Last week, Lindsay came rushing in, on a mission to whip up the Claudette Hat- she needed Koigu in a hurry! When it was finished (the next day), she tried it on- and it was no wonder why it was a must have emergency! It's so fab!!! This sassy little number took 3 skeins of Koigu, held double (woo hoo- quick)... For all of you ravelers, you can find the pattern here, if not- it can be purchased on Etsy. It's a clever yet very simple pattern, basically a basket weave strip that is wrapped and tucked- I love it!!
It's been a little crazy over here, we received a beautiful, as always, shipment from the Fibre Company. New colors of Terra, and a replenishment of Road to China Light, which has been flying out the door since I posted my Ulmus last week. I think I'm going to grab 4 skeins of Terra in Acorn, to knit me the Springtime Bandit by Kate Gagnon Osborn... Terra feels so luscious in a skein, knitting it must be amazing... I can't wait. This is another fabulous accessory, perfect for fall and the pattern is FREE!!!
ooooh! ps! The new fall colors of Worsted Hand dyes came from Blue Sky Alpacas, and it just so happened that a fantastic, gorgeous, to die for shawl pattern is on it's way from our dear friend at Through the Loops, sneak a peak, and then- we'll be seeing you over here for some worsted, I'm soooo knitting this in Blue Sky's new colorway Petunia (or maybe Mulberry)!!
