I first encountered Dianna Walla when her Pine Bough Cowl floated into my computer one day four years ago. It was the sort of Fair Isle that really, really makes my day—two colors, memorable stitch pattern, snack sized. I loved making that thing.
I never thought then that I’d have the chance to launch a new Dianna Walla pattern on MDK. But here we are—such a pleasure.
