What's On Our Needles?

Pattern: Pressed Flowers Shawl by Amy Christoffers 
Yarn: Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold and Simply Spectacular DK by Emma's Yarn 

This beautiful mosaic knit will bring a field of flowers into your winter-scape to keep you warm. Kitty is using Silky Wool for the Main Color and Emma's DK as the contrast color.  

Pattern: Touchstone by Fogbound Knits 
Yarn: Varanasi by Katia 

From Ravelry.com: Sometimes you need to just wind up that recent yarn purchase and knit for the pure joy of it. To remember why you knit. The combination of a simple stitch pattern and garter stitch in this shawl make it ideal for highly variegated yarns, but it will be equally beautiful in any solid color you love. 

Pattern: Yume by Isabell Kraemer 
Yarn: Zooey by Juniper Moon Farm 

Yume is a beautiful sweater knit seemlessly from the top down with fingering/sport weight yarn. Lightweight but warm and oh so soft, this sweater will be perfect for our Louisiana winter and spring.

Our Recently Completed Projects

Pattern: Dust of Snow by Helen Stewart 

From Ravelry.com: This cozy wrap is an asymmetrical rectangle shape. It features stripes of chevrons alternating with two pretty lace patterns that are simple enough to stand out even with the wildest yarns.  

Pattern: Rose Cottage Cowl by Helen Stewart 
Yarn: Phullu by Marisol 

From Ravelry.com: The Rose Cottage Cowl features a handsome braid cable panel against a background of stockinette stitch for a minimalist modern twist on a traditional design motif. And the lovely Aran or worsted weight yarn means that this piece knits up in a flash, even if you’re new to knitting cables. It’s a wonderful gift that suits just about everyone: knit one for yourself and then more for your family and friends! 

Pattern: Lil Biscuit Sweater by Marie Greene 
Yarn: Worsted Merino Superwash by Plymouth 

This pattern is from Marie Greene's book Knit a Little and is the perfect gift for a child especially when paired with a terrific superwash wool for easy care! Linda changed the biscuit pattern to a snowflake using an Arne and Carlos pattern.  

Pattern: Crunching Leaves Cowl by Casapinka 
Yarn: Cozy Alpaca Chunky by Ella Rae 

From Ravelry.com: This is a cowl that you can cozy down into, an extra layer of thick, soft merino that will keep you toasty as you go about your day. Using two different colors (including variegated yarns) or a single color, you can make a unique Crunching Leaves Cowl. The “Woven Stitch” has the appearance of something woven on a loom but is simple enough for a beginner to complete.

This adorable Christmas tree hat is sized for everyone from newborn to adult and will be a hit with all! Start now and you can have a hat for all Christmas-lovers on your gift list by next Christmas.
