Store Projects on Display

This week, my contract knitter Maree has been very busy knitting some new goodies from the Araucania Nature Wool that I have in-store.  I am going to visit my sister in London in December so these will do double-duty!

Maree said the Araucania is sooo soft and very easy to knit.  I think she did a fabulous job!

Araucania Nature Wool - fingerless gloves

This was a freebie pattern from Ravelry.com.  But I have a couple of Araucania pattern books in-stock too.  They are just beautiful!

The scarf was also a freebie pattern from Rav!  Gotta love Rav!

It’s a bit hard to see in these pics but the subtle shading of the Nature Wool makes it very pretty!

Sugar ‘n Cream

As the weather slowly gets warmer, many of my customers get busy with summer knitting in cotton and cotton/blends.

This year, we will be again increasing our stash of Sugar ‘n Cream so I got my knitting teacher Sue to knit this cute summer tote from 3 balls of Sugar ‘n Cream in ‘Jewels’, to showcase the range in-store:

The top and straps are knitted on 4mm needles and the body of the bag on 10mm needles.  A great project for summer and at a cost of just $12.90!  The pattern is a free leaflet available in-store or from the Sugar ‘n Cream website.

Abuelita Merino

We have some new colours arriving in the beautiful Abuelita Merino Lace and Worsted next week.  I am always raving about what a wonderful alternative it is to malabrigo, but a friend of mine who was in the shop the other day showed me a hat she had crocheted from the Merino Worsted and remarked how it was MUCH softer than malabrigo.

So if you’d like to try some or feel how soft it is, come into the shop and touch our knitted ‘Ishbel’ shawlette:

This was knitted in Abuelita Merino baby lace – in ‘Blue Stone’.  It only used 50g of yarn! (half a skein).
