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!
