Roisin's latest, a Shetland Hap*. The pattern is being written at this very moment (by Roisin...and honestly, "this very moment" was a while ago so may be done already). Sorry, this gorgeous yarn is ALL GONE, but you can knit it with anything. Perfect for those cold backs of necks and shoulders. There's a longer story, stay tuned. *A hap is a wrap or shawl. Indeed, theword common to Scottish (including Shetland) and Northern English dialects, means to wrap, to cover, or conceal. And definitely to keep warm.
It's the long weekend! A reminder that the store will be closed on Monday (and Sunday as usual) but open again on Tuesday at 11am. If the weather has you thinking about indoor activities, GBOW is open today until 4. A hat would be a good project for the weekend. This is Brandon's first knitting project - we're impressed! Knit with Galway Chunky and
following Roisin's directions (no pattern) he quickly knit this to his specific
taste. Looking into our crystal ball we see many brilliant projects in his
future knitting life!
Ruth is showing off what/how to do with leftover yarns. This totally fashionable baby cardigan shows off different yarns and stitches. We've challenged Ruth to do it again, but she can't until she has more left-over bits and pieces. All yarns were Sirdar Baby Snuggly, and Baby Crofter, oh, and some Debbie Bliss baby too.
Elly's great-granddaughter will be starting grade 1 in style with these self-striping Lana
Grossa knee highs. Her next pair is on the needles, and will be in fluorescent yarn. Roisin says Elly can knit a pair a minute, or so it seems.
Nice work, nice choice. G-Grandaughter will be proud!
