Susie and I used to go to a yarn shop called the Point.
The Point has since closed but the reason we went, aside from the yarn,
has since moved her expertise to Annie & Co. on Madison and 93rd.
Her name is Alyssa and if you’re ever in the neighborhood drop by and say “Hi”
On a fairly recent visit I purchase a very colorful skein of sock yarn by
Cascade called Heritage Silk Paints.
I never knew Cascade made a merino / silk blend sock yarn.
The color is very spring; orange, yellow, pinks and a dash of green.
This very simple shawl is from a recipe type book by Evelyn Clark called Knitting Lace Triangles.
I used the medallion motif for the main body and ended
with about 11 rows of the ripple lace pattern before I ran out of yarn and had to bind off.
I just got a chance to block it this past weekend.
I am very happy with how it turned out.
