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!

Feather Dance Shawl by Amy Loberg
This crescent shaped shawl has four meticulously designed lace motifs that flow gracefully from one to the next ... an enjoyable knit for the more experienced lace knitter. Instructions are provided in both written and chart form with additional notes for a few lines of the chart. The shawl is finished with a crochet bind off for a neat edge. The luxurious wool/silk blend and gorgeous hand dyed colors of Silkdance yarn lend themselves perfectly to this show-stopping shawl!

Celebrating 25 Years of Mountain Color Yarns ...
Revisit a favorite project or discover a design you missed!
For the last 25 years, the creative team at Mountain Colors Yarn has brought us beautiful fiber in colors inspired by the Rocky Mountain West! Diana and Leslie each have a unique color sense. By combining their individual aesthetics they are continually introducing amazing new colorways that sparks creativity in both knitters and crocheters.
We are proud to have supported Mountain Colors in our LYS since we opened in Galena, Illinois in May of 2004. Watching them add to their color and yarn lines has been a continual source of inspiration for many of Amy's designs.
Creating new colors are another way we've enjoyed working with Mountain Colors over the years. To date we offer 15 FiberWild custom colors in 10 yarns, most of which have patterns Amy specifically designed to show off their gorgeous hues! Below is a sampling of Amy's "best of" designs worked in Mountain Colors yarns. We hope you will revisit a favorite project or discover a design or color you missed!
Happy 25th Anniversary
to Diane, Leslie and the entire team at
Mountain Colors Yarn!
