Maybe it was the golden tree leaves or an evening chill, whatever it was you realize that the weather has reached a turning point and it’s time to put on a favorite knit to warm you. Turning Point can be worn as a shawlette on the shoulders for that special event or as a scarf wrapped around your neck.

With quick to knit basic lace and sparkly beads it could make a great gift!
