Why should our wee ones get all the treats for Halloween? Treat yourself to something awesome at SSYC, and a great deal too.
You might have snagged one of the Trio sets at 35% off a couple days ago. Now you can also grab some single skeins (50 grams each) of this same Fleece Artist Merino DK at 30% off! I have a 10 colors for you in the Sale Section. These can be used for oh-so-many projects from baby hats from full-sized sweaters. At just $7 a skein, I'm betting you'll find many uses for these.
Here are the ideas that I'm considering for my skeins.
Honey Cowl, two or more skeins (I like Salt Spray and Pumpkin for this)
The Age of Brass and Steam, two skeins (I like Stardust and Brew for this)
A Grey Loop would rock three or four skeins in any color.
Boneyard Shawl, six skeins (maybe Beet. Or Beet and Tourmaline, or Nightshade and Pumpkin)
OMG Adorable Helena baby sweater. Photo with permission of designer Alison Green, with photographer Cheryl Francis. Requires four to six skeins; Salt Spray, Cactus Flower and Beach House would all be adorable and pale enough to really show off the pattern nicely.
Want a baby blanket that doesn't break the bank? Eight skeins would make a nice Leafy Baby Blanket.
How about a cardigan? Rachael (on the right) wore her Effortless Cardigan today to work (yes, we are dressed for Halloween!), and you could knit a gorgeous one with eight or more skeins.
And with leftover partial skeins, you could have a bunch of Basic Baby Hats at the ready for those special new ones in our lives.
We are nearing the end of 2013, so I think this is the last 35th-Anniversary-Celebratory-Deal from Fleece Artist. I've carried Kathryn-and-team's lovely work since the beginning (so 8.5 years) and I look foward to working with them for many more!
