We’re pretty sure once you try Arranmore Light, you’ll love it as much as we do. That’s why we have prepared some to-go for you!
The Good Fortune Wrist Warmers pattern is my first original pattern. Through October, the only place you can find it is tucked into our Take Home Yarn Tasting of Arranmore Light. We’ve sold the last of the kits made up with the color Shamrock (shown above). What color of Arranmore should we pack into the kits next? Maybe a blue like River Esque or natural like St. Clair or the driftwood, called Cronan? There are lots of colors to choose from. Comment to make a request!
Here are the wrist warmers knit in the black tweed, Malin Head. If any of the techniques used in the pattern are new to you (provisional crochet cast on, Shadow Wrap short rows, 3-needle bind off, or Kitchener Stitch), I’ll be giving demos on demand on Saturday, October 14, during regular shop hours, 11-4.
Did you get our recent email or have you checked in lately with our Ravelry Group? If so, here is a familiar face. We’re having a Monsterknits Knit-Along in October for Cally Monster’s shawl designs. We met Cally this summer at TNNA in the Baah Yarn booth. Purchase patterns directly from Cally’s Ravelry store in October and save 25% with the code “boo,” a special Monsterknits treat just for GYI. (Thank you, Cally!) KAL details are here. We carry La Jolla, the fingering weight from Baah that Cally loves for her shawls, and you’ll save 15% on your 2+ skein purchase for the KAL. Cally is wearing her Plaid is the New Fad.
No, we don’t have all those colors (the picture was taken at TNNA), but the ones we do have (including the 3 used in Cally’s Plaid) were chosen for us by dyer Mira Cole herself.
Here is Cally’s Freeze Frame, looking like two very different shawls, thanks to different yarn choices, two solids vs. a solid and one of Mira’s Dipped & Dappled skeins.
Here’s the one I’ve just started, If One Can, Toucan! (That’s Mira on the left in the background.)
Sign up for the KAL, which ends November 18, at the shop or in our Ravelry group. And yes, of course, there will be a jaw-dropping PRIZE for one lucky finisher whose name is drawn at random.
Speaking of prizes, Sharon snapped these pictures at the Luzerne County Fair last month of some of her winners and also be-ribboned pieces from Tina and Portia. Congratulations, ladies!
Joanne deserves a tip of the hat, not only for her Checkered Chapeau, her own pattern, done in Ultra Wool from Berroco…
…but also for her Waverly Weekend Cowl from Donna Brooks. Inasmuch as this free pattern is written for worsted weight yarn, used by virtually all 221 Ravelers who have posted their projects thus far, using a silk/mohair like our Drizzle from Sugar Bush Yarns was genius!
(Thank you to Catherine for the pictures of Joanne’s work.)
