It started last summer with my Girasole and has continued through a couple of Multnomahs, a Traveling Woman, and two Mara’s. My list of favorited shawls on Ravelry keeps growing. (I’m partial to the mini-shawls/shawlettes. Full sized shawls? I think they look great on everyone else, but they look funny on me.) I was so excited to get this gorgeous shawl in the mail from my friend Claudia. It’s a pattern that I had never seen before, and I love the way she took three different colors of Wollmeise and blended them into this piece. (Wouldn’t you like to be Claudia, with a whole workshop full of Wollmeise to pick from?) This is one of those great pieces where you put it on like a bib, cross the ends in back, and bring them around to the front again. Or you can just wrap it around and around. Or you could wear it on your shoulders. Many options. I love it. If you’re on Ravelry, you can find the pattern here. It’s called Septembertuch.
We do have more Wollmeise in-house, waiting to be put up for you. Why are we waiting? Because we have the video-sized mailing boxes on backorder with the post office. Since many of you get one or two skeins in a Wollmeise update, we use a lot of those boxes! We’re also waiting on more Wollmeise, which is stuck in Customs in Chicago. So we’ll try to do a few updates at random times over the next couple of weeks, as things arrive.
Tonight, we put up other new things, which are also beautiful! You’ll find:
3 AM Enchantments Petite KIP Bags
Fiesta Boomerang and Baby Boomerang
Studio June Starstruck (new base)
The Sanguine Gryphon Skinny Bugga (um … gone already)
Hand Maiden Swiss Mountain Sea Sock (7 more new colors)
Puffin & Co Knitting Accessories
Now that the Olympics are over, maybe I can get back to my regularly scheduled knitting progress. I’m impressed with all of the projects that you all were able to accomplish in the past 17 days!
