Class Description: Magical Thinking was designed for the 2019 LYS Day, April 27. If you purchase the yarn to make it at a participating yarn store you will receive a coupon code from the store for the pattern, good for LYS weekend!

“Magical Thinking” and “All Points South” are a pullover shawls – NOT PONCHOS! This is an important point as I have a 15 year old daughter and cannot cause her social annihilation by designing a poncho, so please follow this rule of nomenclature – and make my life easier. It is the size of “All Points South.” It fits everyone and ruches up more for those who are bustier.

Finally, consider wearing it with the point off to the side rather than towards the “Lady Bits” – it just makes my heart sing when people style it to the side!”
