The pattern is Vertical Drop Stitch Scarf by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas and … Continue reading Vertical Drop Stitch Scarf

I figured I'd give the Twyst Shawlette pattern a shot but use both skeins since the pattern is adjustable. I had a couple of oversized skeins so I got a … Continue reading Caracol Twyst Shawl
