Shelley Shelley is tackling the world of socks and we think she has done an amazing job! The oh so fun self striping yarn and a little help from some friends and her first one is complete! Great job.
In between the first and second sock, Shelley has also knit up this lovely Annabella's cowl in The Fiber Company's yarn Acadia. This is so squishy and soft, we almost didn't let her have it back after the photo! Shelley

 

Kristina stopped in to get some parts for her loom and we couldn't help but notice her beautiful cowl adorning her neck. She wove this lovely piece using her own hand spun and then joined it together where her fringes were to give the illusion of a scarf. We love it! Kristina

 

Dianne and her beautiful Sycamore Vest knit with a tweedy linen and wool blend. Beautiful job Dianne! Dianne
Dianne Dianne and her oh so lovely shawl knit from now discontinued Lanica from Fleece Artist. This single ply merino is so soft when knitted up, we are sure this shawl will be one of Dianne's favourites!

Kelly Kelly and her lovely linen tunic. Knit using Euroflax sport from Louet, this piece just screams sunshine and summertime. Great job!
Kelly's take on the Baby Bootah pattern from Perl Grey. She used self striping yarn for the hat, jacket and booties, and a matching solid for the bottoms, with just the last little bit done in the self striping. Love the whole look Kelly! Kelly
Kelly Kelly and her completed Capelet Tank. The original is knit using hemp for a lovely summer piece, but Kelly has knit her using two strands ofFleece Artist & Handmaiden Fine Yarns O'Paca for the capelet part, and O'Paca and Ultra Alpaca Fine for the bottom. The O'Paca makes the cowl light as air but soft and warm while the Ultra Alpaca makes the bottom firm enough that you can wear it right next to your skin. Stunning job Kelly!
