New store sample: Livezey November 26, 2013 – Posted in: New in Store, Project Ideas, Store Samples
When we spotted the Livezey House Wrap pattern on Ravelry in October we immediately thought of knitting it up as a store sample using Quince and Co.?s newest yarn Owl ? a soft and lofty blend of alpaca and wool. It’s all finished now and we’re so pleased with how it turned out. The Owl yarn is a dream to work with and the 19 soft colourways work beautifully together making the selection of unique and complementary combinations a breeze. The finished wrap is cozy, pretty, and warm – just the thing to keep the chill at bay through the cold winter months.
