September Sweaters


We are featuring sweaters and sweater patterns this month. It is already chilly here in Southeast Idaho and looks to be a cold winter so now is the time to start knitting those warm and wonderful sweaters. Meg will be doing two garments aimed at keeping her daughters warm and you can knit-a-long on Saturdays if you are interested. The first is a beautiful piece by Sanae Gunji. This design is from the Grand Prize Winner of the 2012 Zealana design challenge. It is a “loose-fitting, asymmetrically shaped pullover with a center leaf cable panel and ribbed edges." The second is called "Sprig" and is included in Vogue Patterns fall 2013 collection.

Men's Patterns

Knitting a sweater for your man used to be a sure fire way to get rid of him but not anymore. With the new soft wools and stylish patterns being an accomplished knitter is more likely to bring all the boys to your yard. Stop in to see the many books and pamphlets we have for men and boys and look at the gorgeous, rich selections of yarn that your guy will love.

New Sweater Ideas

Sweaters, cowls, capes, jackets and pullovers are filling up the pages of the new fall knitting books. We are amazed at the beautiful selections and exquistite color choices that are available this fall. Come in and take a look. If there is a specific pattern you would like help with we have people who are willing to assist you. You might want to drop by on a Thursday evening and chat with our regulars. It looks to be an exciting fall as far as knitting goes.

Beginning Knit

Deb Reams is putting together a pattern for a scarf using Ella Rae's Seasons yarn that will help beginners learn basic and decorative stitches while making a garment that is not only beautiful but useful as well. Seasons is a wool/acrylic blend that is soft and subtley shaded to best show off this interesting scarf.
