We love getting to know the designers behind the knit, so we asked Emily
What is your favourite part about your design?
The rainbow blocks of color that increase in size as the shawl grows. Each time I get to watch the transition between the skeins and see how they blend together.
What is your favorite spring or summer flower?
I love lily of the valley and hydrangeas.
