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.
It's been awhile but we've all been knitting feverishly to get new models for you to see. Another yarn has arrived; Berroco Millefiori. This is a blend yarn that have beautiful bold color changes. We also have the supporting pattern book #377 that has two great quick to knit patterns.
and here's one of the patterns, Kaleen
As soon as we have spare knitting needles we'll tackle knitting this too.
Have a great Fourth of July weekend. We're doing a

New items are arriving all the time. Here is a great vacation beach project to get ready for this coming fall. From Berroco using Ultra Alpaca you can knit this Teeter Totter Shawl quickly and be ready for that first chilly evening.
To make life easy for you we've kitted this project and included the Portfolio 2 pattern book that has more great patterns.
