Powder and Dust

Lace like little cat paw prints on dust and a lovely neutral, fading color palette make this shawl perfect for every knitter. Easy triangle shape and squishy garter stitch are relaxing to knit, but the lace and the fade add more interest to your shawl. 
Choose your favorite 3-color fade and cast on!
Veera Valimaki has a new pattern out called Powder and Dust. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry. Diana is going to knit it for me using Singles from Autumn and Indigo. Beige, brown and grey. A bit boring but it will match a new pair of shoes that I have. And every shawl I own is bright so something a bit more subdued won't be a bad thing.

While we are on the subject of Autumn and Indigo, in about 4 weeks we are going to have more Comfort Fade Cardi kits. I have also ordered individual skeins of DK. The yarn is beautiful to knit with. There will be sweater lots of these colours.

We have a basket in the store full of pretty colours. The yarn is perfect for hats, mitts and shawls. Sweaters too of course.

Campside (a free pattern) would look amazing in this yarn.

Mr. Canpar brought a box today and we have a brand new colour of Fino from Manos del Uruguay.

The Fino Circle Scarf is a free pattern that takes two skeins.

I love my Building Blocks Shawl.

A customer just brought this to my attention.
