The gals at the Renton Stitchers were kind enough to all pitch in for my booth at Oregon Flock and Fiber this weekend and knit samples for all to see....and let me tell you what!!! They are fantastic! Each of them uses only one skein for the pattern...yes, even the sweaters! The chevron scarves use 2 skeins, but the pattern calls for two different skeins so whatcha gonna do?!
Aren't these adorable....the first is the suprise baby jacket, the vest is out of XXL Duet, and the final one is a lovely pattern by Liberty
Next up is socks galore!!! Big ones, little ones, fancy ones and shorty ones.
There's gonna be lots of warm feet out there this winter!
Here we have Sally and Teddy Skipper sporting adorable knit sets! Sally is wearing a newborn set of booties, mittens and beany. Teddy Skipper has on a frilly crocheted number-perfect for everyday wear! :P
And finally we have the Chevron Scarf from last minute knitted gifts! I know some of you had hear these had been made using Duet Sock Yarns and were eager to see them so let me tell you a little bit about each. The one on the left, knitted by Liz , is done using the main colors throughout the body of the scarf and the coordinating colors for the trim...the colors she used are Chocolate Fantasy and Hearthrob. The one on the right is knitted by Joanne and she alternated the trim with the main color then when the trim ran out, alternated the main colors...the colors she used were Hot Flash and Lemonade Stand. I don't know about you, but know I am inspired to knit my own Chevron Scarf!!!
