December Scarf of the Month

December 1, 2009

It is our final month for our featured Scarf of the Month. To finish it off, we have two yummy projects for you.

The first is not a scarf, but a cowl. I just love having a nice warm layer to wear that does not get in the way of doing things with my hands, but adds that extra bit of warmth. Harmonia’s Rings Cowl does just that. It uses a mobius cast on for added interest, and then just sits nicely on the sholders for a classy, comfortable accent piece for Winter. We did it in Plymouth’s Mushishi (one skein), but we also have many other yarns that would work up wonderfully.

┬áThe second is the Running Hearts scarf, a pretty, seasonal ┬álace scarf, especially if you are Scandanavian (hearts are used as a Christmas motif in Scandanavian countires). It can be worn plain, or embelished like the sample. We have knit it up in Cascade’s Cloud 9, but it is looking very nice in a number of different yarns.

And that will be it for the scarves. Next year? Mittens and gloves!

Oooooh! The new Malabrigo Twist is in!

December 1, 2009

We love our Malabrigo. It is so soft, and the colors are wonderful. Malabrigo did something terrific, though, they came up with a new yarn that uses the same fiber and same colors, but with a twist for durability! They do love us. Between this and the new Lambs Pride Bulky, we have more temptations than ever. Come pet!

It is so sad, the photos just do not do the yarn justice. You will just have to come in to enjoy them fully. Oh, we got a few new colors in the regular Malabrigo as well!

Ain’t we got fun!

December 1, 2009

We thought it would be fun to post a few pictures from some of our recent classes. In the pictures are the Felted Gnome class and Needle Felted Ornaments. The folks were having a blast!
