Winter's Moon was inspired by the Super Moons seen at the beginning of 2019. The color and sparkle of the yarn reminded me of the moonlight reflecting on the snow. And I wished I had a soft yet warm shawl to wrap myself in.
Winter's Moon is a triangle shaped shawl worked asymmetrically from the top left corner to the right edge.

The way this shawl is constructed you can make it as small or as large as you would like. Please keep in mind that making alterations in size will change the yardage requirements.
Pattern is for intermediate knitters because it involves cable knitting, knot stitch, and cluster stitches.
Here is a list of all of the yarn bases that are carried and their fiber content. Please keep in mind that color distribution and saturation will vary greatly from base to base and from what is depicted in each listing.
I do a lot research to make sure that all of the bases that I carry are ethically sourced from reputable, cruelty-free, mulesing-free farms and mills from around the world. My yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes in smoke-free environment in a dedicated space that I affectionately call my dye lab. And I also wash all of my yarns after dyeing them with a lavender wool wash. However, while my dye studio is pet free, I do have 4 cats and cat hair a mysterious thing and seems to find its way into all places.
Currently I am working on the discontinuation of a lot of yarn bases and I will also be bringing in a few new ones.
Recommended Wash Instructions For All Yarns: Gently hand wash in cold water and dry flat. Some colors may also bleed the first time the yarn is washed. Please keep in mind that non-superwash treated wools tend to bleed colors more than superwash treated wool.
Additional information as of July 2020: Because of Covid-19, supplies of milled yarn is limited as some mills have had to close or are running at half capacity at this particular time. This is not necessarily a bad thing as it ensures the safety of their employees and the product that they in turn are sending to us. This is why all new colors are this point will be preorders. If you are looking for a specific quantity on a specific base for that special project please do not hesitate to contact me for a custom order.
Aurora: (limited edition at this time due to supply chain disruptions) This a 4 ply fingering base yarn that consist of 70% Superwash Merino Wool and 30% Nylon. This super wash merino wool has a subtle softness and warmth while the extra nylon content gives this yarn some added strength. This really reminds me of a hearty wooly touch and feel of a non superwash yarn but has the benefits of the being superwash treated. The wooly natural feel of this yarn base also makes it ideal for more structured knit or crochet items. I am noticing that colors dyed on this base even though it is SW treated still tend to bleed the first few times it is washed. Comes in skeins of 437 yards/ 100 grams.
Charm Fingering Weight: (limited edition at this time due to supply chain disruptions) This is a 4 ply fingering weight yarn that is a 85/15 blend of Extra Fine Superwash Merino/ Nylon and comes in skeins of 437 yds/ 100 grams. It has taken me several months to find, but this is the closest yarn base I have to my Snug base as far as feel and texture. My Snug base has been hard to acquire this past year due to yarn base shortages at this time.
Eclipse Fingering: is a 2-ply fingering weight yarn that is 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. Yarn comes in skeins of 437 yds/ 100 grams. This beautiful base has the look and feel of wooly handspun yarn with its darker and lighter stripes. This is not a superwash base so please keep in mind that the colors dyed on this base will be more muted in tone and may bleed more when wet. I suggest hand washing in cold water with a little wool wash and then dry flat. Yarn base is perfect for felting projects too.

Snug: is a 4-ply blend of 75% superwash Merino wool and 25% Nylon. The springy superwash merino makes this yarn super soft to touch which is one of the reasons why this is my most popular yarn base. Yarn can be machine washed and tumble dry low but I still highly recommend washing this yarn by hand in cold water and drying flat. Each skein of 462 yds/ 100 grams. This base also comes in mini skeins of 92 yds/ 20 grams.
