Happy Valentine's Day!

With love pouring off our needles and hooks all year long, Valentine's Day is a perfect holiday to celebrate with fiber arts.

Most of you know that I (Anne) am expecting a little buddle of joy in about 5 weeks. So, my Valentine to myself is making a cute little breath of a project that I have long wanted to make, Elizabeth Zimmerman Heart Hat. Though the pattern is written to fit an adult head, I have always imagined this sweet little bonnet on a little baby girl. I am working it in Berroco Comfort DK with a US 6 16" circular. The pattern can be found in Knitting Workshop. It should be done in another 10 rows and then there will be i-cord ties and edging. So much fun!

Yarn Highlight: Liberty Wool

We've recently received something new and exciting from Classic Elite Yarns, a beautiful, soft, and machine washable new worsted weight wool called Liberty Wool!

It's so soft and lovely, I love it! I think it would be fantastic for kid's projects, or something for you! There are a couple of really cute patterns that Classic Elite has designed for this yarn that we have available here at the shop with the purchase of this great yarn, and keep checking in the store, because new colors will be coming every month!
