I hope everyone had a super Thanksgiving, spending lots of time with family and friends. I was in Indiana where many of my family members have moved to. My family’s also a bit “mixed up,” the “new” American family, with lots of Korean, Chinese, Peruvian, Brazilian and African American members – along with those whose ancestry goes back to before the Revolutionary War. I love it all – Kim chi on Thanksgiving eve and Turkey on Thanksgiving…..
Here’s a niece of my sister-in-law’s, showing her cousin how to knit on huge needles. Hannah’s a student who is including knitting in her final art project as part of an installation (large art exhibit).
12 Days of Christmas
….and Chanukah, Kwanza, Winter Solstice, etc……. Whatever you celebrate, we have 12 free patterns just for you. Everything from accessories to baby items to toys to door ornaments as Caron’s holiday season gift to you. If you haven’t signed up for Caron Connections, you can do so at the Caron website – and go to the 12 Days of Christmas archive for your free copies of the patterns.
New in Spa and Country
The Sanibel Wrap, designed by Melissa Matthay and knitted in Spa Rose Bisque, is comprised of two eyelet pattern stitches, one for the body (which is cast on lengthwise) and one for the edging (which is knitted crosswise). The softness of Spa makes this wrap work well in summer – or in warmer climates – but also is a wonderful accent over any winter jacket or coat.
Designed by Doris Chan in multiple colors of Country, the Rockland Throw is crocheted in one of the most interesting motifs I’ve ever seen. Be sure to check out the close-up of the stitch where you can see how well six colors of Country work so well together.
