Oregon Cardigan Finished!

I finally finished my Alice Starmore Oregon Cardigan and I am very happy with the finished sweater. The lacy vest is another item I have completed. It is made out of Beaded Silk Rhapsody . Come by to see the sample. I am also working on Mr GreenJeans, a pattern by Amy Swenson. The two concurrent Fair Isle Classes that are being taught by Cindy Wasner of Norsk Needlework are going well and soon I should have some pictures of the sweaters that are being knit.

New Sample

I have several new yarns in stock. This sample was done with Teseo by yarns. The yarn is a chunky weight of 55% wool and 45% microfiber
The pattern is the free cropped overlay pattern from episode 104 of knitting daily tv. Very fast to knit and just the sort of wrap to throw on to go out to the store. Come by the store to see and feel it.

Current Projects

I am currently working on several projects. The brown yarn is the Lotus Blossom Tank in Madil Eden Bamboo yarn, and the pink yarn is the Lightening Lace Jacket out of Needful Yarn's Disco. I am continuing to work on my Oregon Cardigan and have one sleeve almost completed and I am halfway through my Hanne Falkenberg's Promenade Shawl.

Thursday's sit and knit has become very popular and a fun place to see what everyone is working on. August's upcoming Fair Isle class was so popular, that we had to add another class in September. If you are still interested we have 1 spot left in the class.

Knotty Wrap Top

Stop by and see the Knotty Wrap Top designed by Crissy Gardiner. Done in DK weight yarn, it is the perfect summer top. Very flattering for most figures, and fun to knit. In sizes XS to 6X.

Seashore Felted Bag

Quick picture of the felted bag class that will be coming up in July. It is a bag done in double knit with a seashore theme (since I live on the Oregon Coast). I am finishing up the straps then it will be felted.

We are still in the midst of Oregon unshine right now--today it is lightly raining-- but when the sun does shine it is beautiful out here on the coast.

Adult Surprise Jacket Done

I finally finished Elizabeth Zimmerman's adult surprise jacket. I am currently working on a Hanne Falkenberg design called Promendade. It is a shaped shawl and done only in garter stitch. My Oregon cardi is coming along nicely. It is cut and I am currently working on 1 sleeve.

Great American Afghan

I am gearing up for the Great American Afghan Knit-a-long that will start on Sat March 8. Stop by to see the first square that we will be doing. Each square teaches different techniques and they are fun to do. The square on the left is block #3 knit from Cascade 220 yarn.

I will also be hosting a Knit Kimono Trunk show from March 31 through April 5 and a Hanne Falkenburg trunk show from April 18 through April 26.

New Year

I haven't posted for awhile because of a busy holiday season. I am still knitting away, trying to finish the Adult Surprise Jacket from Elizabeth Zimmerman. I am using a beautiful soft hand dyed worsted weight yarn called Peru from Blue Moon Fibers. It is 50% Alpaca, 30% merino and 20% silk.
I am still knitting on my Oregon Cardigan and have gotten past the armholes. As you can see it is coming along very nicely. Too many projects and not enough time to knit for the store and also for myself.
I also finished a vest for my husband that I haven't taken a picture of yet, but will post it as soon as I do.
