I’ve recently completed my Easy Goes It Shawl by Finicky Creations. The pattern is a free download on Ravelry. It was a fun and easy to knit. The shawl grew quickly and there was enough variation in the pattern sections to keep it from getting boring. I knit the majority of this shawl while in the car, in the good old days when we could still go places! I chose to knit this shawl in my SW Merino, Cashere and Nylon yarn.… Read More »Easy Goes It Shawl

He would head home for the morning and work. Around 1 he would return with… Read More »Little Green Hat

I love when my customers share their finished projects with me. About a month ago, Mary Ann reached out to me via Facebook and shared a picture of the socks she had made with the yarn she purchased this past summer. Aren’t they wonderful?

Each skein is a generous 438 yds/100g made of 85% Superwash Merino and… Read More »Mary Ann’s Socks
