What's On Our Needles?

Pattern: The Turtle's Journey by Heather Anderson 
Yarn: Cotton Supreme by Universal Yarn 

From "This blanket is perfect as a baby blanket or a gift for your favorite turtle lover. You’ll enjoy watching your knitting grow as the baby sea turtles make their way from sand to sea with three very different stitch patterns." Mary is using 3 colors of Universal's amazing Cotton Supreme which is the perfect yarn for any baby project! 


Pattern: Anisie by Katherine Mehls
Yarn: Uchiwa by Noro

 From "A stylish oversized tee is a summer staple, perfect to pop on anytime. This version, worked in the NORO Uchiwa, is knit from one side seam to the other. Garter edges play off the stockinette body, which features subtle shaping. A simple purl ridge delineates the center front and back." This pattern includes instructions for sizes extra small to 5X! 

Pattern: Everyday Sweater by Andrea Mowry
Yarn: Brighton Beach by Universal Yarns

 From "The Everyday Sweater is knit from the top down (meaning you can try it on as you go and add length to suit your own personal style!), beginning with the collar. You will separate the sleeves placing them on hold while the body is finished and then the sleeves are returned to the needle, picking up stitches for the underarm for a totally seamless sweater!" Linda is using Brighton Beach which is a linen/cotton/acrylic blend and she is very happy with how it is turning out so far. Stop by soon to check out the many beautiful colors of this yarn.
