MONET’S POOL, A BREEZE AND MY LATEST NEWSLETTER WITH FREE PATTERN…
When I returned from Oklahoma last month, all I wanted to do was sit and knit. Since I'd picked up a virus in my travels, that's all I had energy for, as it turns out. So, I picked up my needles and the yarn I had especially dyed by Fleece Artist's Hand Maiden and sat down to knit a lily pond aka Monet. I only wanted a relaxing knit with lots of flowing stitches to show off the lovely mauves, lavendars and blues of the yarn and I wanted something that could be just shrugged on for wayward breezes. The Monet Pool shrug was born.
I havbe no lovely, lithe, model at hand so my body will have to do but at least you can see what this looks like on someone no longer 25. The kit for exactly this colorway is available in my store here featuring all silk including Tili Tomas Rock Star and this lovely Monet shade I had especially dyed.
