What's On Our Needles?


Pattern: Rainchain Shawl by Meghan Jones 
Yarn: Tussah Kissed by Plymouth 
From Ravelry: "Worked from the top down with stacked eyelets that increase in size and narrow sections of linen stitch the Rain Chain shawl is reminiscent of a line of upside down umbrellas catching droplets of rain. The curved crescent is an easy to wear shape and the combination of garter stitch, large eyelets and linen stitch look fantastic in a solid, kettle, or multicolored yarn." 


Pattern: Ollie Cowl by Laura Dobratz 
Yarn: Simply Spectacular DK by Emma's Yarns 
Linda is getting a start on her Christmas knitting with this amazing scarf/cowl. From Ravelry: "Ollie is a simple, quick knit that is the perfect size to wear single or doubled up for extra warmth. Emma’s Yarn is soft and has a beautiful spring perfect for showing off stitches." 


Pattern: Chevron Blanket by Purl Soho 
The fun irregular chevron pattern in this blanket is an eye-catcher. This blanket is a relatively easy and quick knit, and the chevron pattern and color changes will keep you interested. Linda has chosen to knit her blanket in a beautiful variegated cotton. 


Pattern: Grace by Ella Rae 
Mary has just started on a precious baby sweater called Grace. This sweater pattern includes sizing for 0-36 months, so it can be knit for many little ones in your life. Mary is using My Little Sunshine (#7 Peekaboo) by Jody Long and Katia by Fair Cotton Craft.
