Better late than never… that’s what they say, right?

We do apologize for the late posting of this pattern. Our best excuse is that hashtag you’ve seen posted all over social media: #Blizzard2015

Having said that… if you are also snowed-in (or would enjoy this regardless), please feel free to download the pattern for the shawl below! This was a gift to Cheryl from her friend Sharon. Thank you Sharon for allowing us to share this with ALL of our friends!

Domestically Disabled Knitting Bags Make Great Gifts!

Cheryl received this fairly indestructible knitting bag as a holiday gift from a fellow knitting witch who lives in NYC.  Every knitter should have a project bag like this one!
