Around the Shop in Several Samples

We have some fun samples in the shop right now.  Let's browse.

Sally created this beautiful cowl with the Gradient yarn we discussed a few weeks back.  She used a 3x1 rib to really show off the color changes.  We are out of this colorway, but there is more on the way, and we still have several lovely options.  This would be fun in Liberty Wool, too.
This is Sirle, a great little slouchy hat knit with the beautiful Classic Elite Vista, a 50/50 merino alpaca blend in the natural colorways of the MountainTop collection.

Ann, Our Lady of So Many Samples, has been a busy bee.  I am IN LOVE with the Fumior mitts by Julie Hoover in Manos Maxima.  We are optimistic that we can get a pair out of one skein (even though the pattern suggests two), so Ann is giving it a go.
Les Miserables is coming out at the end of the month.  Is there time to crank out a Les Mis scarf to wear to the movie?  We have a fresh batch of Cascade Alpaca Lace to get you going.
Jenni figured out how to make the Softwaves Magnum Cowl!  The knitting is simple, but the seaming is a challenge.  Come see Jenni at the shop for a tutorial.
The Wurm hat is so awesome.  The brim is doubled, so it is nice and cozy on the ears.  The slouch factor is just perfect, too.  Our sample is knit in Malabrigo Arroyo, which we have in some truly gorgeous colorways.
I have been wearing my Anna Karenina all over town and getting compliments every time.  I used a yarn that we no longer have in the shop, but it would be great in Arroyo, too.

There is so much more!  Come see us at the shop for even more inspiration and lots of great suggestions.
