Winter Break KAL Kit
Begins when you want/ends February 14, 2021 NEW DATE!
Zoom help & discussion sessions
Prizes for everyone who finishes by February 14
Staff Associate Kelli Minelli has found this lovely pattern by local designer, Lindsey Fowler, to help us kick-off the New Year! (and kick out the old one!!)
A pretty triangular shawl, West Facing Wrap is worked from end to end keeping the rows short with a downhill slope to the finish. The corners and edges curve gently to hug your shoulders. For some added personality, emphasize the asymmetry with tassels placed at the end of your garland (or not, if you prefer!). Size MED shown in photos.
Share progress photos on our Ravelry thread for our Winter Break KAL. Everyone who finishes their West Facing Wrap by January 31, 2021 will receive another of Lindsey's patterns as a free gift plus a couple accessories from The Artful Yarn!
We'll also offer a couple of Zoom technique and help sessions hosted by Kelli in January. (TBD)

Here's what the artist says about her design:
One of the most peaceful times of the week for me is the late afternoon, when my kids are about to wake up from their nap and the sun comes through the west facing windows in my home. It makes all my plants glowy and happy and the old wood frame windows paint lines on the walls. Everything (even when there are toys everywhere and unwashed dishes) seems to slow down for an hour and the air feels lighter. This shawl is my ode to that moment in time.
