New Shawl Pins

We have two new colours of Liberty from Classic Elite
78122 Wave
78123 Paradiso

Many of you know that Liberty is one of my favourite yarns. A self-striping yarn always makes you knit faster :) You need to see what the next colour is going to be.
Liberty Wool is a super-soft, washable wool available in solid and printed colors. This yarn's balanced twist will make all stitch combinations pop.
With all the great qualities of wool and the ease of machine washability, Liberty Wool knits at a gauge that suits many designs and is ideal for children's pieces as well as those for adults.
It's not too early to start your fall knitting. Here are two of our favourite sweaters knit in Liberty.

Simple Sweater with Pockets (purchase on Ravelry)
One sweater concept designed with two simple options: cardigan or pullover. Each raglan sweater has garter stitch trim, front pockets and ¾ length sleeves, and is worked from the bottom up.
The Magic Carpet Pullover (pattern purchased on Ravelry)
A relaxed fit pullover with buttons closing the garter stitch side panels and cuffs.
More JUL shawl pins arrived this morning.

The Marrakech Shawl pin exploits a new one-piece concept that eliminates parts that can get lost.  The ornamental tail underneath goes down through the layers of knitwear / crochetwear and back up, capturing fabric and fiber, which is then held in place by the snug relationship between the ornamental fan on top and the end of the gorgeous tail.  This amazing piece has ornament on every side and from every angle, inspired by the fabulous architecture of Marrakech.

White bronze is a warm white metal, with just the barest blush of gold.  Over time it will patina like silver will but may be kept bright with a polishing cloth.  String of Silver Beads was meant to evoke cascades of water droplets created by waves breaking, as you see in Japanese seascape paintings.

The last few colours of Hedgehog.
Salty Tales

The weather is beautiful today - there could be some knitting on the back deck tonight.
