Fun day of visitors

Lynda sent a box this week - what a great vest.

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.
I had to check under Sarah's coat when she left. I was afraid that the vest was going home with her - it fit her perfectly.

It was a fun day for visitors. Wannietta came in this afternoon - she just finished a shawl for the store.
Pattern: Born Trippy (free on Ravelry)
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.

Hedgehog has new colours. Meet Hula Hoop. They're on order and I'm hoping they'll be here sometime in March.

I'm not sure if she realizes that she's a dog.

Love the vest. I'm sure my daughter would love it,too. Your pup is definitely a "people" in dog's clothing. I know all three of ours believe that. ;)
