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.
Come in to pick your favorite today!
Fall is just around the corner and I’ve started gearing up by knitting this tuck stitch cowl from Plymouth Yarn. Something about this baby alpaca and merino wool blend bouclé just spoke to me. Bouclé is made from a length of loops that can range from small to circles to larger curls with at least two strands combined. One strand is the anchor while the other strand is plied forming loose loops. When you knit bouclé it creates more of a solid fabric.
This cowl knit out of one hank of Worsted Merino Superwash and one hank of Arequipa Aventura from Plymouth yarn is all about texture. You begin by knitting the grey section first using a tuck stitch 4 row repeat. This section is knit flat and then sewn together. Then you add the bouclé by picking up the stitches along one edge with a larger needle and knitting in the round. L & B Yarn Co. is also offering this class in August, just click here to find out more!
The Malabrigo shipment of Rasta, Rios, and Worsted is here! L & B has 6 new Rasta colorways to the shop Reflecting Pool, Plomo, Ravelry Red, Stitch Red, Sabiduria, and Sombras.
