Bias Shawl Purple detailNotes: I came across this kit at Churchmouse Yarns & Teas in Bainbridge during my Seattle trip last winter, so I picked it up for my sister’s birthday. It was a fast project—just knit from the one hank until you run out! I also love this particular colorway. The navy, purple and burgundy work well together to create a lot of visual interest to the garment. The drape is also very beautiful. I definitely recommend it.
