Don’t you just love it when you reach into your stash and find the perfect marriage of yarn and pattern? Such was my luck the other day when I found some Valkyrie “Jayne” fingering, a lovely blend of merino and cashmere hand-dyed by my friend Bonni Raine.
As luck would have it, I have a little bit of time between design projects to do some fun, personal knitting. I’m pairing the yarn with a design I’ve wanted to make for the longest time…the shawl called Ferru by my friend Stephannie Tallent. The design has special meaning for me, as I’ve spent a great deal of time in Arizona, the home of the Ferruginous hawk which inspired Stephannie’s design. Note the gorgeous feather motif!
You can find Bonni’s Valkyrie yarn at Yarns at the Adobe in San Luis Obispo, California
