Sonia's Butterfly Bag

One of Sonia's Art Handbags is on its way to Vancouver.  Two of her gorgeous handbags are still available at Great Balls of Wool.  Every one is so special and so artistic!

Best Sweater This Week

Revisiting this sweater as we're all proud of this amazing creation by a not-that-experienced a knitter.  And, she not only knit it ALL by herself, she designed the bears, graphed and everything.  Roving yarn and interesting colours, don't you think?
Well done!

Sunset Sweater special is this? Don't you think it looks like a Powell River sunset?
Brigitte used one ball of Noro Sock yarn to create the center panels and shoulders of this wonderful garment. Notice front is worked differently from the back. Love the way the Noro centre pieces stand out.  We're breathless, Brigitte! We have so many talented knitters here.

Dee's Finished Bunting Bag

Dee has finished her bunting bag and hat...Phew! From all of us! 
We love it... 
Dee used Malabrigo yarn and Diamond Select Carefree Chunky which are working happily together in this piece.  Interesting choice of buttons too.  Her grandbaby-to-be will be happy to pop-out and pop- in to this cozy bunting bag.

Beautiful Bear Sweater

It's been a busy summer for bears and bear knitting!  A precious son will be the recipient of this mummy designed and knit Cowichan style sweater.  We love the colour choices and design.  Congrats!

Deinise's Plum Perfect Top

Behold Deinise's fine knitting on this intricate Interweave pattern.  Notice the raised design around the neck.  The front is purl in stocking stitch, and the back is knit.  Well put together shoulder seams too--and check out the lovely bottom edge.  Great knitting, Deinise! The yarn used was Aslan Trends Artesanal, cotton, alpaca and nylon.
