Pineapples

I was asked about the shawl that Lynn was wearing in the Knitters' Fair pictures. It's called Chevrione (purchased on Ravelry) knit in one Freia Shawl Ball
Chevrione is knit starting from the small end of the triangle to the end, where it is bound off using a picot bind off! It can be worked with lots of beads, a few beads, or no beads at all. Chevrione was specifically designed to use gradients, as the wave pattern shows beautifully with the gradient. This pattern includes both full written and charted instructions, and can easily be modified for size by working extra repeats of Chart B, or omitting repeats of Chart B.
It would look amazing in a mini skein kit

I'm happy to introduce the newest scent from Soak. This should be in the store later this week. I can't wait to try it!


Be a pineapple. Stand Tall, wearing a lily filled crown, and always be sweet on the inside.
This exotic new scent has sparkling top notes of sweet orange are fused with the soothing floral scent of Lilies. Tropical pineapple, orchid and melon dance through the heart; and evolve into a sophisticated dry down of sheer musk.
We will have large bottles (375 mL and will do 75 washes) and small bottles (90 mL and will do 18 washes).
Soak is ideal for raw fibers, spinning, dyeing – and for the entire fiber lifecycle. Use it to care for cashmere, wool, cotton and other delicate knits.

It's time for football, baseball and knitting. I finished the first ball of Hitchhiker last night. Maybe I can through most of the second ball tonight.
