Off the needles - at last!

On a visit to Oregon’s Columbia Valley on my 5th wedding anniversary, I found this beautiful handspun, handpainted yarn at Foothill Yarns in Hood River. I fell in love with the waterfalls of the area, and I decided to knit the “Multnomah” shawl after the grand waterfall of the same name. Project name: Multnomah in Plums. Pattern: Multnomah by Kate Elsa. Size 17" x 45". Needle: US 3 - 3.25 mm. Pagewood Farm Handspun Yarn. Colorway: New Horizon - Purple multi

2011 CCS Retreat contest winner! My first Fair Isle project. Pattern: Fair Isle Hat by Mary Ann Stephens. Needles: US 3 - 3.25 mm, US 5 - 3.75 mm. Yarn: Lana Grossa Cool Wool Merino Superfein in colorways 443 Heather Grey and 444 Flannel.
