Ruthie Marks Shawl

October, 2016–Ruthie Marks is a crochet designer with many books under her belt.  She recently made a generous donation to Knitting in Recovery of yarn and her books.  Staff at Turning Point Foundation’s New Visions center, New Visions clients, and Knitting in Recovery founder, Lise Solvang all crocheted the same shawl in different colors using Ruthie’s pattern.

Many thanks, Ruthie for sharing your passion with us!  Thanks also to Basha Kooler, whom Ruthie has designed for and who donated the yarn to Ruthie to pass on to us.
