Antler Hat

by Georgia on 11/13/14

I just love this hat! Making it was a blast, too, since cable knitting is my favorite kind of pattern. The Antler Hat pattern will definitely stay on my list for gifting because it's sized from baby to large adult.

Christmas is coming!

by Georgia on 11/07/14

This project is a happy combination of pattern and yarn. My first opportunity to use our new Ella Rae Classic Superwash has made me a fan. It is soft, warm, and wonderful to touch.

The way this yarn shows off cables makes it the perfect choice for this Antler Hat by Tin Can Knits. This pattern is perfect for everyone on your gift list because it is sized from baby to large adult.

The more I work on this hat the more I think it will wind up being for me. Guess I'm becoming a selfish knitter in my old age.  ;-)

Summer is sample time!

by Georgia on 06/05/14

I love summer!

We're receiving so many new yarns, and I want to make samples of everything! It's tough to know where to begin. They're all in the back of my mind clamoring, "Pick me! Pick me!"

Stay tuned for photos of the winner of the "Who Goes First" contest. Come by the shop this weekend if you want to "vote" in the "contest" or if you just can't wait for my photography to catch up!

My Turn

by Georgia on 04/23/14

It's my turn for a sweater. I've been working on items for Granddaughter and for the shop, so I'm really excited to be working on something for myself.

I enjoyed making the model for the shop with Plymouth's Cottonation that I decided to use it for my sweater. My colorway is Sea Isle. That shade of green is my favorite summer color.

Since I can't do anything "normal" for myself, I'm using Rainbow Top, a pattern designed for Tahki's Ripple. The unusual construction makes that transition a challenge, but I'm close friends with my calculator. So far it's working out fine -- with some fancy tweaking.

Take a look at the front/back before and after sewing the center seam.

Yep, that's the front/back.

The sleeves are on the needle so stay tuned....

Claddagh Ring Scarf/Shawl

by Georgia on 03/27/14

My new project is progressing nicely, and I'm really happy with it. Here's my progress so far. Please keep in mind that this is unblocked lace so it's not yet ready for prime time. ;-)

Headline: New Yarn Finds Perfect Project!

by Georgia on 03/13/14

I just unpacked two colors of Boboli Lace from Berroco and fell immediately in lust.
Roaming through Ravelry I found the perfect project in Claddagh Ring Shawl from Pam Jemelian. It's a scarf/shawl hybrid that can be worn a multitude of ways. Now I just need to decide which color!

Want to join in the fun? We can provide you with both pattern ($3.50) and yarn.

P.S. It's a one-skein project!

Knitted Math -- Not Math for Knitting

by Georgia on 02/25/14

Scientific American
has discovered knitting. Their article about knitting various mathematical constructs is fascinating. I'm no math genius, having successfully avoided calculus as if it were strep, but I think they are beautiful.

Be sure to click through to see all the photos. They are wondrous!
