Make a Wish by Joji Locatelli is the perfect little sweater for the fall season. This circular cardigan is worked seamlessly in one piece, with top-down set in sleeves. It is easy to wear and can be dressed up or down.
Jenna knit this sweater in Manos del Uruguay Fino-Silver Tea Set. Fino is a beautiful blend of 70% extra fine merino wool and 30% silk. This yarn is absolutely one of our favorite in the shop and gives every project a gorgeous drape . It is a soft, shiny single-ply fingering weight yarn.
Fino is kettle dyed which creates a marbleized striated effect forming a rich palette of relaxing colors. The pattern has a unique construction with lace patterns across the back of the project and along the front edges adding texture and interest as you knit.

This scarf pattern by Universal Yarn is absolutely adorable. It’s a super quick crochet with just 13 rows and using a large size N hook. The scarf is worked length wise making it easy to memorize each row as you work across the project.
You need 87 yards of each contrasting color and 261 yards of the main color in a chunky. I was able to complete this project in just 6 hours so it makes a great gift for the upcoming season.
I love the texture of the scarf mixing puff stitches and single crochets together giving it a vintage look. The large fringe added at the end gives it extra length so you can wear it so many different ways.

While searching Ravelry for the perfect project to donate to the Positive Tomorrows annual toy drive I ran across Wild Thing by Susan Claudino. This precious little monster is inspired by Maurice Sendak’s unconventional children’s story, “Where The Wild Things Are.” The pattern has instructions for a basic monster, as well as a monster wearing adorable pajamas, complete with a buttoned flap on his tushie.
When I first saw the photograph I doubted my knitting skills while admiring all of his tiny pieces. The project went so quickly and the pattern was so well written that I couldn’t stop knitting him and I decided to make three.
Not only is this the perfect project for the toy drive it is also the perfect baby gift to pair with the book. The last day to donate toys for the drive will be August 31st. Thanks so much for everyone’s participation, we have collected over 30 toys so far!!
We just received a bundle of locally made project bags in fun fabric prints! Each bag is lined with a contrasting fabric on the inside along with a drawstring closure.
