Here’s another group of beautiful finished knits from our friends and clients, brought gleefully into the shop for show and tell.
Kathie came in recently wearing a completed Stole made in the delightful Isager Alpaca 2. She had so enjoyed the project that she came back to get enough yarn for a second Stole in a different color combination. She’s not the first to cast on immediately for a second Stole… the meditative simplicity of the pattern and the exquisite softness of the yarn can make this project addictive. What nine colors of Alpaca 2 would you put together?
Margie has finished another large shawl, Dusk, from Grace Anna Farrow’s The Fine Line, a collection of shawl patterns using Isager yarns.
Dusk is a square shawl, made by knitting a large garter stitch square, then picking up stitches around its edges and working a wavy lace pattern as a deep border. Margie’s Dusk shawl is made in Cascade 220 Fingering and finished with a bright, contrasting i-cord edging.
Albina has been busy knitting these two scarves for some dear friends. One is all in seed stitch, made with Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine in a heathered purple shade. The other, I’m flattered to say, is North Arrow, a pattern I wrote and self-published on Ravelry last March. Albina used String Theory Bluestocking and Cascade Heritage Silk to knit her North Arrow.
Thanks to all for the show and tell! It’s such a pleasure to see Hillsborough Yarn Shop yarns grown up into stunning garments like these.
