  • Thank you for highlighting my version of the Vortex shawl which was a collaborative project with Maylin of Tri’Coterie yarns out of France, as a gift for a friend of ours who lost her home to Hurricane Irene. Maylin dyed up the yarn to match a radar picture of the hurricane and I chose and knit up the pattern until I ran out of yarn. It was one of the simplest project I’ve ever knit but filled with lots of love and positive mojo for our friend.

    • No problem at all, I’m glad that you shared your project with the rest of the world. I thought it was an extremely creative use of the yarn and I love how people can find inspiration for the most beautiful things out of some of the worst situations on earth. Best of all, when something is made with love in the heart you can always tell, and I think that really comes through in your collaboration with Maylin. Awesome job to the both of you.
