Roisin's Clamshell Shell

Clamshell. A new design and pattern from Roisin (with contributions by Brenda)..a knitted Art piece inspired by ocean lapping on the sand at Savary Island.
Knit with cotton blend, and big needles. Great for summer wear. I think it would be lovely for summer wedding wear.

Lis's Shawl

Lis took 2 balls of Zauberball to knit this unique design shawl. We believe it's from a book in Powell River Public Library.  It's a garter stitch and dropped stitch kinda pattern. It works well--and this shawl photo even has a head!

Carmel's Poncho

Carmel knit this cozy poncho for her daughter Monica, using Galway 100% wool, chunky and one strand of mohair to create this gorgeous garment.

Brenda's Wild Shawl

Brenda's wild side is showing in this creation.  She used Roisin's Chantal Shawl Pattern and bits and pieces of Noro and similar yarn.  Roisin thinks it looks more like a Kaffe Fassett design, especially on the back.   Way to go, Brenda!  Looking forward to more wildness!

Roisin's Hunter Cowl

Oh my, this is gorgeous!
Olga modeling the "Hunter Cowl". Roisin knit this with 100% merino and is donating it to the Sliammon Canoe Trip Raffle.  Get yourself a few tickets if you're interested.  Retail value is $300.00. There's approximately 50 hrs of knitting in this (and that is Roisin's knitting speed!), It has elk horn buttons, and the style is based on the Hunger Games.
Hmmm, where are the raffle tickets available? I don't know but will update when I do.

Patti's Afghan

Patti proudly displaying her almost finished afghan.  She had one of the GREAT BIG BALLS of Mohair, in the pinky whitish shades and it hadn't worked out for a few projects she'd started on.  Brenda suggested using Drops Big Delight in the variegated pink shades and it's working perfectly.  Patti believes she's still going to have mohair left at the end of this.  The curse of the BIG BALL!

Hunter's Lundie

Hunter, our youngest Loopy Lounger (and Poster Boy), was quite happy to lounge around last Friday in his freshly finished "Lundie Hoodie".  Mum just took it off the needles and put it on him, fits perfectly and even though the weather was warm there were NO complaints (Brooklyn and Owen take note)   Congrats Hunter on choosing such an accomplished Mum. We foresee many more woolly creations in your future.

Petra's Shawls

Here are two beautiful shawls knit by headless Petra.  The pink and blue one combines many yarns and patterns, it's her specialty pattern at this moment.  Very soft and cuddly.
The second one is Malabrigo,(of course) and features a drop stitch pattern in one section. Petra is experimenting with different stitch patterns and they're all working!  Lovely work,
