All show and tell on the blog is virtual, I know; nothing compares to seeing finished pieces in person, held up proudly by their creators. This edition of show and tell is particularly virtual, though, in that these finished knits never made it into the shop. All were baby gifts, and had to be rushed off to their recipients rather than brought to the shop for our admiring eyes. Luckily, these knitters were able to snap a few photos before sending off their finished pieces, so we still get to share them with you here.
Abby made this pair of raglan sweaters for a pair of twins, the children of Syracuse grads, one of whom teaches at UNC–hence the color scheme. Abby had a vision for these knit jerseys and designed them herself with a bit of help from Ann Budd’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters. She used GGH Tara, a bulky cotton yarn that is quick to knit and easy to wash.
Cynthia has been busy knitting hats for little Maggie, all using soft alpaca yarns in rosy hues. From top to bottom: a bulky baby cap in Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande, “Aran Baby Cap” in Plymouth Baby Alpaca DK, and “Alfalfa Baby Hat” in Misti Alpaca Tonos Worsted.
Thanks to Abby and Cynthia for sharing these sweet little knits, and thanks to everyone who comes in with something to show us; we love to see all that our customers are creating!
