What's On Our Needles?

Pattern: Back Bay Boomerang by Suzie von Reyn

Yarn: Poema Glitter and Cashsilk Cotton Degrade by by Laineys du Nord

This simple garter stitch boomerrang shaped shawl will make a big statement due to this amazing combination of yarns. The subtle glitter yarn and the silk mohair will make this shawl glamourous and cozy.

Pattern: Architexture by Jennifer Weissman

Yarn: Exquisite by West Yorkshire Spinners


Architexture is a rectangular scarf with pointed ends. Fully reversible, it is a collection of textures that enhance one another ~ made all the more striking because they are knitted on the bias. The frequent changes in stitch pattern keep the project engaging from beginning to end.

This scarf will be perfect for all of the knit-worthy adults and teens in your life … but make sure that you knit one for yourself, too!

Pattern: Field Sweater by Camilla Vad

Yarn: Aerial by Berocco and Criative DK by Euro Baby

This beautiful soft sweater is knit from the top down with no seams. The mohair is held along with the alpaca and cotton only at the yoke in order to form the grains and then it is dropped.
