Mmmmmore MKALS

What could possibly be more fun than one MKAL (Mystery Knit-a-Long)? Of course, mmmmmore MKALS! My magnificent Snow White Shawl in The Unique Sheep's Silverlode colour gradient on their brand new silk-linen Rare Breed yarn base is looking amazing with the crystal beads and leaf motifs of the shawl. This is my first time knitting with linen, and it's very reminiscent of cotton in its lack of elasticity. It might block very well, seeing how stiff linen tablecloths and shirts can be.

ABOUT

Annette Fehr ~ Lyon, France

I come from a very artsy and craftsy family from the beautiful Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Canada. Following a degree in Urban Planning & Design, I first moved to Zurich, Switzerland, before moving to the Beaujolais wine region of France where I'm constantly inspired by the natural beauty surrounding me. I took up knitting several years ago as a way to relax, reduce stress and as a child-compatible activity. I've experimented with all kinds of arts & crafts throughout my life including drawing, painting, calligraphy, architectural drawing, sculpting, jewellery-making, photography, quilting, embroidery, and crochet, and I was instantly fascinated by the infinite design possibilities, vibrant colour combinations and touchableness offered by hand-knitting. I dream of one day combining my passion for knitting with yarn possibilities appropriate for the hot climates which I love so much.
