I designed this shawl to celebrate my first time at the Knitting in the Hills Retreat! I have long heard about this fabulous retreat, and this shawl flew off my needles in anticipation! I named it for the first bakery I ever worked at in Austin, TX - Wildwood, which lead to my pre-knitting career as a baker and pastry chef. This 3-color shawl is full of relaxing garter stitch with a mix of engaging short row stripes and lace!
