Secret Christmas Knitting

I am slowly and secretly working on a sweater for my new husband for Christmas!
Sorry for the terrible picture, but I have yet to figure out how to make a sweater progress shot look good!
This is Mission Falls tri colour yarn. I have a great love affair with Mission Falls and last year took Chris into the store to pick out what colour he would like and this is what we came out with...it's beautiful.
The pattern is Tom from the queensland collection. Ever since I met Jane Ellison at Kniterary during a workshop I have wanted to try some of her patterns...I love her simple yet classy approach and this sweater is both.
I have 15 of 26 inches of the back knit...whoo! I am hoping to have this done by mid October...Crossing my fingers and moving forward!!

September and Jaywalkers

Summer is just speeding by!!

The summer lull is over and new stock is arriving almost daily!

The new Berroco Blackstone Tweed is devine! Imagine a tweed without the scratch factor! Angora and mohair are added to the wool and my what a feel. There is a sample sweater in the shop to try on. I have already sold out of the booklet but more will be in soon!

Lots of new sock yarn in!
I am knitting a pair of Jaywalker socks out of the Berroco Sox and they are turning out fabulous! To look at the ball you would never expect the result!

I have it in 2 other colourways too!

There is more Peruvia and new colours of Ultra Alpaca as well.

Still to come in....Debbie Bliss, Handmaiden and Manos.

I have put some new fall classes on the website and there are more to add. The schedule will be made up as soon as Vickie and I have a moment together to work on it.

If you haven't been in the shop lately lots of changes have been happening so make sure to pop on in!

See you soon!
