Shawl Knitting Time is All the Time

Posted by Caroline Hershey

This is the 400M Sprint designed during the Olympics. This is Denise’s knit with a new gradient yarn called Trigato.

I have started one in the Chincoteague Colors Bay collection, color Blue Crab. Love the lace edge.

Since putting in our garden ponds, we have been entertained with tons of frogs. This one seems to have taken kicking back in the summer sun seriously as he just floats the day away. They are so funny!

44 Shades of Fun

Posted by Caroline Hershey

I am having so much fun with this pattern, 44 Shades of Fun, I thought I would share. I’m nowhere near finished but between the yarn, Seasons by Ella Rae, and the pattern, it won’t take me long. We just received new colors in the Seasons bulky yarn and hope to have them on the website this week.

Our Beauty Berry bush is really full right now. Wonder how long it will take the birds to strip it?

Brail Hat

Posted by Caroline Hershey

I was totally speechless when Denise showed me this hat. Truly I don’t know why I should have been because I know what an excellent knitter she is. She decided that her relative who had been blind since birth would enjoy a hat that had his name written on it in brail. So she designed the hat, complete with prototype, and here it is.

Using beads to form the letters in brail, she worked out the chart for the name reaching around the hat. What an incredible gift! Denise said there must be other knitters with blind relatives/friends who would like to do the same thing. So she will be publishing this pattern on Ravelry so that anyone can work out the letters in brail and make a lovely gift also. What a talent! Thank you Denise!

Stephen West Shawl

Kay knitted this Stephen West shawl which we all loved. I believe it’s called Daybreak and is her husband’s favorite scarf.

So glad for cooler weather. How about you? That of course means you need to be starting your knitting for Christmas gift giving immediately. Have you at least got your list made?

PA National Quilt Extravaganza

Posted by Caroline Hershey

We are heading out this week for the quilt festival in Oaks, PA which is right outside of Philadelphia. The show will run from Thursday through Sunday at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center. There are always exquisite quilts to view, materials to tempt all quilters and then there’s me, with the most beautiful yarns in Chincoteague Colors you have seen. (I’m not too biased.) Do stop by our booth!

The shop on Chincoteague will be closed this week, reopening on Wednesday, Sept. 21st.

Here’s my latest shawl which used two balls of Hempathy yarn plus one of Uluru. The pattern is the Delovely Shawlette  available free on Ravelry. It is knitted beginning with the lace edging which, while knitting it, seems never ending but with beautiful results.

Sarah’s Nostaligia

Posted by Caroline Hershey

Sarah knitted her shawl, Nostalgia, out of Ranco, a lovely yarn she bought here at our Sweetheart Sale in February (that was a mighty fine sale wasn’t it!) You can find the pattern on Ravelry but alas, all our Ranco was sold. It’s a fingering wt, so I’m sure another variegated yarn would do just fine. Perhaps one of Ella Rae’s Lace Merino colors?
