Our Recently Completed Projects

Pattern: Camilla Shawl by Carrie Bostick Hoge 
Yarn: Scintille by Lisa Harding yarn 

 The simple lines of the pattern and the delicate gold and silver strands in the yarn are an unexpected and beautiful combination. This worsted weight yarn contains enough wool to keep you warm, enough metallic thread to keep you fashionable and enough acrylic to make the finished shawl machine washable in cold water. What better combination could a girl ask for? (12% Wool, 49% Acrylic, 39% Polyester Metallic) 
Pattern: Hat with Owls by Yelena Chen
Yarn: Merino Superwash by Plymouth

From Ravelry.com: "The cute owls on this hat are created with simple cables. The pattern includes both written instructions and charts for the stitches used. The pattern is available in one size to fit a child or an average adult with head circumference of 21”-23”. The hat is made in the round and does not have a seam.The “eyes” are sewn to the owls’ faces by hand."

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

From Ravelry.com: "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."
