Ashlyn

Best Blog Tips

It seems to me you can never have enough easy to wear, pretty things to put around your neck, even on breeze evenings, they just make you feel more comfortable! Ashlyn is easy and pretty and feminine. The stitches have enough "give" to make the scarflet appear as if it was knitted. The drape and the feel of these stitches is wonderful.  Enjoy!
