights. Grab one of our lovely DK in the KnitWise Fibers or Farmers Daughter Pop-Up Shop.

Carolina Kidwell-Bozeman loves playing with fiber in all forms. There is nothing more satisfying to her than spreading the therapeutic, creative and joyous qualities inherent in knitting. Carolina has been knitting since the age of 9, and picked it back up in college where she benefited from the meditative process of knitting instead of focusing only finishing the project. In her own knitting she embraces playing with color and texture when choosing a pattern.
