THE MULBERRY STREET COWL
Mulberry Street has so many meanings for me personally. There are so many memories, It’s a street that my late Gigi lived on. It’s the street my little little kids walked the parade on and treat-or-treated on. Too many fiber lovers it’s the street they camp out on waiting for the gates to open to the magical land of the NY Sheep & Wool!
Mulberry street has so much love in my heart and I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I love creating Mulberry street.
