Just a few small odds and ends tonight.
1) I finished (finally, after like…. 6 months) the China Blue 2 crewel kit that I’ve been working on. I use finished in the most generous sense of the word, as I still need to press and mount it. But the embroidery is done, and it was a lot of fun! We’ve still got a number of assorted Wool & Hoop kits in store.
2) This really cool triangular shawl/scarf! The pattern is Metalouse, by the ever-captivating Stephen West. This particular sample was knit with 2 balls of Noro Aya, and 2 balls of Schoppel-Wolle Cashmere Queen. It is just indulgently soft and luxurious.
3) Finally, we have a few Babette’s Blanket kits left. At $299.95, the kits include all the yarn, and the pattern (everything needed except the hook), more than enough to recreate this fun and colourful blanket for yourself. (And on a side note, I would highly recommend both the story and film, if you haven’t seen them already.)
