close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Earth and Sea

Holst Noble and Coast have been gaining a fair bit of attention in the shop, but we have been lacking a sample! Emily to the rescue. Using a mix of the two yarns in some very appropriate colors, she is creating the Terre et Mer shawl. The lovely triangular shawl design is the perfect use for these light and lofty yarns.
This is going to be an ideal piece to wrap up under a jacket in the spring when our weather goes from chilly to balmy in the course of just a few hours. She will add the navy blue as the final color, and I can't wait to see this all blocked out and draped over one of our shop ladies. Look at all that crunchy texture.
Many folks comment on our inspiring and unusual samples when they come through our space. I agree with them! We do a great job of choosing stylish, wearable items that you might not be seeing in every other shop. Thank you to our sample knitters for having such wonderful taste!
