Wonderland Yarn: Messenger Kit

As the days grow darker, we love to dive into new, colorful knitting projects. This Messenger Shawl by Wonderland Yarns is a shop favorite: the pattern is include with the yarn, and is both simple and fun to knit. And there are so many colors to choose from! The kit also comes with patterns for a hat and gloves, if cozier knitting is calling to you…

Either way, you’ll love these vibrant colors — perfect for chilly fall days!

Happy knitting!

Lazy Days Shawl Kit by Artyarns

IMG_0109A lazy knit-a-long… lazy because there’s no deadline or finish date! This beautiful little wrap would make a perfect gift for the holidays… so if you start now, you’ll have time to make gifts and one for yourself, too!

This luxurious yarn is knit in a simple pattern with an unusual construction… It’s worked in Merino Cloud (80% extra fine Merino/20% Cashmere) and a complementing Beading Silk or Beaded/Sequin Mohair for a bit of sparkle. Working with this yarn is a true treat. You can find more information about the knit-a-long on Ravelry here.

Happy knitting!
