Just a couple things

Posted on July 14 2015

First I have to say I am so excited about all of you participating in the Knit-A-Long. I'm already thinking about what to make next and what kind of good deal we can give you for joining. So keep those fingers ready for more knitting. How are you're cables going? I'm going to post a video tutorial tomorrow on cabling. I'm using the new Knitters Pride cable needles. So if you need some direction check back tomorrow. Now... I want to share something that I recently tried and is helping me a lot. I've been knitting my Mom a cozy Shibui Mix shawl. It's three yarns held together to make one yummy fabric. Two strands of Shibui Pebble (48% Silk, 36% Wool, 16% Cashmere/ 224yds) and one strand Silk Cloud (60% kid mohair, 40% silk/ 330 yds) held together. It's really nice and I'm loving knitting on these yarns. But when I told my Mon how difficult it it's to knit all three yarns without the silk getting all tangled up she offered a little help... In the form of Chicken Boots, a local handmade knitting bag and needle case designer. Mom tossed me one of the Wristlets and told me to put the Silk Cloud inside. Holy knitting batman! It was the answer and took out the irritation from this project. No more cutting my pretty yarn and no more ratty messes. I will be using this knitting helper for everything that I can. 20140120-113628.jpg 20140120-113655.jpg 20140120-113709.jpg 20140120-113737.jpg She also added this great (and super practical) pocket. I can have all my notions ready and an entire project will fit inside. My small ball of Silk Cloud has a lot of room to roll around in there. We also carry Chicken Boots needle and notions cases and knitting bags. If you haven't tried them out I recommend having a look. Her fabric choices are so good too!! Love this one I have with the cute squirrels! Or the Fox pattern?! So good! Happy knitting! xx Ash
