lanas2

Last week i went to the yarn heaven of Araucania Yarns in Michelle Boisier Atelier

I bought a ton of yarn with beautiful colors and texture, and have a great conversation with Michelle. She is a very nice person and was very helpful to buy yarn with her.

She also make knitting clases, so visit her Facebook page for info.

And I bought some very nice and luxury fingering weigth yarn for  more shawls ( I have a shawl addiction, so always i need more)

Now I’m very busy designing, but always is the same thought in my head: Did I have enough yarn? I think no!

I made this Shawl as a birthday gift for my sister Carolina.
She lives in the south of my country in a very cold and rainy city, so she needs a big shawl.
I get inspired by the color of the vegetation of this part of my country.

Carolina Shawl is a big and beautiful shawl with beads. The beads simulates the rain drops in the plants after rain.

Hope you like it, you can make one for your sisters too!!
