Fabulous Cottons On Sale Now!

End of summer (sorry, we didn't make it go away) Cotton Sale on-going! Super deals.

Stock up for your winter knitting....after all the holiday projects are done, and the rainy season is upon us, then is the time to look at patterns (in between the seed catalogues) and dream up summer projects to work on, in lovely cottons!

Beary Beary Nice

I know, I know....we've showed you this sweater twice before, but isn't it great?! And NOW is on its way to be flaunted in Toronto, or was it New York?  You'll never see it again. Oh, well, it will have an admiring audience where ever it goes.  We love the colours, bears and all of it which came together so well.  Congrats to the talented knitter/designer! (I want one too...bears will be fine, thanks).

We Love Knitting

Petra (L) and Vicki have embarked on new projects.  Petra's last "grandson sweater" was such a hit that Mum and Dad want sweaters too! Petra's using Bravo Mezzo chunky in great colours for Mum's one.  

Circular Shawl Class In Session

Roisin, Myrt and Maria engrossed in Circular Shawl class.  Jude Skeer's pattern is a popular one with locals and those-from-awayers too.

Claire's Cables

We showed you photos of Claire's nice poncho last week, but here's a photo in which you can see the pattern better in these ones.  The cables show up nicely.

A reminder of what it looks like on Claire.

Lori's Cabled Jacket

Another great Knit-by-Lori item...using Hayfield Baby Changes (we showed you her amazing big person sweater a few posts ago that this little one is on top of). Some lucky small person is going to look smashing in this cute cabled hoody jacket. Lori is skilled in matching the right yarn to the right pattern--as you can see.

Sheryl's Baby Jacket

Sheryl attended our Jude Skeers baby jacket class - she is a frequent visitor to Powell River and is able to time it so she can get the instruction she needs for the next step.  The jacket is almost finished in these pics. Sheryl used Diamond Superwash Aran and Rustic Superwash variegated for the colour changes. Works well - and congrats Sheryl!

More Skeers' Shawls Underway

Myrt and Joannie are both starting on a Jude Skeers Circular Shawl - a very popular pattern and project around here. These are (obviously) works-in-progress, so check back for that progress!
