A few of the projects that have caught my eye this week.
Contact the stores mentioned for more details and supplies!
Well, we started seeing them everywhere after that!
The version above was knit by Jane at “I Love Knitting” a local yarn store in Denver. Contact the store for color details!
This is a crochet version of the popular Clapotis scarf from Knitty.com. I haven’t made either version, but this one makes me reconsider!
It seems that crochet projects were ubiquitous this week! A reminder that I need to get my hooks out, I guess. LOL
This beautiful scarf a Purls of Wisdom customer made has a beautiful story as well. Ok, maybe bitter sweet. She learned to crochet from her mother, who recently passed away. It seems that many people have stories like that. When I crochet I still think of my grandmother, who passed away when I was a teenager.
This scarf would be good for the man in your life. It’s their exclusive pattern, so contact the store for kit details.
Yarn Del Sol, a LYS in California, used two skeins of Araucania Nuble to make this crocheted moebius cowl. Contact the store for pattern details! I think it’s the Crocheted Moebius Cowl by Churchmouse Yarns and Tea.
Another project using yarn from the Araucania line are these cute booties at Needlework Unlimited, a LYS in Minneapolis. They used leftover Huasco and are now prepared to give a baby gift at the drop of a stitch.
Of course, there is nothing stopping you buying some of this 100% Extra Fine Merino yarn with the intent of making booties. Have you seen those cute booty bouquets? They are a great presentation for a practical present.
More stuff for the little people in your life. A customer at River Boutique and Yarn, a LYS in Wisconsin, knit this set for her granddaughter.
She used Ella Rae Classic Wool, which has a whopping 220 yards per skein and a wide range of colors. French knots were used to make the pretty little flowers. Such a simple finishing touch, but such a big impact.
It takes two skeins of Noro Silk Garden yarn.
Another beauty from River Boutique and Yarn is this version of the Ribbed Cardigan from the Fall/Winter 2013 issue of Debbie Bliss Magazine.
They used the Debbie Bliss Luxury Silk DK called for in the magazine, but added a twist by using a contrasting color ribbon.
I’ll wrap up with this knock out from Cynthia’s Too! Yarn & Gifts, a LYS in Michigan.
Call the store to have this exclusive pattern mailed to you. Better yet, order a kit so you know you have all the supplies to start right away.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
