My long time friend Erin, just knit her granddaughter a blanket for her birthday. Here is what she had to say:
This August, I was visiting my friend Jan at her summer home in Lakeside, Montana. Her step daughter was also there- she’s a weaver- so we naturally went to the local yarn shop in nearby Kalispell: Camas Creek Cottage Yarn Shop. The yarn is from Montana too: Big Sky Yarn Co. – Squish DK, 100% Superwash merino in colors: Lillie Mae, Buttercup, and Slapstick.
The pattern is an adaptation of a shawl designed by Tracie Millar called Beach Days.
