Note: Many have found they prefer the fit when going up a size. This is highly recommended!!!

This design is in honor of my beloved friend Elena Nodel, who despite her best efforts, could not get me to design in bright colors and begrudgingly dyed me my beloved foggy grey color. <3 I miss her friendship but she has made such an impact on me and I will never forget her. I would not be who I am as a designer without her, and I will never forget her helping me and showing me the ropes when I first started out. Elena, you are missed….

An old, scratched up, rust red canoe bobs off the shoreline where the evergreen forest meets the water. Small ripples move out over the flat mirror like surface of the lake while clouds hover low. A lone island, just small enough for a campsite, sits a half mile offshore. Tall white pines tower above wind smoothed granite boulders and a short sandy beach enshrouded with blueberry bushes. A densely overgrown trail winds from the beach to a small clearing bathed in pine needles: the perfect place to tent. Coleman lantern, Bean boots, tweed sweater, frying pan, and flannel blankets lay carefully by the campsite as the first night’s fire is lit in the stone ring.

NOTE: Consider going a size up if you are a tighter knitter. Please swatch!!!

Personal yardages can fluctuate, especially when cabled fabric is involved. Please consider purchasing an extra skein (or 1-200 yards) if you have a tendency to go over a pattern’s suggested yardage.
