In June of 2016, on a particularly sultry weekend,
TNNA was happening in Washington, DC.
Among the many beautiful fibers and friends,
I found dear Kate of Dragonfly Fibers.
She generously offered me a few skeins of
Valkyrie, her lovely new superwash worsted.
I loved the twist, texture, and the colors.
I quickly knit a deep cowl.
A blend of Short Rows, Mosaic Colorwork, it was a joy to make.
The pattern was sent to Knitty - and Amy thought it was great, but...
Wouldn't it be nice to add some shaping?
Sure. I said. It really would.
It was a really good call.
So much fun.
