The week in review

Michelle started the hoodie from Sublime’s Organic Cotton DK book. The picture doesn’t do the yarn justice. It’s knitting up really soft and even.

Since I’m writing this a week later, she’s probably done. This is the skirt piece to a baby doll tunic she’s making for her step-daughter. The pattern alone has been a challenge and Michelle’s gone back to Suss several times with questions. They provided her with a rewrite of the pattern that made things much easier!
I just finished crocheting this shawl and it was a lot of fun. It’s from Doris Chan’s first book, Amazing Lace. I used Tahki Cotton Classic.

Isn’t this lace pattern subtle and beautiful? I was test knitting it for one of the women I work with, look for the pattern to be available at Knitting Central in a week or so.
Here’s a great scarf that Elizabeth is knitting with Artyarns Supermerino yarn. I love this yarn (and the other yarns that the company produces). The colors are really rich looking.
Mary’s on her way with new sock knit with the crazy cujo (koigu) yarn. I gave her a different crochet flower pattern to work with and she made two connected flowers that look really pretty. We have a winner!
Maureen joined us for the first time today. She hadn’t knit in years and it came right back to her. Before I knew it, she had knit about 8″ on her scarf. She came into the store a day later with it finished and got yarn for a new one. I imagine it’ll be well on it’s way to being completed by the end of this week.
