weather dilemmas

What to wear? I have made some missteps in the last few weeks.  Today I am wearing the woolies when lighter fair is clearly indicated by the increasing sunshine.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring. In the uncertain days to come we might find ourselves going between extremes.

This new shipment of Berroco which included Peruvia Quick (on the right) and Vintage Chunky (on the left) are becoming favored yarns here for their quick-knit results and price points – $11 and $9 respectively.
The Peruvia is what made this marvelous jacket ↓ what it is.  A good alternative for the coldish days that may still descend around us (it is still March after all) and will certainly return.

The Geordie pattern by Norah Gaughan can be found in her Volume 9 which we have stocked at the Knit Cafe.  We also have Norah’s latest book, Volume 10 with her spring collection of flowy open cardigans, and lacy knits.

This week we have also received some Dream in Color Classy.  Pictured here: Fierce Scarlet, Aqua Jet, Happy Forest, Grey Tabby, Amethyst Ink. This worsted, superwash yarn, $20 per skein, inspired our Sexy Shrug pattern.  A good shoulder warmer for the spring days and evenings ahead of us. See these happy shrug wearers!  The Judy is wearing a Dream in Color Classy version in Vino Veritas.  Edie and Aurelie look amazing in their own summer- ready colour choices.

If you have never knitted lace before, but would like to make your own version of the Sexy Shrug, please do not despair.  We are offering a class to introduce lace-making techniques and the project knitted in class is the very same Sexy Shrug.

      That may well be true, although it is a fast knit due to the chunky yarn, but if so- it will sure to be ready for the fall.
