Sweet Shawlettescomments (2) June 4th, 2012
Summer is just around the corner, as are beach vacations (the perfect time and place to catch up on your knitting). What’s something that will keep you looking hot on those cool shore nights? Why, it’s one of the 25 beautiful shawls featured in Sweet Shawlettes by Jean Moss, of course! Check out the Vamp Boa shown below. It’s lightweight and quick to knit, so if you start soon, you can have it ready for your next big night out.
Jean Moss is known worldwide for her distinctive couture knits, which she’s been creating for more than 25 years. She’s been busy blog touring to promote Sweet Shawlettes. You can check out her U.S. tour or her world tour on her website. Both are full of Jean’s great knitting advice. You can even hear her talk about what it was like to knit samples for Ralph Lauren if you listen to the CraftSanity.com podcast. I love the behind-the-scenes information!
Jean recently finished a knitter’s tour in the U.K. on which she guided a group of knitters around York and the Lake District. How fabulous! You can read all about her adventures on her blog. And as soon as she has time to recover, I’m hoping she’ll write a little guest blog for us.
The photos below give you a small glimpse of what’s in the book. If you like what you see, you can buy it in our store.
