The Hundred Acre Wood is a place of friendship, adventures and simple pleasures, like a jar full of honey. Designer Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade has infused some of that sweetness into the Hundred Acre Wood shawl, created for Little Skein in the Big Wool and with gentle nods to the beloved childhood story of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne. Pooh’s ardent love of the sweet stuff is reflected in the subtle bee and honeycomb symbols of the lace.
