  • Easter Basket

    Easter Knits book by Arne &Carlos and my knitted easter egg waiting to be stuffed.


    Easter is just around the corner and there are so many cute decorating and gift ideas for this fun and colorful holiday.  I started knitting Easter eggs using the patterns from the Easter Knits book by Arne & Carlos and Brown Sheep Lanaloft Sport yarn.  The next egg I knit I will use a fingering weight yarn, maybe Brown Sheep Naturespun, Jamieson Spindrift, or Elemental Affects.  Easter Knits has more pattern motifs for knitted eggs as well as a pattern for a bunny and chicken.  Arne and Carlos are designers from Norway and will be in Seattle in October for the 2014 Nordic Knitting Conference.


    Ravelry is also full of great Easter knits, here are a few of my favorites.

    1. Bunny Girl in a Dotty Dress by Julie Williams (She has more adorable bunny patterns too!)

    2.Bunny Bookmark by Ala Ela

    3. Bunny Beret by Hannah Fettig

    4. Vintage Rabbit  and Spring Rabbit by Sara Elizabeth Kellner

    5. Baby Lamb Cuffs by Tiny Owl Knits



    Don't forget to swing by the shop for some Easter goodies like our kids learn to knit kits, books and baskets.


  • Spring Break Knitting

    Paula, Beth and I were showing each other our spring break projects and I'd love to share them with you.  


    Paula has designed her own beautiful spring shawl using YOTH Yarns Little Brother.


    Beth just took Veronika's lace knitting class and is busy working on her Cedar Grove Shawl by Judy Marples using Cascade Yarns Eco Wool.


    I finally finished my Tag Team Sweater, Lila, (pictures soon!) so I can continue to work on my Sundottir Sweater by Dianna Walla for Brooklyn Tweed.  I am using the last skeins we had of Elsawool but am thinking of casting on for another Sundottir using Imperial Yarn Erin or Columbia 2-ply.


    Whether you're heading out of town or having a stay-cation don't forget your knitting.  What are you working on this spring break?  We would love to hear from you!

  • Ribbon XL

    Ribbon XL is here!  I had fun looking all over Pinterest for ideas on what to make with this recycled cotton yarn.  

    While I was home sick last week, Tif crocheted a cover for my Grandma's antique milking stool using Ribbon XL.  How great it was to walk in the shop after being gone for a couple days and see this!  Thank you, Tif!
