New Lace Knitting

New Lace Knitting is a striking collection of 19 garment and accessory designs intended to reawaken your love of traditional lace knitting by using classic stitch patterns in fresh ways. Whether you’re creating shawls, cardigans, pullovers, or wraps, these projects show you the incredible versatility of lace: how stitch patterns change in different weights of yarn, how you can use that stitch pattern sparingly or for your whole project, and how little knitterly details make a lace project truly elegant, whether it is for every day or special occasion.
We have a new book in the store and the designs are amazing.

See all the designs on Ravelry... 
The October Dream Club yarn will be arriving next week. Dream in Color is holding it to ship with yarn for the Fleece Festival.
This month we have two patterns for you. Both are fingerless mitts. The knitted version “En Plein Air” designed by Jimmy Martinez, features a strap with a button for decoration and a nice close fit, something Monet would have worn while painting “en plein air” (outdoors) on a chilly day! The crocheted version, “Water Lillies” designed by Susan Sellers, features a unique chain foundation and decorative textural stitches that evoke Monet’s famous painting of the same name
The yarn is Everlasting DK, 100% superwash merino wool. 250m (275 yards) on a 100gram skein. If you aren't into fingerless gloves, the yarn would work great for the Squish Me Cap (pattern purchased on Ravelry).
Beth loves the Squish Me Cap and has knit in many times. This one is in Zara Print Melange from Filatura Di Crosa. I have a feeling that she will want a skein of the Dream Club yarn to make another one.

The rain isn't stopping in Myrtle Beach. We talked to Lisa this morning and they ate Kraft Dinner and potatoes for breakfast. There isn't a lot of food left in the house. Another homeowner in the complex stopped in to check on them this morning and told them that the road by our house is the worst. If they walk to my parents, they can take my parents car out to the store. Lisa was quite excited. I'm not sure if it was food or the fact that the wine is running out. Thank goodness we have lots of games in our house so they've been amused for the past few days.
