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.

Midnight Craving

Diana, our Ravelry moderator, knit Midnight Craving by Jennifer Weissman.  Diana used Malabrigo Yarn Sock in colorway #857 light of Love purchased at Rainy Day Yarns in Gig Harbor, Washington.  Doesn’t this picture just scream SPRING?? Midnight Craving is a paid pattern over on Ravelry.  I love it, and the shawl.  I’m so inspired, I have to go and knit now.  Thanks Diana!!

Midnight Craving

Diana, the moderator over in the America’s Knitting Ravelry group, just finished her Midnight Craving by Jennifer Weissman.  It is so beautiful right now, here in the Pacific Northwest, we had to do a photoshoot, and get some pictures.

Midnight Craving is one of 3 reversible shawl patterns in Jennifer’s ebook Right Lovely: A Trio Of Reversible Wraps.  You can purchase the whole trio for $12.50 or a single pattern for $5 over on Ravelry for download.  The yarn Diana used was purchased at Rainy Day Yarns in Gig Harbor, Washington, and is Malabrigo Yarn Sock in colorway #857 Light Of Love.

The color is yummy, the shawl is perfect, not to big, and not by any means dinky, and it’s definitely the start of wrap wearing weather…and, it’s reversible, so just put it on, in whatever fashion you choose.  Here you can see Diana wearing it in three different ways.

Thanks for the photo shoot yesterday Diana, it was fun!  Next time, we’ll visit the yarn shop….coffee and conversation was great~
