So, if you know Cindy then you know she likes yarn that makes a statement, yarn you can really get a handle on, yarn that doesn't mess around, in other words........thick yarn.
We've tried to get her to play around with the small stuff but she wasn't having any of it. We bribed her with beautiful shawl patterns and then it came out that she didn't really like those either and that was it, our hope for her was lost. That was until Zen Yarn Garden came along.
The picture above is of the shawl (she calls it a sharf, shawl/scarf but whatever it's a shawl) that Cindy knit out of Serenity Silk Single. The pattern is Mezquita Shawl by Roxanne Yeun and it's lovely, but made so much lovelier by the delicate fingering weight yarn that is Serenity.
So I advise you all to take a look at Cindy's masterpiece when you come in and maybe make a little comment, nothing too forward but if you can add some good sarcasm it would be appreciated. ;)
