New Talent

Thursday, March 31st, 2011


You may have noticed a charming new face around the shop lately, it’s Ann! I’ve known Ann for some time now, she’s been in the shop and a knit night regular I look forward to seeing every week. Recently we convinced Ann she should come on board and join the UY team! Ann is very talented knitter always eager to learn a new technique or take on a challenging project. She has great taste in colours and projects (if you ask me) so be sure to find out what she’s working on if you see her.


Ann has knit many things but I think my faves are her wedding shrug and her Reindeer sweater. The wedding shrug is simple in construction but with a lot of detailed lace. I recall many knit nights of working on this shrug and I LOVE the photographs of the finished product. Ann knit this beauty up in Handmaiden Silk Lace, a 100% silk yarn with a generous 984 yards per skein. The pattern is the Sugarplum Shrug.


The Reindeer sweater is how Ann and I met, she took a lesson with me on how to do intarsia for the reindeer. She is a more diligent knitter than I though, so her sweater is actually done. She knit it up in Cascade Eco, the same yarn Kynna is using. (Kynna and I are still working on our reindeers…..). Ann’s colour choices are great and the well blocked finished product is fantastic!


I highly recommend that you check out Ann’s blog, the photography is fantastic and she always has a new project on the go or an interesting knitterly observation. Glad to have you with us Ann!
