May:  Find Your Fade!

This month we’ll be working on this enormously popular shawl pattern by Andrea Mowry!  A great way to utilize fingering weight stash, Find Your Fade calls for from 1 to 10 different colors and ends up as an asymmetrical triangular shawl.  On the first Thursday of May we will gather to look at what you have in your stash and what you find at the shop to make the perfect combination!  The shawl utilizes simple lace and garter stitch sections with increases and decreases.
