IGTV Show #2: The One With All the Mysteries

We popped up on IGTV. We talked about our latest trunk show and some some Mystery KAL/CALs were joining in on. Click here to see the video.

We got some fabulous shawls from Manos. We’ll have them until October 20th. Drop in and give one a try. Click here to read the post about the Alma Trunk Show.

We’re also jumping in on some social needle work. Cryss joined the Fields of Clover CAL the mystery project is a shawl designed by Lilly Go. I’m doing the Starflake: Westknits Mystery Shawl KAL 2019. The KAL/CAL will each run for all of October. Jump in and join the fun.

Both of our shawls called for strong contrasting colors, but our shawls couldn't be more different.

Cryss’ Mood Board
