News from The Yarn Garden!

Head Gardener's Log, May 24th

Make It Monday!

Think ahead to the gift giving season! Hats make a GREAT gift for almost everyone on your list, and this cozy hat only takes ONE BALL of Air by Wool Addicts. Air is a bulky wool and nylon blend that has a super soft, almost velvet-like texture. All four of us are wearing the same size, the large adult, in color #1001-67. Very slouchy on the kiddos, less so on Jason and I!

Bulky Waffle Hat, modeled by the Potters

Get a headstart on your holiday knitting!
Originally $14.95, now just $10 A BALL.
PLUS we will include a printed copy of the pattern for FREE!
Add a Furreal Pom and you've got a gift for just a bit over $20.

What's On My Needles

The Coral Sunrise Shawl (aka the purple demon) has been sucking up all my knitting time! This is the current KAL project that I am hosting and I admittedly set our goals WAY too high! Other than the pressure to finish it within my self-imposed deadline, it has been an enjoyable knit. The psychology of casting on a large number of stitches and decreasing, with each row getting shorter, is a nice change! Beyond that, I whipped out that Bulky Waffle hat above in just a couple nights. I'm looking forward to casting on a poncho for the KAL and squeezing in a new summer tee as well. What's been on your needles (or hook)?
