As some of you may know, Elise just can’t resist making projects for her kids when they ask. All of her kids have their different favorites (Maxx requests so many hats, he either loses them weekly or sells them on the side!) but her youngest, Miranda, loves a good scarf. So when Miranda asked her for a new summer scarf, Elise sprung to action! This week’s POTW is the Slinky Cowl, knit with the fabulous Pixie from our friends at Tahki Stacy Charles on US #13 needles.

(like that little purple peaking out from that cute neck line??)

Elise has always been a pretty healthy eater. Lot’s of salads, not too much red meat, and of course, tofu is a staple on her table. Much to her children’s chagrin Elise served tofu many nights a week to her family at dinner. (Okay, maybe there was a tofu hit or two. Tofu Carbonaro, anyone?)  So it makes perfect sense that Elise also loves to serve up a fabulous Tofu Knit! This week’s POTW is the Chevron Baby Sweater!  Knit with the fabulous Oasis, the 100% Soy yarn we’ve come to know and love from our friends at South West Trading, this very cute baby cardi and hat are just the thing for your springtime little one!   Normally priced at over $40, this week it can be yours for only $32!

If you are in the metro Tarrytown area, come enjoy our Halloween parade tonight!

(Working on size 50’s, its scary how fast you can get projects done!)

Image

Lulu is all dressed up for Halloween, and has even carved her very own knitted pumpkin!!!

Image

You can knit your very own knitted pumpkin! (and wear it too!)

(sometimes you don’t need words! (babies speak for themselves!))

Sometime in the summer you just need a little Ice Cream!

Image

I must admit my favorite part are the Cherries on top!

Image

Also a lacy Granny Square?Image

Okay I guess you don’t need that second one as much as WANT one (or a whole blanket’s worth!!)

Always love it when I get boxes in from Manos del Uruguay !!

Today one of our students finished the Bobbi Bear from Blue Sky Alpaca!   Knit with the company’s Bulky Alpaca blend, it’s soft as a cloud and cute as a bear can be!

I happen to be one of those knitters that pretty much always has a blanket going, whether it be in the cold of winter, or the oppressive heat of a 4th floor un-air conditioned walk up in the middle of summer (ok so that one is pretty specific to me!)

Image

Knit with a bulky wool on US #50 needles, holding two strands together, this fairly large blanket knit up in no time!  ( I cast on 55 sts and just knit the whole sucker in stockinette)

Image

I love the fabric that the loose weave creates on the comically large 50’s

Check out this week’s Warehouse Wednesday!

As we approach another Warehouse Wednesday, the buzz word around the conference table was “soft”.  Soft to the touch, soft for the eyes, and soft on the wallet!   Okay, so by conference table, we mean over by the merino, left of the cotton!

First off this week, we have the always beautiful Aurora 8 from Karabella.  We are offering more then 30 colors of this soft as a cloud Italian Merino, for only $5 a skein!  At this price, the time is now for that huge cuddly blanket you have always dreamed of.

Also this week, we have Mandarin Petit from Swedish Yarns. This fabulous 100% cotton is soft as the cotton fluff ball of your dreams, all at the very soft price of only $3 a skein!

   And to paraphrase Roosevelt, knit softly and carry a big knitting needle!
