Entrelac Evening

I love the look of this shawl - designed by KyleAnn Williams Knitting with KyleAnn

The Entrelac features each of the Merino-5 colors Merino-5 yarn in a lovely interaction, and you know the pattern will
be "user-friendly" as error-free, clear explanations are a key feature of KyleAnn's designs.

Hooray for Kala!

I am so thrilled to share this with you!

Kala P (whose blog is VeganCraftastic has made her Sock Design Debut with this handsome man's sock in Maizy Earth Maizy Colors

The nifty design is called "Trail Mix"... and the sock has the approval of "he who will wear the socks"... so we know they're a hit!
Watch for the Pattern, coming soon at free patterns

I must confess, that with my own DH becoming Vegan, Kala has been a great resource ... so also
look for recipes on her blog! Yum.

Panda Soy Heartstrings

Susan D, owner of Crystal Palace Yarns, has a special treat for you... a new yarn called Panda Soy , which will have it's "official" debut at the upcoming TNNA.

Jackie ES Heartstrings is one of the first to try it out, and has used her marvelous design "Swirling Lace Anklets" (A34) to showcase the yarn.
