Frabjously Faded

Frabjously Faded is a new free pattern from Frabjous Fibers.
Dip your toes into the fading waters with this simple but stunning shawl. The asymmetrical triangle is like a wave crashing, with easy eyelet lace “breakers” throughout. A perfect “intro to fade” pattern—it’s pleasing, quickly knitted and will have you wanting to make multiple versions; mixing and matching colors to make it your own. 
Designed with Wonderland Yarns 8-pack of Mini-skeins in Mary Ann sock (118 yards per 1-oz skein, 940 yards total), and shown in colorway Birds & Beasts.
I ordered the yarn at TNNA and we should see it by the end of the month. Get your pattern downloaded and be ready to have some fun.

Here are a few of the colourways that I saw at TNNA.

My blocking elf stopped by today. Time Trades will be in the store on Wednesday. Now back to my Comfort Fade Cardi.

We have been working on our booth for The Knitters' Fair. What are we taking???
The Shift (pattern purchased on Ravelry) is ready to go. Kits are made in lots of different colour options.

We made kits for Chimera this afternoon that aren't quite as bright as the sample. The colours of my sample will be in the shipment from Frabjous Fibers and should be here in time for the show.

Machnamh is another sample that we received from The Fibre Co. It is knit in Arranmore and will be joining us in Kitchener.
Machnamh (pronounced Macnah) is the Irish word for reflection, which seemed an appropriate name for this sleeveless waistcoat/vest since it is worked in stocking stitch on one section and reverse stocking stitch on the other – one reflecting the other. 
One size fits most with a relaxed fit on smaller sizes and more close fitting when fastened on larger sizes. For more overlap or a more relaxed fit simply cast on 4 extra stitches at beginning and end of the cast on row to give 2 inches extra front wrap ensuring armholes remain centered. 
We have a lot of finished garments to display. So many that one of my jobs on Monday is to get more mannequins.
