Manic-In Monday

Okay - winter is trying hard to make an appearance here. We've been having rain, freezing rain and sleet all morning. At 9am I went out to the storage shed to get some ice melter for the walks, and successfully landed a triple lutz/double toe loop in the parking lot. Thankfully the melter is doing it's job, but we do still have a lot of little icicles decorating the building. Be careful out there!

Our gal must have felt the promise of cold, damp air, as this week she's sporting an awesome kimono jacket and a warm, yet simple, scarf. No doubt she will stay cozy!
Scarf Pattern & Yarn: The Liwen Ribbed Scarf is a free pattern we offer on the website and uses just one skein each of the Stacy Charles Luna yarn and Araucania Liwen yarn. This is a great gift!

Sweater Pattern & Yarn: The Plymouth Kimono #1530 Pattern has been a top seller here at the shop. It is such a simple project combining garter and stockinette stitch fabric in 5 rectangles that are sewn together to create this amazing Kimono-style coat. The pattern is shown in (and calls for) Plymouth Encore, which is a wonderfully economical yarn that's a machine washable blend of wool & acrylic.

Make it More Luxurious: Want to upgrade to a slightly more decadent yarn choice? It would be fabulous knit in the Debbie Bliss Cahsmerino Aran yarn! It would be just a bit warmer with the luxury of soft cashmere, but still machine washable.

Want More Texture? Try Plymouth Pattern #1531 - very similar, but with a different texture stitch on the body.
