Sewing in ends

My cardigan is finished.  I even sewed all the ends in. Last night Sarah modelled it so that you can see it on a human body.

Here is the link to it on my Ravelry page

Sarah says that she gets to wear this at the Frolic.  Her necklace matches perfectly so she figures that makes it hers.

When I knit the cardigan I worked two rows from one ball and then two rows from another ball. I continued alternating throughout. By doing this you can't tell if there is a difference in the skeins-they are hand dyed and the colours can be noticeably different. The only place I didn't alternate rows was on the front band and ribbing of the body and sleeves.

Lynda's scarf is beautiful. The ladies in class last night all liked it and I had to make sure that no one put it in their bag on the way out.  :)

Yarn:  Shepherd Sock from Lorna's Laces
Pattern:  Linen Stitch Scarf from Churchmouse Yarns
When you see the colours in the kit you don't think they will work together but the finished scarf is stunning. This will definitely become my scarf.

Ms. Canada Post came in this morning with two boxes.  One was Namaste bags that we were out of and the other was from Offhand Designs.

Many more pretty bags. Supercalifragelistic is a beautiful fabric.  We have a Zhivago with long velvet strap in stock.

My baby cardigan in Liberty is finished.  I just need to sew in the ends and add buttons.  My two favourite jobs in the world!!

Thank you

The kits are $43.50. We will have lots of kits at the Knitter's Frolic next Saturday in Toronto if you are in the area.

What if we can't get there?.Can we order it from your store?

You can definitely order from the store. The kit isn't on the website but you can send me an email or call.

I only suggested the Frolic because we have the kit made up in at least 20 different colourways. We also have three different colourways knit up.

It is my favourite scarf and it took everything in me not to bring yarn home and start one tonight.

Hi Julie,
Will those kits be in the store next week as well? This scarf is causing a lot of buzz!

Kits will be in the store until Thursday. Friday I will be packing them for the Frolic and then they will be back in the store on Tuesday.
