At the shop on Saturday, Barbara wore this beautiful shawl she made.

The pattern (I'll ask Barbara to post which pattern she used) called for Silk Garden doubled. Sounds easy enough, right? Nope. Because they aren't wound in the same colors in the color way for each skein.

Wanting the perfect color matching, Barbara pulled out skeins of the Silk Garden so she could line the color way up. She trimmed the shaw in Manos. The result is amazing! Barbara recommends buying an extra skein to help match up! Yes, we have Silk Garden and Manos in the shop if you're feeling adventurous and want to give the shawl a try. Aren't those colors perfect on Barbara?
