Yes, sadly, in my 24/7 grad school life, my hands don’t touch both yarn and needles at the same time. So be it. But here in the mile-high Colorado Rockies, when the Summer evenings are comforted with a light shawl, I remember my "Phoenix Shawl”, a pattern I created and loved so much I wanted to make it available to you all! The pattern is easy enough to take to the beach, but still involved enough to keep the knitter engaged. We knit this in Tundra from Pagewood Farm, a unique blend of silk and camel that is light, soft and just warm enough. But hey, try it yourself. This pattern is now free and we have a great selection of Pagewood Farms Tundra. Click the link to see all our Tundra color-ways.
