Mary Jane's Afternoon Excursion

Last weekend, Mary Jane got a little stir crazy. After a long hot summer in the city, the crisp fall weather got her itching for some fresh country air. Even though it was a little cool, she knew if she put her Sugar Maple Shawl over her favorite corduroy jacket, she could still put the top down on her vintage MG convertible and skedaddle out of town. Forty minutes and one speeding ticket later, she found herself wandering in the lush woods just outside a little town famous for its sheep and wool festival.

(The preview of Interweave Crochet's Fall issue went live today! Sharon Ballsmith used our Shepherd Sock in #610 Zombie BBQ to create the Sugar Maple Shawl.

This colorway has been an absolute runaway hit. It was originally designed for Sock Summit last year and it was so popular that we decided to make it part of our regular line up. This shawl certainly shows it off beautifully.)

A vintage MG is worth a speeding ticket. And so is great yarn--love that sugar maple.

My first car was a 1965 MGB. I loved that car even though it spent more time in the shop than on the road. Sometimes it's all about looking pretty.

The combination of the shawl and the jacket is so cool. She looks like a model.
