Thank You, LYS Tour-ists!

Thank you, everyone who participated in the 2012 LYS Tour! It was great meeting so many of you from near and far.

It was knit in The Fibre Company’s Acadia, a delicious, slubby mix of merino, baby alpaca and silk. There’s already a beautiful one in greens on Ravlery.  The CCCCC scarf is a crocheted, convertible, chevron cowl in Rowan’s subtly variegated Colourspun...
