Garnet Ghosts by Aimee Alexander
I've always been fascinated with our state's boom and bust mining history, so when the knitting with these rusty red beads and golden yarn, my mind naturally wandered through the dusty roads of one of Montana's most intact ghost towns, Garnet, Montana. The name Garnet Ghosts is a nod to the industrious people, a vast landscape, and the gold and gemstones of an age gone by.
