For all the knitters looking for a fast fun mitten pattern try Sally Melville's knit flat mitts and hat. I chose Vienna a yarn from Naturally. It works up lovely and soft. I customized the mitt length to fit my hand- since I know that garter stitch can grow, I wanted a good fit without too much room at the finger top..The Anthon Berg cookie was full when Ruth brought it to class... just a wee bit of Danish delight... Mitt #2 is almost finished and then of course comes the knit flat hat... since the weather is turning back to winter again, I'll need a good fitting fashionable hat..
After passing through 9 towns, four states and crossing the border, my order should arrive today.
Lamb's Pride 85% wool and 15% mohair is a felters dream... Wonderful yarn to knit with... fabulous yarn to felt with...
We have dozens of colours to chose from in the aran weight and a dozen colours in the bulky to satisfy your knitting habits...
The excitement around weaving with colourful yarns is - What will it look like... even when we knit we wonder how it will stripe out. Well, once again a beautiful creation from Cheryl using our Regia sock yarn.
My friend Donna brought in her stunning Noro Swirl jacket to show off in the wool shop. She thought maybe it would inspire a few knitters to make one. The cafe knitters of yesterday were gaga over this jacket. I've ordered books and getting ready for the yarn order as we have a few serious "Swirlers" in the crowd...
