Katya is a lovely heirloom shawl worked into an MKAL spread out over an entire year with all original lace,. This circular shawl can be worked in white, made into a wedding veil for a special family member. Or in color it makes a great addition to any wardrobe. Worked from the center out this shawl is amazing. When we are done the shawl will be a massive piece that may just win you blue ribbons at the local state fair.

Part of an MKAL which will begin on December 30, 2014, clues will come out on Wednesdays. Join the no chat Yahoo Group to find out when we are dyeing and shipping. We have a Ravelry Group here for contests, prizes and chat.
