Gifts Issues

A couple of things went live today over at Interweave Press. Both their Crochet Accessories and Holiday Gifts are up for your reading and stitching pleasure.

Check out Tara's Tunisian Scarf in Crochet Accessories. Ellen Gormley designed this great one-skein project using Lorna's Laces Pearl in the Baltic Sea colorway. Pearl is a luxury fiber and this would make a stunning gift for somebody special. I like this yarn more and more all the time.

Then there are two projects using Lorna's Laces yarns in Interweave Holiday. The first is this slouchy hat designed by Katya Frankel.

It's called the Soft Ribbed Hat and it's made from our Angel. Angel is a 70% angora/30% wool blend and is shown here in the 56ns Fjord colorway.

Last up is the Anouschka Scarf by Mel Clark. It's made from our Helen's Lace in 55ns Butterscotch. Butterscotch is a nice, warm yellow that's going to be flattering on a wide range of skin tones.

Helen's Lace is 50% wool/50% silk and comes in big 1250 yard hanks. I'm thinking you'd have enough left over here to make a second project. I always love a twofer.

I want to send out a big thank you to all the designers here that made out yarns sing. And to Interweave for sharing them with you.

I always buy Interweave Holiday - can't wait to peruse that Helen's lace pattern - I have 4 skeins of lucious Butterscotch in Fishermans just waiting for a "worthy" project. I agree it is a great color and I bought 2 off the shelf at a not so LYS and had them order me two more so I could do a gansey or cardigan - I was amazed how well the 2 new skeins matched the two previously purchased skeins.
