Welcome to 2015! Are you ready to start knitting a pi shawl with me? We’ll begin at the end of January and finish up somewhere between US Pi Day (3/14) and EU Pi Day (22/7).

This year we’ll be knitting something from my 3.14159 Shawls ebook. You can knit Emily’s Winter Wonderland (which is the one I’ll be making), the Diamond Rings pi shawl (which you may have downloaded as a single pattern), or any of the other designs from the book.

Emily's Winter Wonderland

For Emily’s Winter Wonderland, I’m offering yarn packs of the scrumptious wool-silk sport weight yarn that is featured in the pattern and that I am using for my KAL project.

I originally created this design as a shawlette for a mystery knit along in 2012. I purchased the yarn, A Tree Hugger’s Wife Royal Silk from the dyer, Melissa Highfill, when I was at Seaside Yarns in Juneau, Alaska, on a real knitting cruise in 2012. The colorway was called “glacier.” With such an arctic pedigree, there was no way I could design something that was not inspired by ice and snow. I designed this one step at a time, in sections, just like I would knit a pi shawl. But it’s not entirely a true pi shawl and the center increases are charted out so the yarn overs form the lovely star pattern in the center. Emily’s Winter Wonderland is a larger version made out of merino-silk with additional motifs around the edges to create a very generous sized shawl or a blanket for wrapping up on the couch on a chilly winter afternoon.

Yellowstone is a soft and beautiful yarn, with a blend of wool and a touch of silk for strength and luster. Each skein contains 285 yards of 3-ply luxury. It’s the perfect yarn for a warm winter shawl that can also double as a blanket.

The yarn is available in 9 colors inspired by the beauty of the American wilderness.
