Not so long ago, in a trendy café in Upstate NY, I met up with
Nadine Storyk Curtis, owner of Be Sweet. She plopped 4 skeins
of her beautiful yarn on the table and asked me if I could do
anything with them. Silly question, Nadine! - Of course I could!
I loved the way the colours looked together – they reminded me
of moving water so I decided to design a piece to enhance that
spirit. Not only a dramatic stitch pattern, Rivers and Tides can
also be worn several different ways – a poncho, a wrap, a large
loose cowl or a small and cozy double wrapped cowl. How will
you wear yours?
