Featuring...Mickie's beautiful creation using one of Yarnmarket's exclusive patterns

I love it when a group of people work together to create something truly beautiful. You know...the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Mickie is a Raveler (Mickieswall)who was interested in the Ladybugs for Lesa shawl design created by the very talented Annie Smith. Annie is not only a valued Yarnmarket customer, she's also a designer who won a prize in the TKGA Contest we sponsor. It was a surprise to us that she lived nearby -- and an even greater surprise that she shopped here -- when we contacted her about her achievement.

Mickie was intent on making the Ladybugs for Lesa design so she mentioned on Ravelry that she liked it, but was having trouble reading the charts. Onto the scene stepped Cheri, another Raveler (Dartfrog) who was wonderful enough to re-work the charts so they're a bit easier for everyone to use.

This is the result. Isn't it fantastic? We're thrilled that Mickie liked the pattern that Annie first developed. And we're so appreciative that Cheri stepped in to help us all out.

That's teamwork. And doesn't it look absolutely wonderful?

Thank you for your kind words. Annie's design was a delight to knit, and I have to give Cheri lots of credit for re-doing the charts. I absolutely love the shawl!
