Hartshorne Woods is the local trail system where I often run and is the inspiration for this shawl. The chart pattern represents the undulating hills in the trails, and the edging highlights the leaves that crunch under my feet when I run. Originally designed in NJ Fiberworks MCN High Twist with colors that were inspired by photos taken in the woods, and updated with a solid sport-weight version using North Bay Fiber Heritage Sport, this shawl represents everything about my happy place.v
