A few of the projects that have caught my eye this week.

Contact the stores mentioned for more details and supplies!

Earlier this week I showed you a picture of the Inspira Cowl that our yarn rep Cherry knit using Louia Harding Amitola yarn.

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!

She used Louisa Harding Amitola yarn. Find the pattern on Ravelry.

Love this Clapochet, a crocheted version of the famous Clapotis scarf.

Speaking of Amitola yarn, I love this version of the Clapochet scarf from Sitting Knitting (Facebook link), a LYS in the UK.

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!

How beautiful is this crocheted scarf a Purls of Wisdome customer made?

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 is the Thistle Stitch Scarf. She used Juniper Moon Farm Findley yarn.

Exclusive pattern at Kitnit Fine

Another great project using Juniper Moon Farm yarn, this time Moonshine, is this textured scarf at Kitnit Fine, a LYS in Pennsylvania.

This scarf would be good for the man in your life. It’s their exclusive pattern, so contact the store for kit details.

Two skeins of Araucania Nuble were used for this crocheted cowl.

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.

Needlework Unlimited uses leftover sock yarn to make booties.

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.

Finishing touches add flair!

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.

Original design by Lighthouse Fibers

Back to cowls, I love the Woodland Cowl from Lighthouse Fibers, a local yarn store in Michigan. They made it a free pattern on Ravelry! Remember to thank them by calling them to order supplies.

It takes two skeins of Noro Silk Garden yarn.

River Boutique and Yarn made a bold ribbon selection.

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.

Exclusive pattern at Cynthia's Too!

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.

The faux fur trim is the beautiful new Louisa Harding yarn “Luzia“, while the body of the wrap is a silk/mohair blend such as Debbie Bliss Angel.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
