Knitter's Tote

We have a new yarn from Noro. Meet Ito. Each ball has 32 different colours in it. The colour changes are quicker than most other Noro yarns. There are 400m (437 yards) on a ball.

The yarn is worsted weight and one ball will make this cowl. You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry or it is free in the store with the purchase of the yarn.

Yoko Hatta’s poncho-like wrap--made up of two rectangles worked in a basic eyelet chevron pattern-is the perfect complement to fall in the warm hues of Ito colorway #12. Garter stitch borders the lower edge and one side edge, contributing to the scalloped lower hem. The front and back are seamed on the non-garter edge and the top edges, creating an opening for the neck.
You can purchase this pattern on Ravelry.

For this lap blanket designed by Christine Lipscomb, separate triangle motifs are crocheted in the round using four colorways of Ito: 1,6,8 and 10. Work double crochet into only the back loop each stitch to create a ridge on the right side. The triangles are then joined with a crochet slip stitch on the right side, again forming a ridge and creating the patchwork effect.
Purchase the pattern on Ravelry.  This looks like a really fun crochet project.

We are going to have a new bag from Namaste next week. Meet the Knitter's Tote.
Our Knitter's Tote Bag was mindfully designed for those who need to make sure they have all their essentials. With plenty of room for your cardigan, your latest reading book or planner, and several knitting projects, the Tote is ideal for those who want to carry all their everyday belongings. Crafted from vegan leather and including knitting specific features like our Lotus Yarn Feeder (turns your handbag into a yarn bowl), a key leash (doubles as a tape-measure), and a decorative tassel (equipped with an emergency stitch marker), the Namaste Knitter's Tote is designed to help you find Knitting Nirvana wherever you are.

  • Designed Specifically for Knitters - Sturdy Vegan Leather - Lots of Pockets - BPA & PVC-Free
  • Comfortably fits the Namaste Small, Medium, Large, or X-Large Oh Snap Pouch (not included)
  • 1 interior zipper-wallet pocket, 1 pocket divider with 7 snaps (a built in Oh Snap project pouch!), 1 water bottle caddy
  • 1 large front exterior pocket with magnet closure, 1 large back zippered pocket for your phone

 The Tote can hold a lot.

Sometimes there is too much action in the store for me to think and write so I left work a bit early and went home to work on a newsletter. I had one almost finished but had to rewrite part of it. I highlighted Dream State from Spincycle Yarns. Our order sold out so fast that there was no point keeping it in the newsletter.

We have a lot of Dream State and Dyed in the Wool on order. A lot. 160 skeins of each yarn. I hope we will be receiving more soon.

GarnStories has left Germany and is making it's way to us. I am tracking the box and my guess is another week.

I've spent enough time in front of the computer today so it's time to pick up my needles. The end is near on Free Your Fade. One and half more sections.
