Those of you that know me personally probably know of my long standing obsession with plaid. I love it. Am constantly drawn to it. Even choose it on accident sometimes. So, it only made sense that it would make its way into my knitting… When I saw the range of colors and the airy, ethereal quality to Sensai, I knew I had found my yarn -- it all came together and just made sense. I hope you love the finished product as much as I do. Plaid, please.
