Valentine’s Knit a Long – Close to You Shawl
February 3, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us Sunday Feb 3 to knit “Close to You” by Justyna Lorkowska.
This free pattern on Ravelry uses just one skein of yarn. This has got to be my favorite pattern “story” ever and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day: One day, while I was planning my trip to a yarn festival, my husband asked me to get him some un-dyed yarn while there.“Hope he doesn’t destroy it”, I thought. You know… all that money could be spent at some booth with pretty skeins. I did get him the yarn in the end. And he started studying about acid dyes, temperature, and pH levels (he’s a nerd!)… and then he showed me his creations.I immediately fell in love and was slightly shocked to see that my own husband could dye yarn. Soon the flat became flooded with colorful skeins and he had created his own yarn line. (How cool is that?)“Why are you doing that?”, I asked.“To be close to you”, he replied.…and this is how this shawl was born. Designed to use just one skein of any gorgeous handpainted yarn to make a shawlette for someone who’s close to you too. – Justyna Lorkowska
