No, I didn’t forget…. 🙂 This week I have something for everyone I hope. Crocheters, Beginning Knitters, and those up for a challenge. I know I am known as “the shop meanie” but I really do aim to please.
I happened upon this little Crocheted Augusta Shawl by Andrea Mules. I think the Ombre color affect is key. Freia Sport would be my choice!
Next, for those knitters that are up for a challenge…and love cables, you might want to check this one out. It is the perfect fisherman pullover. The Honeycomb Aran Pullover by Patons. I saw this and immediately thought of Dotti, the cable queen. It is a sweater everyone would like someone else to knit for them. But if you are up for it and start now, it could be done by Christmas. We have plenty of Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Worsted in the shop. Just stay with a lighter color to make those cables pop.
Finally, for those that want a simple project with lovely results, check out Purl Soho’s No-Purl Ribbed Scarf. Mom just cast on in Duck Duck 50/50 DK for a shop sample. There really are no purls! Wonder how long it will take her? (The slowest knitter on the planet)
Enjoy the weekend and the beautiful weather!
