Designer Caroline Hockenberry of Fibernate has transformed Kim’s popular speckled Ziggy Stardust colorway into an awesome garter stitch shawlette with a diamond lace border, perfect for throwing over your shoulders at an outdoor concert this summer. If you live near Alexandria, Virginia, Caroline is debuting the pattern tonight at her Friday Knit Night, with a discount on both the yarn and the pattern. The yarn and pattern are also 15% off over the next week purchased online.
The yarn bowls by Clay By Laura do double duty beautifully. Instead of cutouts on the side of the bowl, Laura creates two heart-shaped handles that act as yarn guides. The uniquely-textured bowls, which Laura finishes with a bright two-color glaze, would also be great for holding fruit, candy or even notions, if you want to keep it all for your knitting.
Barbara Benson’s latest design lets you knit up an elegant shawl super fast in bulky yarn. Knit in simple stockinette, it has a basketweave trim that stands out in the snow white Crater Lake, a bulky Superwash Merino from Stitch Sprouts.
Summer Blues, the latest from Laura of Fiber Dreams, is perfect for throwing over sundresses or a tank and jeans. This raglan cardigan is knit in one piece from the top down with a folded hem that can be knit in a contrasting color if you’d like.
