Knit Wear

Much to our surprise we opened the new Knit Wear magazine yesterday and saw The Fibre Company's new ad for Tundra.  Tundra is the newest addtion to The Fibre Company's collection of beautiful yarns. Chelsea Yarns is carrying Tundra in all 12 colors and we are sure it will be one of your new bulky favorites for the upcoming Fall/Winter season!


Look there we are fourth down!!!

I am going to cast on for Courtney Kelley's Chevron Vest!

Chelsea loves mysteries........

Kristen Kapur Mystery Shawl KAL clue #3

In spite of our busy schedule, I was able to do a little knitting over the weekend in my quest to solve the mystery.  I am having so much fun knitting this shawl.  The Handmaiden Casbah Sock Yarn is fabulous to work with and I can't wait to share the colors with you very soon.
Off to conquer the next clue.....

Mystery Yarn......


We had such a good time "trying" to pick out a color for the 
Kirsten Kapur 2012 Mystery Shawl KAL. 
After having barely finished the Madtosh KAL by the skins of our teeth we decided to join another!
We received a HUGE shipment of Handmaiden on Friday and just couldn't keep our little paws off of it!




What better way to "test" out some Handmaiden than to pair it with a Mystery Shawl KAL!


All the Casbah Sock and some of the Sea Silk on the right!
We couldn't fit it all on the table! And the table is HUGE!




The start of the first clue! Using a 6 needle. Still have till Friday to finish. Absolutely love the Casbah Sock! It's so soft. It really feels like there's more cashmere in there than they say. Hmmmm.
Stay tuned for the rest of the mystery!
