Michelle's Wrap

Michelle's knitting needles must be smoking. I can't believe all the knitting she's been doing! Her latest project was this shrug knitted out of Denim Cotton Recycled using a Ravelry pattern, Karolin.

Love it, Michelle!

Waves of Fire

Well, Liz just had to do a wrap using the pooling technique on her warp and then fulling the project. The wrap looked and felt so scrumptious that I just knew I had to have one - now. 

I had so many other things on the burner, but I pushed them to the back and immediately went to warping. I used Malabrigo Seleccion Privada B for the warp and Cascade Longwood Sport for the weft. I hemstitched the edging, trimmed the fringe short and fulled. I love it! I want a blanket now...

New Crochet Patterns

We are delighted to announce that we are now carrying All My Styles Crochet Patterns. Dalyne Moyer is the designer and author and has been crocheting for over 30 years and designing patterns since 2006. Some of her original designs have been published in Crochet World Magazine.
Everyone is commenting on how her latest crochet patterns, Knit Look Fingerless Gloves, Knit Look Infinity Scarf and Star Pillow, look as if they were knitted not crocheted. The yarns used were Berroco Vintage and Eco Duo.
The star pillow, featuring the stunning Malabrigo Rios yarn, is the first in Dalyne’s new line of star pillows. She has a lot of ideas for the star pillows, so watch for many more to come.
You can also see more of her styles on Ravelry.

Shirley's First Woven Scarf!

After Shirley saw my Log Cabin Scarf, she decided that she wanted to make it but first she needed to start with something simpler. She puchased a loom and had it warped in less than 20 minutes with Marble Chunky.

She took it home to weave and followed instructions in the book to end it. Wow! Turned out great and I love the background in the pic!

Monday Group and Mukluks

Shirley has been having so much fun teaching her Monday group. She's always so excited telling me about them. I feel like I'm missing out!

Recently the group finished knitting Mukluks. Didn't they do an outstanding job?!
Left to right: Michelle, Susan, Shirley, Michelle, Stacy, and Anita. (Next time we need a picture of the teacher in there also.)
