Spin your shawl kit giveaway!
I dare you to say "Miranda's Sea Shawl by the Seashore" 3 times fast! July, Garilynn came up with a beautiful and versatile shawl pattern- I think this pattern will become quite popular in the next few months when the weather begins to turn cooler and folks need a little something extra about them. I love the idea of spinning your own shawl and Garilynn has included fiber from WCMercantile for you to try in this kit.
In this pattern, Garilynn talks about how she notices that in Waterhouse's depiction of Miranda, she's not wearing any sort of shawl though the weather is obviously violent- see above picture from www.jwwaterhouse.com and I think it's very cool that she would notice this! Maybe it was intentional- showing how vulnerable the Miranda character is when the shipwreck occurs?
At any rate, this is an easy and versatile pattern and I think you'll thoroughly enjoy it!
Visit Garilynn today, find something you love, and write about it in the comments section below. We'll be giving away this kit to a lucky commenter this week- you can gain extra entries by twittering, facebooking, plurking etc! Just remember to let us know you did ;)
