So Faded

Lynda just finished a sweater for us and it is beautiful.

Pattern: So Faded (purchased on Ravelry)
This sweater sums up my ideal raglan pullover: worked from the top down, completely seamless, and just a little bit of texture to make it fit into a more modern wardrobe! Adjust the length of the sleeves and the body easily to fit your personal style!
Yarn: Merino Mia from Prism Yarns - we used an Eccentric Chevron Wrap kit.
  • Content: 100% Merino Super Wash  
  • Put-up: 173m / 190yds 
  • Gauge: 6sts = 1" (US#4); 6 1/2sts = 1" (US#3) 
Just what you have been waiting for from us: a work horse yarn that is beautifully twisted, soft, easy to knit, has a lovely sheen and takes our vibrant, clear colors extremely well 
I couldn't decide which picture I liked better so I added both.
The kits shown have 6 colours. Laura Bryant from Prism added a seventh colour to our kits for more yardage.
 The sample colour - more kits will be here later this month.
We have these kits in stock.

Jennifer came in yesterday with an armful of finished shawls (and one almost finished). These are all patterns from Ambah O'Brien.

Pattern: Bambara Wrap (pattern purchased on Ravelry)
Yarn: Hedgehog Sock

Jennifer still needs to block this and sew in the ends. I can't wait to see it finished.

Jennifer modified this so it wasn't quite as wide.

There are days when it is almost impossible to write a post. I haven't knit. We didn't receive a shipment. No new samples. No news to share. Then there are days when I have a lot of photos and information to share. Today is one of them. I'm saving a few things for tomorrow and Saturday.
