Walden shawl kit

  • Find that quiet, handmade place in your heart with Walden

    As a girl, I loved to imagine life in a cabin in the woods, where I would make everything by hand and explore the natural world every day. I was fascinated with stories of nature and treehouses and especially tales of young people who went to live in the woods.

    Walden began as a way to honor this quiet, handmade place in my heart. That imaginary cabin in the woods where life is both simple and rich.

    The Walden shawl brings to life this feeling of both simplicity and ability. It's a crescent-shaped shawl but constructed in a slightly unconventional way. It has three wedges, two of which are simple stockinette, and the third is a trellised leaf cable.

    To me, Walden has become a touchstone. It's shawl, an illustration, and a bit of a handmade meditation that can remind me to go slow and enjoy the simple joy of making.

    About the kit

    I have four color options for Walden: the original deep ruby red, called Sugar Maple, Beautyberry (the pictured purple skein(, and Cabin (the pictured light brown). For Stitches West 2020, I also dyed on of my new spring colorways on this lovely Yak Blend: Garcia Girls. It's pictured separately and is a rich deep green-blue.
