We are having a Fun Friday! We've chosen this day to launch the Cast On for our December KAL, Camden Hills Poncho. It's a poncho with sleeves, so we have affectionately nicknamed it a "swoncho" - mix of sweater of poncho. It has some very nice feminine touches like a lace border, longer back and some nice detail at the neck. It will be the perfect thing to wrap up in on chilly days!
The pattern is found in Berroco Portfolio Vol. 4 which features patterns written for Ultra Wool. It would look equally good using Ultra Alpaca. We have a good selection of colors in both of.

Our Project Inspiration this week is for a really adorable Little Girl's Shrug by Knitting Pure and Simple. It's a sweater we've had in the store since we opened, but we reknit it in Berroco Comfort in a cheery berry color, and finished it off with a ceramic button handmade and painted by A Merry Heart, a local company run by a customer! Knitting Pure and Simple writes a really good pattern for sweaters, making it a great option if you're wanting to try your first sweater. This shrug is very customizable to have longer sleeves or a longer body to make it more of a sweater.
We chose Berroco Comfort because it is a really good for little ones. It's blend of Fine Acrylic and Fine Nylon which makes it very incredibly soft and washable. It comes in a palette of vibrant colors and also pastels.
