New Clothes

We have another Elder Tree Shawl (pattern free on Ravelry) in the store. This is knit out of 5 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Steamer Trunk in the colour Northern Parula. Diana knit the shawl on 5.5mm needles. I love the colour and the shawl is huge. Perfect to snuggle up in on a cold evening.

I ran out this morning to do some shopping. My ladies needed new clothes. It's time to put away the summer clothes and dress my friends for fall. We have some clothes in the store but it's always nice to have something new for fall.
The shawl now has funky cords.

The 'no knitting' has become 'slow down on your knitting and work with a bit bigger needle'. I've pulled out Auburn Wave, knit in Mrs. Crosby Hat Box on 4.5mm needles. I just finished the fifth eyelet repeat.
I thought about taking a mannequin outside but it meant taking a sweater off someone that we just put a sweater on.

What is the pattern for the gorgeous wrap above the Groovy shawl? It's the black/purple/grey design and looks quite chunky and I love it!
