Creedence by Corrina Ferguson is a fun-to-work worsted weight shawl. Our sample is worked in two skeins of Malabrigo Rios. If you love the beautiful colors of Rios and need an excuse to dive into a new small project, here it is. You might wonder about a worsted weight shawl for the warmer months, but it makes a perfect summer project ... small and easy to take along; or you might work in an air-conditioned space or enjoy time on your boat and need a shoulder cover-up. And because Rios is a superwash wool, it does not feel "woolly" -- you can wear it on a cool summer evening!

The pattern is worked from tip to tip and therefore you will use up all of your Rios with little to no leftovers. This pattern is charted and not written out. (Color #842, Ilusion, was used. These hand-dyed yarns vary from skein to skein and batch to batch.)

Coastal is a new sport/dk yarn from Elemental Affects that combines the best properties from domestic Shaniko wool, Belgian flax and mulberry silk to create the perfect summer yarn.

We have the full range of their debut offerings. Here is a link to their website where you can read about the origin of this yarn.

At the shop we are busy finishing up our current WIPs so some of us can start a project with this yarn. Reah Janise is swatching to design something with this yarn and Helen has decided on Alberta Summer -- a free pullover on Ravelry. Cheryl is still contemplating a pattern.

Looking for a unique gift? (Mother's Day is May 9.)

Of course any fiber person would love a beautiful skein of yarn! However, if you are looking for a non-yarn gift, we would like to bring your attention to two products -- gift ideas -- that are new to our shop.

The first is a collection of sturdy mugs made in the USA by Lenny Mud. The outside of these mugs come with various funny crocheting and knitting messages. Add to this a brightly colored inside, and a smile will surely emerge in a yarn lover's face!

The second is an elegant, yet durable notebook any knitter would love to receive. It is called My Knitting Notes, published by Laine Publishing. This is an "almost" blank book with standard abbreviations, needle sizes, knitter's graph paper and pages for project planning in a lovely clothbound hardcover.
