It all started when I spied this Dagmar Sweater pattern in Ravelry's Hot Right Now list. The best use of a cable to emphasise shape i've seen, maybe ever. Too often this idea is played out and turns into this weird thing that splits the body in two, but here the cable serves as an elegant frame rather than an overwhelming design feature. I'm also smitten with the shaped hem, and the overall texture.
Argh! There's that word already! The dreaded Christmas. I can't believe it's sneaking up on us so gosh darn quick. I think i'll go back into my nice cave of denial and instead give you this:
The shop is packed with wonderful stock right now, and a few new features to make your shopping expedition that little bit lovelier!
There's a brand new bright pink chalk board door - we'll use it to tell you about exciting new products, upcoming classes, and maybe share some pretty pictures.
Mmmm all our Zealana is looking gosh darn fantastic.
And a new window display is up - which as usual is impossible to get a decent photo of, so you'll have to use your imagination and go by the planning drawing:
You get the idea? Right? Yes?
Anyway. We're super looking forward to Saturday Sit & Knit this weekend - flourless chocolate cake is on the menu. Oh, and we had better mention the return of Thursday Knit Night - it'll be fortnightly this year, with the first session next week.
