Notes on the project

Third Scottish Thistles shawl and I still absolutely love this pattern. It doesn’t matter what yarn I use, I fall in love with the end result each and every time. I’ve always been a fan of tweed, and knew when I saw this beautiful purple yarn at Moonlight Yarns, that the two were made for each other.
