As we settle into the winter months when most of us spend more time inside, it can be a good opportunity to start a project that may require a little more focus. May we suggest a project?

We are fortunate to have Aubree on loan in the shop for a few weeks. This is a beautiful cabled cardigan by designer Sarah Solomon -- a classic style but updated with a slightly cropped length and cables that are interesting but not overdone. It was designed for, and knit with, Manos' Alpaca Heather -- a DK weight, hand-dyed alpaca and wool blend. We have many options for DK weight yarn. If you would like a solid-color wool yarn that can be machine washed, there are blends such as Plymouth's Encore DK, and Berroco's Vintage DK, as well as 100% wools such as Peer Gynt by Sandnes Garn, Berroco's Ultra Wool DK and Plymouth's Select DK Superwash Merino.

Ella Rae's Heathered Merino Superfine is so scrumptiously soft!

Sometimes you need a project that just gives you the flow of knitting. The fairly simple free shawl pattern Kaipuu may be the project that gives you that. We used almost the whole skein for the body of the shawl, which features a simple eyelet pattern, and almost a full skein for the lace section. If you are a new knitter, this may be a good crescent-shaped shawl pattern for you because you can simplify the edging if you want. You may want to follow the pattern link to see how lovely it looks in natural colors. This fingering weight yarn contains 20% nylon and is machine washable, making it suitable for a special pair of socks!

When we did inventory on January 1, we spent a lot of time in our button area. Besides counting buttons, we made three large button orders!

We also put about 25% of our buttons on sale at 50%. These buttons include styles we cannot reorder, overstocks, and some buttons (such as some shell styles) that were just a bit expensive. As our new buttons come in, more of our regularly priced buttons may find their way to the 50% baskets. As you finish your projects that need buttons -- or if you just love buttons -- come in and check out what you may find!
