Been in the shop lately? If not in person, I'll still share with you what we're all working on! Afterall, don't knitters love to share what they've accomplished?? Heather (our shop manager) recently finished the Sockhead Hat above. She's been riding her bike to work lately, and wanted a bright hat for fall. Something so that she would be more easily seen by car drivers. I'd say this Fluormania hat qualifies, right?
Below, Rachael (she's your personal shopper/shipper) finished her Blooming Shawl in the new Lilt Sock from Black Trillium. She used the Ultramarine color. Fab, right?
I just stared a new pair of socks, leaving two single socks waiting. I couldn't help it. I'm a sucker for a good Opal colors (ok, I'm a sucker for umpteen good Opal colors). This one is from the new Rainforest 10 collection. It's color 8467. And I'm already eyeing several of the re-released Hundertwasser colors.
Heather walked in this morning wearing the awesomest sweater ever. Seriously, she rocks this thing, doesn't she? It's Ease, and she did do some mods (armholes, size) and she used the sale worsted we have in the sale section right now (MWP). She said she was surprised about the sizing and she had to end up knitting the XS size to fit her, which was smaller than she anticipated. She did alternate skeins on the body (since it's hand dyed) just to blend from one to another, but she didn't blend them through the whole sweater. The color is Allegiant.
Finally, this project wasn't knit by one of the team, but it was knit by one of you. The sweater pattern is Practically, and she knit it with no mods at all for one of her grand daughters. She used the MWP worsted weight yarn in the sale section in the Tempest color. Love it!
I'd love to show off some of your projects soon, and I'll be putting together a post in the near future with some of those. If you'd like to share, just e-mail photos and details to Allison at firstname.lastname@example.org .
