Wow, the Mannings!

Just an interesting, cool pattern I had to start working on right away when I returned from my trip to Downingtown Pennsylvania to visit Steff, my dear friend and fellow yarn worshipper. We made a side trip to The Mannings studio where we absorbed all kinds of inspiration and touched all kinds of wonderful yarns. I did not escape without succumbing to the lure of some absolutely divine yarn and a pattern for a "Curlique Shawl" The interesting thing is that it is a modification of a baby blanket pattern that I would never even have looked at twice. The knitting artisit knitted half of the blanket in "mini mochi" by Noro and the shawl is spectacular. I have been working on it for the last two days and am dying to post it on Ravelry, there are a lot of postings of this baby blanket but wait till they see it as a shawl!! Hopefully, I will be able to sport it at Rhinebeck this year.
