avonlea shawl...


I had the good fortune to meet the delightful young designer audry nicklin last week...

audry nicklin with her book
she and her mother were passing through Mendocino on their way home to the bay area where, as any real knitter would,
she made her way to my favorite yarn shop...

 Audry is the author of LIT KNITS, a well-organized book of 
ten projects inspired by classic literature...

of course, I bought the book

this weekend I pulled out three skeins of o-wool 2-ply
in a lovely plum
and cast on the Avonlea shawl...




something comforting--a symbolic hug--for a friend who is 
experiencing great sorrow...

pardon me...
I must get back to my knitting...

  1. Very interesting! A friend of mine is going to start a knitting lit club and this book could be inspirational!
