A Mountain of Manos
We've just received a huge shipment from Manos del Uruguay that includes their gorgeous Wool Clasica Naturals (yep, that's how they spell it). They are simply spilling out, eager to dance with your needles.
Jumping for joy would be entirely appropriate at this juncture!
One of our most favorite patterns for Manos is Opening Night -- a swirl of a spiral with a generous shawl collar. This is the perfect season straddling piece. You can find this pattern in Manos's book Collection 8: Metropolitan Diary.
Kim is wearing hers today, fashioned in a cheery red, held closed with one of our lovely shawl pins.
Love the swirl in the back!
We have a beautiful collection of shawl pins, if we do say so!
