It's Now Or Never

Well, this won't last long! Mohair Special. Hurry in and get some! Exquisite mohair and mohair/kid silk...and more.  These would be a good choice for the workshops with Jude Skeers in October. Or for your own project now.
It's a special deal, and quantities you see are what there is...and no more!

Sylvie's Stupendous Slippers

Sylvie used one strand of Sirdar Fresco, a nylon bumpy yarn, to reinforce and make the soles non-slip.  Isn't she talented! OMG gorgeous, wouldn't you say??

Sylvie said "The 1st pair was for my daughter on Christmas, the 2nd pair was for my Step Mom's birthday, the 3rd pair was for my Mom's Birthday, the 4th pair was for my girlfriend who bought the pattern to make these slippers, and finally the 5th pair was for me with some of the left over wool, which I love wearing."

And so nicely photographed, Sylvie!

And The Point Is?

Roisin's latest pattern "What's the Point?" Poncho
(There is a point but you have to get to the end of the pattern for 'it')
Knit sideways, a tidy fit, arms free, so easy to get in and out of car, find your phone, hang on to bags...
Join us on Fridays for $10 drop in classes and make this!

OR get the pattern free with yarn purchase.

Laura's Cardy

Laura finished this perfect shorty sleeve cardy in Galway Lima.  This style really shows off the colours in the yarn.  Nice work!

Maria's Tank

Maria strutting her stuff in her latest creation. With a few suggestions from Roisin she was off and running.  Believe it or not, she used an acrylic/polyester sock yarn 'Hot Socks Portofino' by Grundl.  The top only used two and a bit 100 gr balls.  Looks fantastic, summery and cool! 

Pat's Perfectly Turquoise Sweater

Pat's great bamboo started as a shorter sweater and kinda grew. It looks great and is a perfect colour for Pat and summer wear.  She says the bamboo is heavier than it looks.

Sock Monkey Pants - On

Ask and we shall receive! Dee sent us a photo of Ev wearing his pants.

Justine's Texada Time Wrap

Roisin's Grand-Niece Justine in her newly acquired Texada Time Wrap to show off for her friends.  "Does Grandma know what kind of leaf this looks like?  Has anyone told her?"
She knows, Justine, she knows. 

Busy Hillary

Hillary has been very busy.  She has made this cute sweater, knit top down using up 100% wool left overs. Love the special look she achieved on the sleeves.....totally cool Hillary!

Also....Hillary is now our expert on Lundie Hoodies.  This is the first one knit with this vibrant red Chunky Marble. It looks great.
