Designer Lorilee Beltman came up with this awesome little Chameleon scarf pattern in Interweave Knits! I love how she knit leaving the open holes in the middle of each square...so cute. It's my new favorite project. Best of all, we have all materials to whip up this spring scarf (it's all cotton).
Here's the details and links to knit your own:

Here's what is waiting for our Valentine when she wakes up! A box of chocolates (heart shaped, of course), Valentines, a dog that tells her she's cute and wags his tail, and one HUGE Valentine card.
Have a great day! Hugs & Kisses!

The project du jour is a wonderful lace scarf. This project is named the Clouds of Lace Scarf but I think they should have named it "All things Wonderful." Get this...the yarn included is Cashmere, Silk, Baby Alpaca, and Kid Mohair. Oooooo, so decadent!
Here are the skills you need to know:
- knit 2 stitches together
- yarn over
That's it! If you aren't so sure about doing a knit2tog or a yarn over I've added some photos and explanations below.
Did you know? A k2tog is the easiest way to decrease.
Insert right needle into next TWO stitches, and complete as if you were making a knit stitch.
Now, give lace a chance.

For the somewhat lazy knitter...Isn't it enough to just knit a sock? Sometimes I just want to have a little project I can stow in my purse, whip it out anywhere I'm kept waiting more than 10 seconds. I can't be bothered with changing colors on a sock project. We just received an awesome new sock yarn from Berroco that fits the bill. It's appropiately named, SOX (and we stock every color!). This fabulous new yarn is a self-striping fair isle and it makes some of the best socks you can imagine.
Question of the day (we are often asked this question):
If I make something bigger than a sock, will it still stripe in Fair Isle???
The answer is....YES. Here's proof:
