It’s been a while since I posted, and there’s so much to talk about and show you that I don’t even know how to start. I want to show you customer projects from this summer, but I also want to show you new yarns that have been coming in, and I also just want to ramble on about this and that.
I’ll start with some customer projects today:
Susie Drake took Karen’s Eternal Optimist class this summer and brought in her completed scarf to show. The color is stunning and the beads are beautiful accents:
Mary Ellen Leidy took Karen’s Modern Wrapper Fine class in the spring, just after getting a new puppy! It took a little while to finish the wrapper, in between walks, play, and training sessions for Keiko, but she did it! It’s a beautiful fit, a beautiful color, and beautiful workmanship:
Cindy Schuchart took my Corella hat class this summer, in between vacations with a house full of kids and grandkids. She made a beautiful hat and got comfortable with charts as well.
Cindy also made this pretty poncho for her daughter-in-law from our in-house free pattern. Finished in plenty of time for fall, the poncho is perfect!
Virginia Griffith made this great open-work tunic from two colors of Shibui Twig. (So sorry for the photo. Take my word for it, it’s really pretty!)
Debby Andrews finished this pretty feather-and-fan tam, then made a cowl in the same stitch pattern to match. She’s all set for cool weather:
Anne Alderman made these two good-looking summer tops, plus one or two more, plus some hats…and on and on…!
Jill Pelchar made this great hoodie for her daughter, who models it beautifully!
Linda Seifarth loves small projects. She made the adorable hat and the in-process headband for a grand who, I think, is heading to Penn State. The beautiful Touch-Me scarf is in her own favorite color. The headband pattern and the scarf patterns are ours and are free with purchase:
Anne Nordhoy made up her own bunch of blocks for this afghan, made from scraps from other projects. It’s amazing!
However, the belle of the blog has got to be this challenging sweater Amy Wall made for her nephew Joey – cables, steeks and all! He obviously adores it; you don’t see bigger smiles than this:
Many thanks to everyone who sends me photos or takes the time to bring in finished projects. It’s a real joy to see them!
