8 September 2016

We've been knitting up a storm trying to get more models finished for you to see. When they're on a needle and scrunched up they just don't look as nice and a finished, blocked piece of knitting.

We just got in a new yarn/kit from Trendsetter. This is an elegant wrap called Zig Zag Wrap and uses neutral colors of Lana Grossa Cool Wool. This wrap is easy to knit and will go with anything in your wardrobe.

I started knitting the Teeter Totter Shawl to see how it is formed. From the picture it was hard to see how they were working the colors. I have to say, it is interesting to knit and the start of the wrap it clever. To remind you, here's what it looks like.


Using Berroco Ultra Alpaca, this is going to be fun to knit.

and here's one of the patterns, Kaleen


As soon as we have spare knitting needles we'll tackle knitting this too.

Some of the new fall products have started to arrive. The first is a quick to knit shawl that changes colors and 'marls' all in one ball of yarn. This is Transitions by Trendsetter Yarns.

Here are the colors:

And here is the free pattern:
