Kishie Shawl

Last week I was in Pasadena, CA for my last teaching event of the year. It was great fun and I enjoyed teaching quilting at an event that had much beautiful yarn in the marketplace. I shopped a little each day during my lunch break. I have been doing well at knitting my stash the last few years so didn’t feel bad in treating myself to some new yarn. One of my favorite purchases was this beautiful hand dyed lace weight silk. I’ve started the Kishie Shawl and I CAN NOT WAIT to wear it. I know it will be soft, warm, and drapey.

I also bought enough of a pretty merino silk blend to make the Katharine Hepburn Sweater that has been on my make list for more than ten years.
