Moya Star Shawl

maRRose - CCC --- Moya Star Shaw-31It feels like I’m cheating a bit in the “ta-dah”-department today……
You see, I finished this project some time ago already, but ….. I couldn’t share it with you until now.maRRose - CCC --- Moya Star Shaw-12On the occasion of the grand opening of Claudia‘s new yarn store today, a brand new design by talented Heike/”MadewithLoops” is launched:  the “Moya Star Shawl”.
I was thrilled when Claudia and Heike asked me to play a  – small but really fun – part in all this: to be on their tester team.

Part of my “task” was also to translate Heike’s pattern in Dutch, and that too was fun to do!

More information on the “Moya Star Shawl” and how to lay your hands on this gorgeous design and yarn, can be found on Heike’s blog.
