The shop will be closed today, but all who work at KOST are enjoying working on and planning new projects for you!
Jonnie is working on this applique piece for her new Beginning Applique Class that starts in February. She will be hand quilting her finished sample! Love the fabrics and colors!
Speaking of color, Jennifer is brightening up these gray days! The photo above is a tunic Jennifer has completed and is writing up as a pattern for you. Below left, Jennifer is finishing up her second gauntlet of a pair knit in our Malibrigo Rios. Below right is her crocheted version of the Amalfi poncho. Kathy is teaching the knitted version in February. Maybe Jennifer will do the same for crochet!
We are open today from 10 am- 6 pm. The 6 pm is subject to change if wintery precipitation starts sooner than the current forecasters are predicting.
I’ve got several things on my needles and by my sewing machine to work on, but starting a new project is always fun. Today I am bringing home corduroy to make one last cozy girl’s dress ( I love Oliver + S patterns) and maybe some yarn to start this new project. The pattern is available for us to download for you through our in-store program with Ravelry. Come see what yarn I’m choosing!
This month’s Dream Club selection is Jilly with Cashmere, in yummy, denimy shades of blue!
This is a fingering weight yarn, 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon. The nylon gives this yarn the strength to make a fabulous pair of socks!
I love the sweet neckerchief/kerchief! My first knitting project in Girl Scouts was a triangle kerchief knit from RedHeart Yarn, in the rainbow variegated colorway–hey it was the 60’s and I was 8! I think I’ll wear this one as a neck scarf with the triangle in front and the ties in the back…
I have peeked at the pattern and love the stitch used for the vine on the mitts and kerchief. I’ll have a swatch started to show you how-to! See you in the morning!!
