Need an extra ball? ... you will need some yarn to swatch ... maybe you are just a “tight” knitter? Running out of yarn can be a real pain.  Getting more yarn, in your color, with the same dyelot can be impossible! Purchase an “insurance” ball. We're glad to accept returns on full, unused balls of yarn!

Feather Dance Shawl in Mountain Colors’ Silkdance

Care to Dance?  Knit the "Feather Dance Shawl" ...
Featuring Mountain Colors' NEW Silkdance!

Amy pulled out all the stops when the ladies at Mountain Colors asked her to come up with a design to celebrate their 25th Anniversary. On top of that, they asked her to knit it in their brand new and totally luscious fingering weight Silkdance yarn. Seriously, wait until you see the sheen on this new yarn ... drool!

The beautiful Feather Dance Shawl takes inspiration from a doily Amy's grandmother designed back in 1942. She transformed the petal designs of the original pattern into large, beautiful feather motifs. This elegant shawl is perfect for a evening out or the theater and is exquisite enough for a bride to wear!

Be the first to knit with this new yarn!
Pre-order Silkdance ... it arrives in May and will be on your needles a few days later.
