3 Color Cashmere Cowl

3-Color Cashmere Cowl_1

I have been eyeing the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl by Joji Locatelli for sometime now.  I finally decided to try it in one of our new spring yarns, Hempathy by Elsebeth Lavold.  I am in love with how it turned out!!  This pattern paired with a hemp, cotton, and modal blend is going to be fabulous with my spring wardrobe.

This knit flew by, it was one of those projects that I didn’t want to end.  The pattern changes periodically making you want to keep knitting so you can see how the next pattern looks in the yarn.  I used 5 balls of Hempathy (2 pale silver, 2 bleached white, and 1 vibrant lemon) I literally used up every inch of the vibrant lemon but I had enough to finish that section.

Blocking this project went very well, the yarn is machine washable and I washed it on gentle cycle and then laid flat to dry.  This yarn knitted up nicely and even more exciting is it washed beautifully.  If you haven’t tried this pattern yet check it out by clicking here.  You won’t be sorry that you did!!

 

Mirasol Pima Splash

This new yarn from Mirasol is 219 yards of 100% Peruvian Pima Cotton.  The chain construction gives the yarn bounce and keeps it lightweight and airy.  This is the perfect, fun, hand painted yarn to work up a spring top and we have five bright colorways to choose from!

Feza Alp Oriental

Alp Oriental is the most artisan looking yarn in Feza’s collection.  Every ball is hand-tied with three strands of yarn held together to give you a super bulky gauge for quick knit and crochet projects.  The yarn includes the pre-cut fringe that can be attached to scarf/shawl projects without you having to cut your own.

We have lots of Alp Oriental in a one-of-a-kind assortment called Just for You, each ball is unique with different fibers and color combinations. This quick shawl called Feza Super Easy by Fiber Circle Yarn in Farmersville, Texas is such a cute single ball project.

It can be worn a couple different ways and would look so adorable with jeans and your favorite pair of boots.  Using a size 19-40″ circular needle this project fits sizes 6 to 14 but if you wish to make it larger, you can continue working the length with a second ball until the desired size is reached.  Just come by the store to pick out your favorite ball of ALP Oriental and a copy of the pattern.
