Silent Auction Item
We don't actually promise that this shawl is physically bigger on the inside, though there's probably room for you and a stuffed animal friend, if you want to cuddle up a bit. We do promise that it's absolutely gorgeous on the inside and and on the outside, though. Crafter Dawn Friesen saw this shawl pattern published on knitty.com and says she had to make it, and we're glad she did! She had some beautiful blue yarn and a slight obsession with lace crescent shawls so it seemed like a good idea at the time. Still seems like a good idea, actually. Hooray!
Dawn Friesen (known to some as Chemistring) says she has always been somewhat crafty and started out with the usual embroidery and cross-stitching kits when she was quite young. She taught herself to knit in the early 2000s while trying to avoid writing her doctoral thesis, and picked up crochet while unemployed in 2009. She loves learning new skills and tend to pick projects less for the actual finished object and more to answer the question "I wonder if I can do X?" (the answer is usually yes!). She's glad to have the opportunity to challenge herself creatively and share the crafty results with fellow Desert Bus for Hope viewers.
The shawl measures 52 inches across its top edge, and 13 inches deep from top edge to center point (132 wide x 33 cm deep) after blocking. Materials: Cascade Heritage Paints yarn - 75% merino wool, 25% nylon. Care instructions included in package.
