I fell in love with Milton by Jen Lucas the first time I saw a photograph! This shawl combines many different stitch combinations including cables, lace, and garter stitch.
It knits up beautifully in gradient yarn and the Done Roving Gradient Kit is perfect for this shawl shape. Milton is worked from one corner out forming an asymmetrical triangle.
Once the body of the shawl is complete a few stitches are cast on to form the lace border. I love the delicate vintage look of the shawl when it is complete. Click here to take a look at the pattern. L & B just received 7 colors of the Done Roving Gradient Kits so you are sure to find your favorite!
Each gradient skein is separate making it easy to choose your color order. Thank you to Carolyn for letting us photograph her lovely Milton!
These felted needle cases and knitting bags are absolutely adorable! These are fair trade items handmade in Nepal and designed by Frabjous Fibers.
They are made by artisans in Kathmandu skilled in the ancient craft of felt-making.
Wool fibers are laid out in the desired design, saturated with soap and water, and worked by hand to lock the fibers together.
This results in a sturdy, water repellent, and easy to clean fabric.
These items are made of 100% wool, cotton lined, and are truly fabulous!!

This sweet little shawl by Heidi Alander is a fun quick knit! Heidi says the name Nurmilintu comes from an old Finnish lullaby: Nuku, nuku, nurmilintu…(Free translation: “Sleep, sleep, little bird…”) The shawl is light and airy with a delicate picot bind off which reminds me of bird feathers.
The pattern holds the knitters interest alternating between the lace and garter stitch sections which means not a single purl stitch!
The size is easily adjusted by repeating the garter and lace parts as many times as you wish. L & B used one ball of Debbie Bliss Fine Donegal. This yarn has a hefty 415 yards and is a gorgeous blend of merino wool and cashmere.
We have 10 different colors in stock including three new light colorways perfect for spring. You can visit Heidi Alander on the web at www.sadelmaknits.com. Check out the pattern on her Ravelry store by clicking here.

The blanket is just the right size to fit in a crib and is even big enough for a older child to use. L & B has 9 colors available and each kit is just $44!! This is the perfect gift for your extra special little one.
L & B Yarn Co. is very excited to announce that we have been added to the list of providers of Knitted Knockers! Knitted Knockers are special handmade breast prosthesis for women who have undergone mastectomies or other procedures to the breast. Traditional breast prosthetics are usually expensive, heavy, sweaty and uncomfortable. They typically require special bras or camisoles with pockets and can’t be worn for weeks after surgery. Knitted Knockers on the other hand are soft, comfortable, beautiful and when placed in a regular bra they take the shape and feel of a real breast.
Knitted Knockers can be adjusted to fill the gap for breasts that are uneven and easily adapted for those going through reconstruction by simply removing some of the stuffing. Knitted Knockers asks that we use the patterns listed on their website and the approved yarns. The yarn used for Knitted Knockers is very important as they are to be worn against scarred, sensitive skin. L & B Yarn Co. has some of the yarns included on the approved yarn list including: Cascade Ultra Pima, Bamboo Pop, and Cotton Supreme DK. If you are interested in donating a Knitted Knocker just click here to take a look at the patterns and the approved yarn list. When you have completed your Knocker just drop them by L & B Yarn Co. and we will get them shipped out for distribution!
