While bobbing around the shop, helping people match yarns and patterns, I re-discovered an old favorite: Blue Sky Alpacas Suri Merino. It’s so soft and sumptuous. A single ply yarn in a charming mix of merino and alpaca, perfect for both large and small projects alike.


In looking for a new project to match this wonderful yarn I came across the Banstead pullover. This simple, yet lovely, pullover is knit in the Suri Merino and sizes range from 42″-66″ classifying it as a ‘big girl knit’. I love the shaping that makes this sweater great. Urban Yarns is giving the whole magazine the pattern comes in (Interweave Knits Summer 2011) free with the purchase of yarn.

Fantastic Mr. Fox

I recently saw this silly little movie and it was great. I mean, is there anything better than George Clooney as a hen hungry fox, looking to break away from his safe and settled life and back into his wild ways of the past? Nope, I love Clooney, I can’t help it.


So after watching some Clooney/cartoony magic I was particularly smitten with Kynna’s latest project: a Fantastic Fox of her very own. It’s adorable! I have only seen it in person while it was in progress but it was adorable even then. Another great toy knit from Interweave Knits Magazine. Knitting mags are so much fun, there is usually a wide assortment of patterns as well as some interesting knitterly tidbits to peruse.


This Fantastic Fox was made with Classic Elite Fresco, a soft yarn in just the right foxy colour. Pick up a mag and a couple of skeins and make yourself a little foxy of your very own.
