Nurmilintu

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 World’s Simplest Mittens

These mitten’s by Tin Can Knits are truly simple and adorable. The pattern is easy to read and includes the sizing for all the different weight yarns and different size people from toddler to adult large. They are so quick you can whip out a pair over a weekend! I missed the boat to make these for Christmas gifts but, I’m going to get a jump start for next year and start knitting these for all my family and friends.

I made the adult small with just one ball of the lovely Debbie Bliss Luxury Tweed. This yarn is soft, bouncy, and warm. This yarn is a must try if  you haven’t used it before I know you will love it. So pop in to L & B Yarn Co. to pick up your favorite color and make your own pair of the World’s Simplest Mittens!! Click here to check out this amazing pattern by Tin Can Knits.
