October Pattern, New knit-a-long, and so much news!

093009161152

Available until October 31st as our pattern of the month…

Our new neckwamer pattern is just the pattern you want for total luxury and warmth!  This neckwarmer is made from Ellie’s Reclaimed Cashmere which is gorgeous and a complete joy to work with and wear.  We won’t talk about how difficult it is to get the neckwarmer off of a certain young model!  The pattern requires about 300 yards of Ellie’s Cashmere and just about 10-20 yards of a contrast color (of desired).  I used Feza Mesmerize and it’s deep colors really compliment many of the cashmere colors. 

 This pattern is free through the month of October with purchase of suggested yarn.

New Knit-a-Long Starts October 1st!

Our next knit-a-long will be starting on Thursday, October 1st.  We will be working on the February Lady Sweater.  Beautiful and fun…and best of all…knitted in one piece.  You can find the free pattern on Ravelry, just search for “February Lady Sweater”.  We are suggesting that you use Tosh Worsted for this project, but there are many other options, so come in and take a look!

 As always, knit-a-longs are a completely free event, but please purchase yarn for knit-a-longs at Island Yarn.

New yarns arriving almost everyday for fall!

We’ve recently received some gorgeous boxes of yarns that you don’t want to miss!   We’ve got new sock yarn from Madelinetosh as well as her Pure Silk Lace (yum), and Tosh Worsted, new colors of Wisdom Poems, O-Wool in its beautiful dk weight, and lots of new recycled yarn…both ours and Ellie’s.  Square needles are back in (for the most part, but I’m always ordering more) and we are expecting a box of Boomerang this week.  So much fun stuff, so little time.

Please vote!
