Join Laurinda Reddig and Michele Bernstein to Crochet OR Knit the Nymphaea shawl. This asymmetrical shawl will help you learn about working with gradient yarns, changing colors, blocking, and adding beads and edgings to your knit or crocheted lace. Each year we choose a new Shawl designed by Laurinda to make for the fall shawl retreat. This year's shawl was a collaboration with knitwear designer Michele Bernstein of PDXKnitterati and Bead Biz and we are excited to team up to teach crocheters and knitters to make either version! The retreat will give you plenty of time to get your shawl started, and learn everything you need to finish your shawl.
