Happy New Years!  To celebrate a New Year I began working on a new design the first week of January.  The goal was to make a larger piece that could be both a shawl and a sculptural scarf.  I used Malabrigo Rios in two different colour ways to make this design.  There is one available on my Etsy store at http://www.valeriebaberdesigns.etsy.com

The Elegant Lace Scarf/Shawl is made with hand painted merino wool.  Luxurious and soft with colours of the sunset to warm a cold day.  I have just finished another one in 2 different purple yarns available soon.  Check out newest designs on my Etsy store or http://www.valeriebaberdesign.com
