Mother's Day Sale, and the new Galaxy Shawl

Mother’s Day Sale
For Mother’s Day I’m having a special sale just for my lovely Newsletter subscribers. From now until May 10, buy 1 pattern, get 1 FREE! Just put at least 2 items in your cart, and use the code “MOM”. Stock up on your favorites!

New Release
I have a new release – the Galaxy Shawl. There’s a new release special discount  - get a 25% discount with code GALAXY!


Galaxy shows the sparkle of distant stars in the edging and wide expanses of deep space in the garter stitch body. It’s a long triangular shawlette that is just the right length to wrap once around the neck. Garter stitch is knit at a looser gauge to create a soft cushy fabric that drapes nicely.
The lacy edge, knit simultaneously with the body, provides interest and charm. This shawl can take you through all of the seasons. It’s light enough to toss in your bag and take along for chilly summer evenings and air conditioned spaces.
It is knit side to side, from one point to the other. It’s perfect for a gradient yarn, or it can showcase a beautiful variegated or handspun yarn. It’s designed to use whatever amount of special yarn you may have.

Would you like to knit along with us? There’s a KAL for the Galaxy Shawl starting on May 10. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly chat and no obligation to use any special yarn or to finish by the end date. It’s all about the fun - come join us in the Ravelry Group! There are lovely prizes :-)
Yarn: 400 to 450 yd. (365 to 410 m) of fingering or sport weight yarn.
Pattern Info: Pattern includes instructions on how to adjust the shawl to use whatever amount of yarn you have.
Instructions include both charted and written directions. 
It has been tech-edited and test knit.
