The Yarn is Coming! The Yarn is Coming!

After 2 months of waiting, I’ve just been informed that my supplier is sending out a large order of Merino/Cashmere/Nylon yarn in sock, sport and worsted weights.  I’m assuming this means they found the cashmere goats.  With that in mind, I expect the next update to be in early January.  Any colour requests?

As an apology for the wait, we’ve extended the deadline for all discount codes issued this fall at various events to February 18, 2010.  Plenty of time for Valentine’s Day gifts…or the “lack of Valentine’s” hangover.

Ron and I have a little bit of a competition going:  which will sell better, the new cowl or the crazy mitts?  Stay tuned…


Old Copper Pipes

Today my world looks like this:

We’re snowed in.  The sn0w on the deck is at least up to my waist, and since I can no longer see the car, I assume it’s even deeper out in the world.

So I’ve had plenty of time to finish writing up the pattern for the Old Copper Pipes cowl.

Designed to look like twisted, old copper pipes, this cowl’s complex cables create a thick layer of warmth against cold snowy days.  Knit with a double strand of Malabrigo Sock Yarn, the Archangel colourway has all the layers of colour of oxidized copper.  One of my favourite things.

A couple of years ago, Ron asked for a pair of three fingered mitts.

Not Hunter’s Mitts.  Not gloves.  And not, god forbid, covertible mitts.  Three fingered mitts.  That look exactly like this:

I know, because he drew me a picture of what he wanted, and then we went on a field trip to Lettuce Knit to pick out the yarn.  (Occasionally he takes the mitts back there to visit their “brothers”)  Apparently he had a pair of fleece ones when he worked at Canada’s Wonderland in his youth and has been pining for them ever since.

I think they’re just weird.  But he thinks they’re the best thing ever.  I think he may even like them more than me.

Troiclaux the pattern.

Now available.

Knit well and prosper?
