I have had the privilege of meeting many talented and generous knitters over the years. It has always astounded me how open and giving most fiber people are with their knowledge and time, and this has been very apparent at Stash. Many people have offered up their talents to knit or crochet samples for the shop, and for that I am deeply grateful. Not just because having samples helps sell yarn (which it does), but because we are all pressed for good crafting time. That someone would give up their personal knitting time to work on something for my shop is beyond generous. Thank you all so very much.
And now, for the introductions. Meet Brandy, otherwise known as the Evening Dusk Bolero by Leigh Radford:
This knits up in just over one skein of Imperial Yarn’s Bulky 2-strand Pencil Roving, and would make a great layering piece over a dress or long-sleeved t-shirt. The fir button is from Candace at One of A Kind Buttons.
And here is Aly, the Cedar Leaf Shawlette by Alana Dakos. I have long admired this pattern, and now I get to throw it around my shoulders whenever the shop gets to feeling a little bit chilly! This pattern uses Knitted Wit’s Polwarth Silk DK and is shown in the Cedar color way.
This is a wonderful pattern for playing around with color combinations. Whether you prefer high contrast or more subtle combinations, mixing colors yields beautiful one of a kind results in this shawl.
Stop into the shop to see these samples in person! And don’t be shy: they like to be touched and tried on…
