Snow 3 cafe wrap
Snow comes in so very many variations of white. Add some birches and lichen covered oaks and you have a rainbow of white and grey. I kept trying to photograph the subtlety but finally realised, I just have to knit it. Golden sunlight with lavender shadows, blue grey skies and glittering snowfields.
I am one of the lucky few who lives on a cross country ski trail. I met the owner of the ski area in the US when we were both 16-17. We did not meet again until after he found out I had moved to Latvia 30 years later. I told him I was buying a house near his. He said the ski trails are up the hill. I said no, they go right past my house, so he moved them, and put up a sign; Inese – shawls with an arrow pointing toward my studio. I have had people ski over to buy and custom order knits.
I am also getting a bit spoiled, stopping a skier to ask if its too icy. Thinking twice about going out if its too cold or overcast, there is always tomorrow. Today the sun is shining, so I will ski a looong loop. I can work this evening when its dark, that makes so much more sense to me:)

I use many thin strands of cotton, kid mohair and silk to “paint” my colors with yarn. The cafe wrap is soft and warm, and the chunky cotton keeps the breeze from your back.
29″ (74cm) wide and 38″- 52″ (97 – 132cm) top + bottom around will fit most everyone.
