Wrapped in Color

Wrapped in Color: 30 Shawls to Knit is the latest book from mother-daughter team Maie and Taiu Landra, the makers of Koigu yarn.

When Laura and I saw a preview of it at the Winter Trade Show in Phoenix, we wanted to sit right down and start knitting. Koigu yarn is gorgeous in the hank, but the way Maie uses the different colorways together in her designs is just incredible.

Here are four of my favorites from the book.
