Kid Seta - Light as a Feather Shawl

Kid Seta is a lovely blend of Super Kid Mohair and Silk with just a dash of Merino Wool added for loft.  There are 300 yards in one 25 gram ball and I thought it could be fun to see what I could make out of one ball.  It turned out to be the perfect travel project - very light weight and it fit in my purse very easily.  At times when I was working with it, the strand of yarn would seem to gently float  down to my lap.



Mohair is lovely to knit on big needles - it holds its shape and is allowed to breathe a bit.  One ball actually made a shawl that is about 46" across the top and 20" at the point.  The finished shawl would be a great one to keep with you to wear in the air conditioning or if it cools of in the evening and with about 25 g of yarn it is virtually weightless.

Fixation Arm Warmer/Hand Cover

During the shutdown one of the Local Yarn Shops we work with suggested I design an arm warmer that can be used as a hand cover for opening doors, pushing shopping carts and other times that you need to touch something while out of the house. The idea being that you could pull it down and back up on the top side of your hand when you wanted to have something as a barrier between your hand and an object. This is particularly helpful when there is no convenient place to wash your hands or hand sanitizer available. They can be worn on your arm or scrunched on your wrist. Fixation was a natural fit for this project - mostly cotton with just a bit of elastic that has the added bonus of being easy care. You can make a pair of the small or medium with one 50 gram ball. The larger size will use a bit more than 1 ball. The pattern is pretty simple - just knit in the round with a bit of ribbing at each end.   Gauge Approx 6 sts/inch (unstretched) in stockinette Fini

A Year of Giving - April - Cantata - Hackensack

For April, I made another hat in Cantata - a fun, multi-season yarn with a unique construction (a cotton cage with superwash wool blown inside). A heathery-denim look pairs well with great stitch definition in this soft, lightweight yarn. The stitch pattern is a swirling, slightly lacy rib that moves in a diagonal direction. We will be giving away 3 kits of 2 skeins each (enough to make 2 hats) - 2 through Facebook and 1 here on the Blog. To enter on the Blog, comment with your favorite color of Cantata. The winner will be selected on Monday, April 22, 2019 at 3 pm PST.
