Aspen Moguls

 

My Aspen, Colorado honeymoon in January was an adventure, especially when I took a wrong turn and unintentionally found myself in the midst of moguls. The stitch pattern of this convertible wrap echoes the twists, turns, and carved mounds I encountered that day, providing a reminder that knitting needles (not ski poles) are the only sticks that have any business being in my hands. Thankfully, there is no video footage of my awkward maneuvering off my bum and back onto my skis.

Windward Shawl

 

Columns of shifting color and a wavy lace stitch evoke thoughts of ocean breezes and lapping waves. Knit in a soft baby alpaca spun single with long, gradual color changes this asymmetric wrap is perfect for transitional weather or an overly air-conditioned office. Your favorite shawl pin adds just the right accent to this lovely piece.

Square Pools Cowl

 

Get your checkerboard on... on a slant, that is, with this bias-knit bargello cowl. The deep jewel tones of luscious sport-weight merino swim beautifully in square pools of color.
