Getting Ready for the Frolic

Mr. Canada Post brought in a box from Lynda this morning. She just finished two amazing shawls. It's 'we need new samples for the Frolic' time of year so my knitters are very busy right now.
Pattern: Russian Hills (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: 2 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box in the colour Hot Pimiento
This edging is worked first and goes so quickly because of its visible lace patterning. Later on, we pick up for the body and use garter and stockinette as a blank slate to wear around the body, letting the lace do the talking! 
Inside the pattern you will find the Chart and Written Instructions, notes on how to modify the shawl to your yardage and a comprehensive abbreviation list to ensure you don’t get lost in Russian Hills.

Pattern: Rumple Scarf (purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: 4 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Hat Box
Sample: 2 skeins Wild Huckleberry and 2 skeins Squid Ink

We added more stitches to our scarf - 60 to be exact. I knew that we had extra yarn so why not make the shawl longer?
A scarf/wrap hybrid that can be draped around your neck or used to cover your shoulders. Designed to use 2 skeins of luxury sport-weight yarn, but very easily modified to use up any scraps you have laying about :)

Beth finished a cowl on the weekend.

Pattern: Sanibel Cowl (free from Classic Elite)
Yarn: 2 balls of Santorini 
Colour: 2130 Confetti

Beth is stopping in the store on her way home from work to pick out more colours of Santorini. Her next project is going to combine three or four colours in a scarf.

Here is a better picture of Ley Lines so far. I really need to get a mannequin at home.

Thanks! I'm working on a cardigan, Milonga, with Mrs. Crosby' s, Steamer Trunk in Spicy Habanero. I love the yarn, the color and the pattern. Did Lynda enjoy working with these yarns? Maybe you can write a little about her thoughts on these newer yarns.
