Both hats are done out of a thick bulky weight yarn on size 13 needles. The top is Twinkle Soft Chunky, a lovely bulky weight, super soft, great colored yarn. We will be using this yarn for one of our upcoming FREE thanksgiving classes. I'll post more about this project next week. The bottom one is a lovely hand painted. We've got about a half dozen colors of this soft hand-dyed yarn on the back wall.
Next up, Marilyn, or as we call her Marilyn Marilyn, you know because we have Triplet Marilyn, finished this beautiful Modular Square Vest out of Jarbo Garn Duo. It's a lovely striping 100% Acrylic, Machine Washable, Super soft yarn. Better yet there are 343 yards on one skein and 3.5 sts on a 10.5 needle. We've had quite a few people buy this yarn for all types of projects. Scarves, hats, baby sweaters, men and women's sweaters, jackets and even afghans. We've got more coming again, it's almost sold out twice, but we still have plenty in stock for many different projects.
Sue D, one of my funniest customers, has become a master at knitting 2 socks at the same time, after taking our 2 at a time Sock Class. She finished matching Knee high socks out of the lovely Tofutsies for her nieces, and is making a pair Harry Potter socks for their Dad. I believe the color she used was Hedwig. He has a size 14 shoe, so if that isn't love, I don't know what it is. She's a wiz at turning the heel 2 at a time, which is the hardest part of the whole process. We've got plenty of both yarns in the shop, use them for socks, for scarves or even for the side to side baby sweater that Sara finished last week. Beautiful.
