This free pattern was written with Rowan Alpaca Chunky in mind. But the stitch pattern can be used with almost any yarn. The bigger the yarn, the snuggli-er it will be. And the faster you can knit it! The stitch pattern is reversible, so there’s no wrong side.
While we were on a trip to harvest firewood, we came across a large herd of Rocky Mountain Bighorn Sheep–what a treat! These sheep aren’t for wool, of course, but they are gorgeous. These two big rams were leading about 15 ewes and kids. If you look closely in the picture you can see another immature ram (the other white rear end) and the legs and lower body of a smaller kid behind the two dominant males.
New items are just starting to come in, so many of them aren’t on the website yet. Here’s some of the news on what is coming!
Blocking Wires and T Pins!
Sometimes simple is better. Not an overpriced kit –these are the real deal. The wires come as a set of 12 rust free bronze wires suitable for any fiber at any gauge. Use the T Pins to stabilize the wires at the correct angle and distance. These are economical and effective.
Our favorite! If you think cotton is just for dishcloths, you haven’t met Super 10, the superior choice for DK weight cotton for both crochet and knit
Westminster Fibers have come up with 2 new booklets, and each has very wearable patterns that will become staples in your wardrobe.
Hands Down FavoriteWe had a sample of this vest in #3995 Persian Red at Stitches West and literally could not meet the demand! This is a real winner in a simple lace pattern, you will love it no matter which one of the more than 80 colors you choose.Super 10 has so many great qualities: it’s machine wash and dry, won’t split, won’t pill, won’t shrink, it’s soft, colorfast, and has a permanent shine.
Of course it’s fabulous for adult garments, including shawls and sweaters, but you can use Super 10 for household items (placemats, pillows, handtowels), baby items (blankets, hats) and of course kids love it!
