Here Comes Santa Clause

Is your LYS decorating for Christmas yet?  Well, if not, I’m sure they are planning that.  I know it’s not even Thanksgiving yet.  BUT, in the knitting world, the art of gift giving has to start early.  Look what Ronda over at Main St. Yarn Shop (Hartford, Wisconsin) made.  I wonder if she will have classes for these fun little guys or if they will decorate her store.  The pattern is Here We Gnome Again, and the pattern is by Sarah Schira.  The yarn that Sarah used is Malabrigo Yarn Sock.  The pattern has instructions for worsted weight yarn too, and can be found on Ravelry.

Fall Is Cape Weather

My dearest friend Lynn, is an accomplished knitter!  She moved away some years back, but thank goodness for texting, cell phones and pictures…so we can keep in touch.  Here is her latest knit.

Meet Indigo Frost by Isabell Kraemer.  Lynn is always cold.  She’s the gal with the fleece lined jeans, fleece sheets on her bed, and a new coat every for every season.  It makes perfect sense that she would knit this cape a little longer for added warmth.  Lynn used a bulk worsted alpaca that she had purchased at a fiber market some years back.

Great job Lynn!  Enjoy fall in Missouri, and I’ll see you in December in Seattle!!
