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!

The pattern is from “Lace 2“, Volume 5 of Stephannie’s fabulous eBook series called The Wild West. Check out the drawing for a giveaway of The Wild West collection!
