 W e s t e r n F o o t h i l l s W r a p Warm Weather Wearing by Kim Hamlin, photo by Emily Delamater
 When I happened upon this lace pattern, it immediately reminded me of the mountains, rivers and pine trees surrounding me here in Western Maine. As an avid knitter, I find comfort in the fact that I can wear wool, basically year round, and never feel the need to stop knitting. When it does get hot, I’ll switch to light weight yarns and smaller projects that don’t touch my lap. This ethereal wrap takes up so little space, you can always bring it along for the changing temperatures of Maine. Whether you need a quick layer while hik- ing, or an elegant wrap for a night of theater, the Western Foothills Wrap has you covered.
