Miruh's Cardie

Miruh showing off her beautiful finished organic cotton cardie. Her signature stitch is the feather and fan!  Miruh made some adjustments to this pattern--as in, turned it from a pullover into a cardigan--and it fits really well.She says it feels cozy even though it's cotton.  Organic probably has a lot to do with that.

Jacket For The Salmon

Olga is strutting her stuff!  Roisin's latest creation, and her contribution to the live auction at the Pacific Salmon Foundation dinner on October 24 (which is sold out). .  She's calling it Coast Couture Combo Jacket.  Honouring the thousands of years of Coast Salish wool workers (and salmon protectors) in this region,  the jacket is a Jude Skeers design and Roisin's own choices in wool and patterns. Very Special!

Tweedy Bum Warmer

Roisin used Galway Highland Heather 100% wool for this this bum warmer or skirt, It knits up like tweed and could also be reversible.  Modelled by Amy...well, a section of Amy!

Petra's Socks

Petra's granddaughter will be showing off her knee-highs right about now.  I'm sure all her friends are jealous.
 Another cozy pair of socks by Petra, using Regia yarn. (Yes, I know there's only one sock in the photo but trust me, there are two). Perfect 'guy' socks, aren't they?
