a few new shop samples to inspire you

Hilary knit this simple but elegant garter stitch scarf called Basalt with 3 colors of Road To China Light by The Fibre Company.  Love it!

Hilary and I took turns knitting this Shoulder Cozy by Churchmouse.  We double stranded Berroco’s Seduce with Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze.  It can be worn as a capelet or as an infinity cowl.  A versatile little piece!

I just finished this cabled baby cardi called Mignon.  It took one skein of Cascade Ultra Pima – and a darling lady bug button.  Pure sweetness.  (I suggest buying 2 skeins of Cascade Ultra Pima because I used every last inch, and it’s better to be safe than sorry.   You can always use your extra for a hat or other cute companion piece.)

If you’d like to get springy and knit with linen, try this little accessory called Summer Wind.  I used  2 skeins of Shibui Linen, a unique fiber with a cool chain construction.

I’m currently knitting this Ruched Scarf by Churchmouse.  I double stranded Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze with Blue Sky Alpaca’s Royal Petites yarn.  It feels incredibly soft and airy, and it’s fun to knit.  While this isn’t exactly a spring project, the pattern does include a light weight shawl version that’s just beautiful.
