Tricked Out Ewe

Tricked Out Ewe_1

When you head down to fiber fest stop in at L & B to check out our new local hand dyed yarn, Tricked Out Ewe.  I am absolutely in love with this bright vivid palette.  We are lucky enough to be the first store to carry this yarn by Ashley Turner.  Ashley is a stay at home mom that has always loved to create art and has owned her own business for 9 years.  Three years ago she began knitting and fell in love with color and fiber.  Her business Tricked Out Gems took on a new life and she added Tricked Out Ewe, a hand dyed luxury yarn.  Being a entrepreneur helps Ashley stay at home with her two children and also helps support her husband who is in the Air Force serving our country.

Tricked Out Ewe has four multi-colorways.

Dropped Paper Poncho

Drop Paper Poncho_1

I love this lightweight version of our original paper poncho.  The dropped stitches make it more open and airy, perfect to throw on over your favorite summer tank!  We knit this one out of 3 skeins of Berroco Remix.  Remix is a super soft, non-wool tweed yarn made from recycled fibers.

Drop Paper Poncho_3

This machine washable yarn is made up of nylon, cotton, acrylic, silk and linen.  The yarn is a great weathered tweed option without the wool.  The pattern is great for knitters at any level, there are only a few different stitches you need to know and with minimal seaming it knits up quickly.

Drop Paper Poncho_2

We have 8 colors of Remix to choose from including Eggplant, Strawberry, Ocean, Mist, and Patina.  Come by the store to pick up your favorite color and the pattern is free with your purchase of the yarn!

Felted Bunnies

Needle Felt Bunnies_1

Spring is in the air and we have been needle felting up a storm.  If you have never needle felted before it is super fun and most of all very simple.  You can create lots of shapes with just a few supplies.  You will need a felting pad, felting needle, core wool, and some brightly colored curly locks.  We created these spring bunnies using a cookie cutter for our pattern.

Needle Felt Bunnies_2

Accent your favorite flowers with a bunny or make an entire bouquet of bunnies like we have done.  You could also string them to make a really cute spring garland!!  First lay your cookie cutter on your felting pad and place a small amount of core wool inside, then start punching with your felting needle, remember to punch straight up and down because the needles are fragile.  Once you have punched a bunny about 1/4″ thick from the core wool layer it with a small amount of your colored curly locks.  Punch your color on both sides and remove your bunny from the cookie cutter.  You should be able to see the shape of your bunny by now and can add the color to the edges.

We have everything you need to create these bunnies here at the store so come by to start creating your spring accent!
