New store samples! July 4, 2012 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas, Store Samples

Despite all of our shopping at the TNNA Trade Show in Columbus (and there was a lot of it!), Lisa and I both managed to squeeze in a little knitting time here and there and arrived back home with two new finished store samples!

Melody’s Shawl by Melody Moore

Melody’s Shawl by Melody Moore (Morehouse Farms) is a great pattern that lends itself well to modifications in both yarn choice and size. My decision to knit this up was inspired by finding Knittimo?s version of the pattern on Ravelry and I love the way it turned out using SweetGeorgia’s Merino Silk Lace and Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze!

Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief by Orange Flower

Lisa knit up a gorgeous summer version of the Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief by Orange Flower using Habu Textiles Tsumugi Silk in a deep blue/green colourway. Beautifully lightweight, this shawl knits up quickly and provides perfect respite in air conditioned spaces and outside on cooler summer evenings.
