In the Fiber Room



Have you seen Brooklyn Tweed's Winter 14 Look Book?  We really have our eye on the beautiful 'Kelpie' - a 'modern triangular Hap Shawl'.  How pretty is this?














And while it is very lovely in Brooklyn Tweed's fingering weight Loft, what really has us going is the thought of knitting it while replacing 'Stormcloud' with Poseidon's millspun and the contrasting colors with some of our Border Leicester cross millspun that we've naturally-dyed.
What do you think of this combination?  It's (left to right) Poseidon, Goldenrod, Hibiscus, Jewelweed, Hibiscus2 and Goldenrod2.  We just might have to take the leap and buy that pattern today.

  1. I have seen the new look book and am trying to finish up a few wip's so I can order a new pattern from it myself.
    I love the combination of yarns you have put together, especially the goldenrod.
    It will be a beautiful shawl and I can't wait to see it.

  2. I still have all the beautiful yarn I purchased from you... waiting... until I can find a class I can afford to attend so I can learn to knit better and make something beautiful from it...
