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.
