We do have a strong knitting community in Poland. Organized knitting meetings are very popular, with knitting friends meeting for coffee, chatting, and of course knitting together.
Every year in September, two of my friends, myself and our respective husbands collaborate in organizing an annual knitting meeting held in Toruń, called “Drutozlot” (Needle Rally), where we host knitters from different places in Poland, and even a few participants from abroad. We also invite talented Polish indie hand dyers to attend so knitters can buy their yarn.

Since my husband is also an indie yarn dyer, he and I have decided to join forces this year and prepare something special, something characteristic for Toruń and for “Drutozlot”…
Something that would remind everybody of our meeting, colors and architecture of Toruń Old Town, delicious gingerbreads …

As a result, the “Toruń” shawl was born. This lovely crescent-shaped shawl is designed to show off the gorgeous gothic colorways of Dye Dye Done delicious Pure Merino. Simple garter stitch sections emphasize the beauty of the yarn while stitch patterns incorporating unusually large openings add visual interest.
