White Shawl!

Here is a beautiful shawl that I have in my shop that is great for those cool evenings. This shawl can be worn for dress up nights or for casual wear too.

All white with a lacy edging, this is the perfect shawl to feel frilly and feminine!

Merry Christmas!

Wishing all my family and friends a very Merry Christmas!!! Happy New Year too!

Handmade Adult Scarf and Hat Set Dusty Rose Color

Here is a great set that would make a wonderful gift this Christmas. The scarf is a dusty rose in color and measures 68" long and 7" wide. Its made with soft worst weight yarn and feels good around your neck. The stitch is a very pretty stitch and will keep you toasty and warm all winter.
That hat fits any adult size head and has the same stitch as the scarf. Its the same dusty rose in color as the hat.
Both these items are machine washable and dryable but I would recommend hand washing and drying flat so it retains its shape.

Happy Shopping!
