I knit Free Your Fade (pattern purchased on Ravelry) with Adelaide.
This shawl was created to be your favorite shawl pattern! Really relaxing garter stitch with engaging eyelet rows and endless color possibilities. It would be gorgeous knit up in one color, but you can just as easily use 20! I’ve extended the color melt sections for an even more cohesive fade, with easy instructions to add as many fade sections as you would like! The shawl is light weight and perfect year round when knit up in fingering weight yarn, but don’t let that stop you from knitting it up in any yarn weight you prefer to the size of your choosing!

We used four colours of Adelaide for the Bambara Wrap.

We received a small order of Addi Flexi-Flips today. The sizes we have are 2.5mm-5mm. We are still waiting on 2mm and 2.25mm.
Cast-on to an effortless new method of knitting socks, cuffs, hats, and many of other projects which are worked in the round, with the addi® FlexiFlips. Made specifically for North America, these specially designed 21cm circulars (3.5" tips with 1" cord) rest comfortably in the hand, and act as flexible double pointed needles. Easy to use, stitches are simply distributed over two needles, and then knit with the third - resulting in only two needle changes per row. 
Featuring the same dual-tip design as the popular addi® FlipStix, the FlexiFlips feature both an addi® Rocket tip and an addi Turbo® tip. You will always have the right needle, when you need it. Overly versatile, FlexiFlips also make great cable needles.

Alex is knitting mittens with the Flexi-Flips and says that they are great to knit with.

The needles have been added to the website. They are hard to get - don't delay.

Today is one of those days where I have lots to write about. Too much. Posts are written for the next three days.
Diana's new project is Sandscape (pattern purchased on Ravelry) using a fade kit from Autumn and Indigo. The shawl is knit from the top down. I read through the pattern with Diana and I would rate it as an advanced beginner. There are left and right slanting increases which leads me to this rating. They aren't hard to do once you know how. This is a great pattern for those who bought kits to knit a fade but never cast on.

Diana's finished shawl is scheduled for Thursday's post.
