This project was a communal effort in the best possible way. Renate, my assistant of 19 years, is a spinner and a knitter. She purchased roving in a color that she thought my daughter, Jenny Adele, would love. When she was finished spinning, she asked me if I had a birthday gift in mind for Adele and if not, would I like to knit her something with the yarn she just completed. The answer was yes, and here is the result–two gifts in one for Adele’s birthday in May 2013.
Pattern: Bakersfield Shawlette by Corrina Ferguson
