I love knitting shawls, especially lace ones.  I’ve  had Jared Flood’s Rock Island on my to do list for a few months.  I love the new yarns from Juniper Moon and was sure that I wanted to make it in Findley.  Then came the hard part of choosing a color.  What would it be??  The gold?  One of the blues?  Once my color choice was made, then I had to fit in the time to knit it. Luckily, some of my friends wanted to make it so we decided to start it on Tuesday, November 29th.  We’ll probably start after lunch, about 1 o’clock.   So, if you like knit-a-longs and lace knitting,  join us on the 29th.  The pattern is available on Ravelry.  Check it out.


Madelinetosh Vintage is here!

November 16, 2011

Kim here, doing a guest appearance blog post to let you know that yarn from my absolute favorite dyer, Madelinetosh, has arrived at Knit!

The new arrivals are the Madelinetosh Vintage base, which has 200 yards per skein, in Tart, Alizarin (one of my favorite Madtosh colors), Earl Grey, Warm Mushroom (which looks great with the Earl Grey), Plaid Blanket, Mica (a beautiful baby blue), Magnolia Leaf, Vanilla Bean, Black Velvet (an unusual, gorgeous grey/purple colorway) and Steam Age.  Do I get bonus points for knowing 9 out of 10 colors from memory?  There is also Shoreline, Clematis, Corsage (a beautiful pink) and Mare.

One skein of Alizarin is coming home with me to make a pair of Eugenia’s Mittens and I have a feeling I’ll be back for more. What colorways are you excited to purchase?  Leave a comment below and let us know what you are planning to knit with your skeins!

Crazy weather – winter’s coming

November 2, 2011

Snow in October! Hurricanes and Earthquakes in New York!  My Aunt Nettie used to say that the astronauts traveling in space were causing the weather changes.  Who know if Aunt Nettie was right?  Anyway you look at it, winter is coming and no better time than the present to start getting ready.  We’ve got some new big yarns, knit on 17 and 35 needles, that you can make a scarf in just one night.

Or try out this reversible color scarf.  It’s easy to make and looks great on both sides.  I’ve added a button so I can wear it as a scarf or a cowl.
