Cool Socks

This looks like a lovely handpainted scarf... but no.... It is actually a Sock Blank that you unravel and knit into a sock. This is from Plymouth Yarn and comes in a variety of colorways.
You unravel one end and start knitting. It is really fun to knit because you don't know how the pattern is going to come out and you just want to keep knitting to see how it will look.

Here is the finished sock. I was really happy with how it turned out and like the way the finished sock feels. Now I just have to knit the 2nd one....

New Sweaters

We have a few new store samples made out of yummy yarns for you to knit.  Even though it was over 80 degrees on Saturday Debra still looked cute in her sundress and blue cardigan made out of Classic Silk from Classic Elite. The yarn is a silk/cotton blend which is perfect for our climate.

The openwork stitches on the fronts of this cardigan make it a good look for the Spring and Summer.

This pullover is made of Wool Bamboo- also from Classic Elite. The yarn makes a soft lightweight garment and the bamboo gives it a slight shine.
The ZigZag rib gives a slimming  look to the bottom of the sweater.

Today it is 58 degrees in our area. This Organic Wool from Nashua makes a cozy cardigan for a cool May day. The organically dyed wool is soft and really show off this cable pattern. This yarn has a gauge of 3.5 sts to the inch which makes this pattern work up quickly.
