Yarn Along

Hello, this week I am reading one of my favorite cookbooks,  Whitewater Cooks at Home by Shelley Adams. This book like the first one has so many fantastic recipes but I absolutely cannot wait to make the River Wraps this summer. I am knitting a shawl called Mistaken Shawl by Kourtney Robinson. I am using a worsted weight yarn instead of the bulky weight yarn called for in the pattern. My shawl will be a fair bit smaller. Many thanks to Ginny of Small Things for hosting this weekly Yarn Along. Happy Knitting & crocheting!

Hi Gen, That cookbook looks familiar! I'm in Kaslo :o) Love the colour mix in your yarn~ and hope to see a pic of your finished shawl when it's done.
Nice to find you here!!

I love to read cookbooks too, I'll have to look for yours, wraps are so delicious.

Your shawl is going to be pretty, I like that pattern. I love to knit (and wear) shawls. I'm making one right now too.

Package sent out this morning, thank you so much Genevieve!

Thank you all but I cannot take credit for the yarn. The yarn is from Mosaic Moon.
