Knit Eco Chic’s Cassandra is a traditional Christmas sweater that you’ll want to wear all winter long. Lindsay has created a festive, fitted garment with seed stitch accents and a ruffled collar. There’s also a neat hidden detail on the interior of each sleeve.
Sarah has changed her shop name from Sarah’s Spindle to Silk Road Needle Arts to better reflect her love of travel, the exotic and the antique. She’s also introduced some new alpaca yarns: an alpaca/silk/Cashmere blend that has a subtle shine, an alpaca/Merino twist with a rustic, handspun look, and a wild silk/linen/alpaca blend. In addition, there’s some new Cashmere Merino DK weight yarn, because as Sarah rightly points out, a person can never have too much Cashmere.
