The Moody Kerchief

The Moody Kerchief has been a very special project for me. It was designed in honor of my friend Justine - creative spirit, generous soul and owner of the inspiring LYS/pottery studio, Angelfire Studios.

I have mentioned Justine several times here on TTL. I've shown photos of her store and her gorgeous son modeled the Pembroke Vest for me when he was a tiny lad.

Justine’s husband, Ted, was in a serious accident many weeks ago. He remains in the hospital recovering from his injuries. All proceeds from the sale of this pattern will go to Justine and her family. It is my sincere hope that it brings her comfort during a very difficult time.

I used The Fiber Company's Organik & Savannah yarns for my shawl. Both are delicious yarns, just as we'd excpect from the Fiber Company. Thank you to Courtney & Kate of Kelbourne Woolens for sending them to me. When I visited Angelfire Studios last week I saw that she has a skein or two of the Organik in the color that I used (Fjord). Justine doesn't stock Savannah but she does carry several other beautiful yarns from The Fiber Company along with many other yarns that would work well for this DK toWorsted weight shawl. If you'd like to further support the family, I recommend you purchase yarns from Angelfire Studios, either by going into the store or by purchasing online. Justine even ships overseas.

Beautiful pattern, and a beautiful way to lend a hand to a friend in need.

Very nice! Love the photos too.

Very pretty Kirsten. I love the colors you used for it. How sweet of you to donate everything to your friend in her time of need. Beyond kind. :)

Kirsten, your generosity always touches me. You rock! Can't wait to make a Moody!

I got a little teary eyed....

I'm sorry to hear of Justine's troubled times. I wish she and her husband the best. I love the scarf!
