Six Shawls

Heartfelt Shawl

This is Heartfelt, my newest shawl pattern, this shawl was designed purposely to use one of those ‘special’ skeins of yarn, you know the one, that super pretty/expensive yarn you bought and have been saving for something special.

Meandering

I haven’t blogged much recently but I have been busy and have just finished another shawl!  This one is inspired by greek tile patterns and because of this I’ve named it Meandros, a meander or meandros is a decorative border constructed from a continuous line (so wikipedia tells me) and this is what I’ve included[…]
