Brickless

This month we chose a light shawlette that is perfect to knit during the last hurrahs of summer and to wear come fall. Brickless by Martina Behm is an asymmetrical triangle with rows that get longer and longer as you go. The beauty of it is that you can keep knitting until you run out of yarn or it's as big as you want. Originally written for worsted, we decided to lighten it up a bit by using a sport weight yarn--Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool. It's 100% American Wool and superwash! This month, with purchase of the pattern, Dyed in the Wool will be 15% off. Come check out this great yarn!

Ewden Sweater

It's officially fall and time to get to work on your sweaters! October's project of the month is Ewden by Sarah Hatton. This sweater is knit in Rowan Alpaca Merino DK. It is so soft, squishy and feels amazing against your skin (for those of you that tend to be a little sensitive to natural fibers). If you are familiar with Rowan's yarns, it is a lighter version of their popular Lima. The construction is worked flat so seaming is involved, but don't let that scare you. Seamed sweaters make for a nice finished project that the seamless sweaters just can't give you. As always, the Alpaca Merino DK will be 15% off for this month. In addition, because the pattern is in the Rowan Winterscapes book, we will be giving you 15% off the book, too!
