sweetgeorgia Party of Five

May 11, 2018

Gradient and color sets are becoming ever more popular as designers are creating patterns specifically for them.  SweetGeorgia has created Party of Five which are color coordinated gradient sets.  We brought them in on the Tough Love Sock, which is a blend of Superwash Merino and Nylon, and each set contains 5 skeins of 105 yards.  They would knit up beautifully into Polygrade, which we have a class scheduled on 6/15, and Striped Cowl.  The possibilities really are endless as to what these color sets can be used for!

October KAL

irish shawl kay hopkins

Irish Shawl by local designer Kay Hopkins was inspired by a visit to Ireland: the stitches are reminiscent of the rugged and rocky moors criss-crossed with rock walls, the Cliffs of Moher (aka the “Cliffs of Insanity” from the movie Princess Bride) with its fortress castle at the very top, and the most incredible Tree of Life jewelry designs at an outdoor market in Howth.  

This shawl is knit end-to-end in a completely seamless manner and will look great in fingering weights from local dyers Bumblebirch and Canon Hand Dyes. The pattern is easily adjusted to any size by simply adding or reducing repeat sections. The diagonal bias of the main shawl body really shows off hand-dyed yarns but is equally stunning in a solid color.

She even wrote a travel blog about it on Ravelry.

Join us on Fridays from 4-6pm or Sundays 3-5pm and choose any of the three designs from the Celtic Shawl Collection.
