On My Needles
I have found some knitting inspiration this week.
My needles are still empty, but this shawl is something I dream about making.
The Forest Grove Shawl by Mara Catherine Bryner (Orange Knits) is stunning.
I came across this design when reading Jamie’s post on Knitsophy Designs.
The center reminds me of the rings of an old tree. Beautiful!
