New Store Samples – Color Affection, Easy Folded Poncho March 20, 2012 – Posted in: Project Ideas, Store Samples

Color Affection

Color Affection by Veera Välimäki is a gorgeous striped garter stitch wrap/shawl which is quick and completely fun to knit. This is addictive knitting at it’s best and, if you’re like me, you may find yourself wanting to cast on a second as soon as you finish!  Our sample is knit with SweetGeorgia’s CashLuxe Fine – a fingering weight blend of cashmere, merino, and a teeny bit of nylon. Lots of colours in stock – selecting your own personal combination is at least half the fun.

Easy Folded Poncho

As previously blogged, the Easy Folded Poncho by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas is a classic yet casual transitional piece perfect for layering.  This is a simple rectangle folded in half and partially seamed – the basic construction makes it a great option for those wanting a “mindless” project in between more challenging ones. And, while it may be simple, this poncho is a stunner. Our sample is knit with Rowan’s Felted Tweed DK –  a blend of merino, alpaca, and viscose (machine washable!).  Most colours in stock.
