What's On Our Needles?

Kit: Cuddle Buddie by Plymouth 

These precious little kits are the perfect thing to help you whip up a quick gift for your favorite little one. Each kit includes the animal noggin, plus enough yarn in 4 colors to make the lovey. Plymouth's Cuddle Buddies are made with a worsted weight yarn in 90% acrylic and 10% bamboo. Finished size 20" x 16". Stop by the shop today to choose your kit! 

Pattern: Chocolette by Elena Fedotova 
Yarn: Sonata by Noro 

From "The airy and delicate Chocolette shawl begins at the narrow tip and grows into a beautiful accent piece which can be made as small or large as you wish. The design uses the simplest crochet stitches: single crochet (and its variations) and chains combined into three textured stitch patterns, which are fun and easy to make." 

Pattern: Jasper Blanket by Linda Whaley  
Yarn: Appalachian Baby by Appalachian Baby Design 

From "Simple knit and purl patterns are placed in block stripes across the blanket and surrounded by a simple garter stitch border. If you can cast on, knit, purl and cast off you will be able to knit this blanket.  This knitting pattern includes four blanket sizes - a small square baby blanket that is perfect for small babies, buggies and car seats, and a longer rectangular baby blanket that is great for older babies at bedtime. The medium and large throws/afghans are perfect for cosy family snuggles on the sofa." 

Pattern: Basic Cable Afghan (personal pattern) 
Yarn: Merino Superwash by Plymouth 

This stunning afghan featuring cables surrounded by seed stitches will look great draped over the back of your sofa. It will keep you warm while you are knitting it this winter and would make a great gift. 

Pattern: Vanilla Latte by Virginia Rose-Jeanes 
Yarn: Tigress by Urth 

This yarn helps you to knit the perfect socks for any LSU fan. Go Tigers! From "The pattern stitch itself is super simple - actually easier than ribbing since alternate rounds are just knit. The resulting pattern is wide columns of stockinette with narrow columns of garter stitch. Easy peasy! Socks knit in solid or semi-solid yarn are simple and elegant, yet this pattern also is perfect for a striped or highly variegated yarn. Again, it’s your choice!"
