Pattern: Library Vest from Churchmouse Yarns (pattern in the store or available on Ravelry)
Yarn: Zara from Filatura di Crosa
Sarah and Cathy stopped in for a visit and Sarah put the vest on so we could see how it looks. The buttons haven't been sewn on yet but Sarah thinks she would like it with no buttons. Or maybe just one button at the top.
With simple styling that lends itself to the classroom, workplace or weekend, this vest is so classic, so quintessential, it could become your uniform. The jumper length has a certain schoolgirl chic. The abridged, hip-length version is a flattering layer without the bulk of a sweater. Either way, it’s a nice little primer of techniques you’ll use again and again.
It was a fun day for visitors. Wannietta came in this afternoon - she just finished a shawl for the store.

Yarn: Hedgehog Fibres Sock
Full skein of Fly
Mini skeins - 1 each of Hush, Wish, Sorry not Sorry and Coral
Just one skein of Hedgehog Fibres Sock Yarn together with four Sock Minis will knit up into this cute little chevron scarf. Use your prized favourite speckle-tastic skein! Add a few pops of colour with the Minis, or use a second full skein for a slightly longer scarf. Speckles work well with a matching or a contrasting semi-solid.
