Yarn Along: Boneyard Shawl

Today I'm joining in the Yarn Along, working on my Boneyard Shawl while flipping through a new quilting book I just recently treated myself to. The book is The Gentle Art of Quiltmaking. The photos are beautiful and the colours very rich. All of the projects in the book are inspired by colours. It's just what's needed to perk up a dreary winter day. I'm also loving working on my shawl in richly coloured Handmaiden Ottawa yarn.


  1. I love this shade of blue. I am using it in my baby's quilt. I am not knitting this week sadly, but I am quilting a bunch!

  2. How beautiful your shawl will be! And how wonderful that book looks. I always find myself wanting to sew with very colorful fabrics in winter.

  3. i love the look of your shawl that wool looks gorgeous. and the book looks good too, maybe this will be the year i finally make a quilt!

  4. The blues remind me of the ocean. Your masthead photo with the girls in red with the sheep is magical.

  5. hello lovely friend...and what a beautiful and inspirational blog you have here! I have also tried the boneyard shawl, but for some reason, i just couldnt get it:( maybe I'll give it another shot...for our bread, to answer your question, I use the king arthur's white flour which is unbromated and unbleached... :) I'm off to read more of your blog:)
