With a walking stick in one hand and Hanging Vines in the other, I hiked up to Willow Heights Lake. It was very important to find a unique place to show off a finished object as beautiful as this Hanging Vines stole. The afterglow of knitting such a beautiful piece, and of the hike up to this incredible place, is still with me. They both feel like a gift, both were experiences I'll not forget and both will be in my life for years to come.
