My first knitting teacher said that when you buy yarn you are buying many hours of knitting pleasure. That exactly sums up my feelings.
I purchased this beautiful shawl as a kit from Ysolda Teague. So the yarn choices were made for me. The yarn was a pleasure to work with and the colors are very appealing.
And this shawl was designed by Nadia Crétin-Léchenne of NCL Knits. I used some yarn I had on hand. Fun and quick to knit!
