For many years Inua Wool Shoppe was the only LYS in Interior Alaska. The owner, Leah generously shared her knowledge and passion for fiber arts. When I was a young knitter she patiently taught me the foundation of all I know about knitting and fiber arts. Many Alaskan knitters know of the simple lace pattern she generously gave away to those looking for a project for that special skein they felt drawn to bring home with them. This shawl honers Leah, her gifts to the community and all the lives she touched.
Leah's Lace is a crescent shawl that seeks to highlight the spirit of the different dye methods used to create yarn. The the iconic Inua Wool Shoppe Lace Pattern is highlighted on a gently speckled color-way. The glorious chaos of a highly variegated yarn is grounded by a deeper tonal yarn with striping between the two.
