Community Project - Chemo Caps

Handmade Healing Anne D. agreed to let us share her pictures of some of the chemo caps she made for her friend.  Because Anne used yarn she bought from us, she will receive a coupon for 10% off.  If you would like to see your work featured here (and receive a coupon), read this post for details. Anne sent us an email asking for recommendations for yarn for chemo caps.  It needed to be very soft and machine washable.  Among others, we suggested the Juniper Moon Cumulus, which is a delightful brushed cotton. Anne said she loved crocheting with the Cumulus.  We think the hats turned out great, and we hope that they bring joy and comfort to her friend....

Making the S17 Our Own

AKA Meet the Mullet! David and I had a lot of fun brainstorming about how to decorate the S17 for the Skein Shop showroom.  In fact, we had so much fun that we found ourselves with too many ideas, which is an excellent problem to have.  In the end, we opted for a "mullet" themed wheel - business in the front, party in the back! For the front, we decided to try wood burning to keep the color palette simple and classy.  We put the names of the parts on the main wheel itself and our logo on the treadle.  My favorite touch, however, is the front upright.  There we put markings that will function as a ruler and protractor...

Community Project - Pinstripe Perfection

Jane W. shared photos with us of her Pinstripe Perfection baby blanket.  Since she got the yarn from us, she'll receive a coupon for 10% off.  If you'd like to see your work featured here, please check this post for details. Jane chose Juniper Moon Cumulus for her project because she wanted something very soft and machine washable.  The brushed cotton of Cumulus is definitely cuddly enough for the perfect blankie! We love the sophisticated palette she chose.  This is a beautiful piece of knitting that will last long past the baby years.  Thanks very much for letting us share your work, Jane!  We look forward to seeing what you make next :)

Community Project - Anonymous Shawl

Jillena R. was kind enough to share her project photos with us.  Since she got the yarn from us, she'll be receiving a coupon for 10% off.  If you'd like to see your work featured here and get a coupon, read this post for details. I test knit the the Anonymous Shawl for The Wool Club. I love Verena’s designs for their texture and simplicity. My favorite thing about this shawl is the juxtaposition of the garter stitch with the crosshatch stitch sections - they really complement each other and create such a nicely draping fabric. Juniper Moon Farm Findley DK is truly the perfect yarn for this pattern. I wear my Anonymous Shawl both as a scarf and as...

Community Project - Lacy Valance

Thank you to Julie V. for allowing us to share her photo!  She'll be receiving a coupon for 10% off because she got the yarn from us.  If you would like to have your project featured (and get a coupon in gratitude), please read this post for all the juicy details. Julie used the one of Queensland Collection's new spring yarns - Tide.  She made a valance for her bathroom window by modifying this curtain pattern. Julie says that she was planning on knitting a whole panel, but the way the yarn was hanging, she thought a valance would work better.  She thinks she'll use her leftovers to make a scarf. Great job, Julie!  Your valance is absolutely lovely :)
