Springtime Shawls + Yarn Crawl LA

Spring is finally here! We know that some parts of the US have experienced a more hash winter than others, but it's probably safe to say that we're all equally excited to spot signs of spring - and sock yarn shawls are certainly in that category!

There is currently a KAL happening for Grace Akhrem's excellent new Striped Tooth Shawl design, which uses two colors of our La Jolla yarn (shown here in Byzantine Gold and Orange Amber).
The Sisley Shawl by Mindy Wilkes is worked from the bottom up using a beautiful modified Estonian lace pattern - plus, it can be worn as either a scarf or wrap! It's shown here knit up in our vibrant Candy Pink colorway.
Leila Raabe's Florin Triangle Shawl (shown here in Masala) will be available exclusively at Unwind during the upcoming Los Angeles Yarn Crawl from April 3-6, 2014 - you can also visit the Baah Pop-Up Shop while you're there! If you can't make it to the crawl, don't worry! This pattern will be available for purchase on Ravelry beginning April 7th.
Speaking of the LA Yarn Crawl, we are looking forward to sponsoring this year's fun-filled event! There will be pattern exclusives, raffles and prize drawings, plus workshops and other exciting events, too. Click here to get your free passport - we hope to see you soon!

Work in progress Wednesday:
I've started a new shawl.....Ashburn....by Melanie Berg.  Am so in love with knitting it!.....just can't put it down. I'm using 2 skeins of Baah La Jolla in Black Pearl and Grey Onyx.  I started with the first third of the shawl with Black Pearl and I am now using the Grey Onyx for the 2nd third.  Stay tuned for more of my works in progress.....
