Now We All Want to Knit This


Lois arrived at the shop wearing her newest completed project and drew wows and raves from everyone, including the UPS guy.

So that we can spare her all the inevitable questions . . . here's the skinny (or the bulky, in this case!): The pattern -- a fun case of swirling cables with bobbles -- is by Mary Burr and was found on Knitty.com. Known as Aibhlinn (pronounced "ave - leen") it's shown on Knitty as a cowl, but Lois likes it as a shrug (although it is still cowl-able!). She knit it with 1 skein of Blue Moon Icelandic (available in our shop or as a phone order, but not from our website) and 1 skein of Rowan Kidsilk Haze using size 13 needles. That combination of fibers makes it feel like bulky cashmere, by the way. Lois cast on 84 stitches and the rest, as they say . . .

We'd love to see what you come up with using our yarns!
