Every time Carolyn walks in the shop she’s carrying a stunningly beautiful knitted work of art. This week was no exception. Her latest creation is this shawl, Quite Continental, by Boo Knits. The shawls by Boo Knits are known for their unique increases along the top of the shawl, subtle beading, and the lack of a center spine. Because of the lack of spine, the lace follows a continuous pattern along the shawl without breaking in the center. This shawl also features a lovely picot bind off, which really adds an elegant effect.
Carolyn chose to knit her Quite Continental shawl out of Heritage Silk by Cascade Yarns. Similar to Cascade’s original Heritage sock yarn, Heritage Silk is a luxurious blend of superwash merino wool and mulberry silk that you’ll love working with and wearing! And for a little over $15.00, you get a generous 437 yards. At the moment, we have seven beautiful colors in Heritage Silk with the promise of many more coming in our August shipment. So hurry in and begin your Quite Continental today! -Michael
