Although it's a little late in the month, we do have a Winner for our Knitter of the Month for May. It's Linda Overly!! Linda, be sure to come in and pick up your $20 gift certificate. She brought in a couple of projects to share. A lightweight summer shawl she made out of Noro Yuzen. She used a simple pattern of K1, yo, K2tog. It's really beautiful and I'm sure she will get a lot of wear out of it.
She also brought in a baby blanket she made out of Plymouth Encore. The pattern was the Pine Forest Baby Blanket. It looks very soft and warm for a special little one.
Pat made this gorgeous shell using Mango Moon Mantra and Chakra. This was Plymouth Pattern #1601 that she redesigned using the beaded yarn on the top and non-beaded yarn on the bottom. Very nice job, Pat.
Pam made these fingerless gloves for her cousin who was graduating from college. She used Jawoll Magic yarn and used a pattern from the Not Just Socks book. She said he absolutely loved the gloves. Good yarn choice, Pam.
Mary made a cute toddler jumper using Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. Pattern was Plymouth #C163. Great job, Mary. It's adorable.
Marilyn used Classic Elite Provence to make Just One More Row's Heartbeat Sweater. She suggested that picking up with a size smaller needle and knitting the ridges with a size larger needle will help for a better fit. Good advice!
And she also made the famous Berroco felted coasters out of Berroco Jasper. She used a size 8 needle in order to get 4 coasters out of a skein. Using 2 different colorways gave just enough leftovers for a 9th coaster. These are great coasters to make for gift-giving. They are quick to make and do a super job of absorbing the moisture off glasses.
Well, I hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you for all the well wishes I have received during my illness. I feel so blessed to have come through that dark time. It's good to be back at the shop.
