Meet Kakigori

In Japan, Kakigori is a shaved ice desert flavored with syrups, often served in vibrant colors. This delightfully soft, single ply DK weight yarn from Noro is spun from cotton blended with silk, viscose and polyamide for a matt finish with lightly textured, tweedy pops of color.
It sure does look delicious! And so soft too!
50% Cotton, 30% Silk, 10% Rayon, 10% Nylon
200 gram cake with 660 yards
Works up to a DK weight gauge
We carry all 7 colorways in NORO Kakigori.

Pacifica Poncho (crochet)

Huge Sesame Restock

We just received a HUGE restock of Berroco Sesame
Now for our ideas of what to do with it . . .
3 lovely ladies in their seasonal ponchos. Yes the center poncho on Celeste is the Easy Folded Poncho by Churchmouse. She knit it in Silky wool. The 2 other ponchos, shown on Loretta and Mary are the Marlow Poncho- a great pattern from Berroco.
13 colors now in stock
43% Wool, 39% Acrylic, 9% Cotton, 9% Nylon
230 yds/100g ball
Worsted weight
A bandanna shaped shaped cowl, worked from the top down.
A snuggly pullover for Sesame.
So what else do we have in mind for Sesame?
How about Andrea Mowry’s Latest Shawl Design:
A New Design from Andrea Mowry
Pat is knitting up this shawl for us in Sesame.
The Inclination Shawl is designed for 6 colors of Spincycle Dream State. We have chosen to use Sesame as the color changes are similar. Due to the higher yardage of Sesame we could knit it with just 4– 230 yd balls. But we have decided to start with 5 colorways in Sesame for more color changes,
yet that might change as Pat works on it.
These are the Sesame colorways we have chosen for our
The Inclinations Shawl.
But as I said- that may change. Several knitters are joining Pat in her classes to make this shawl and the Marlow Poncho (Pat has already knit up 4 of those), They will all help keep an eye of how our Inclinations Shawl is coming along. Why don’t you join in too! Pat teaches on Tuesdays. Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. If those days are not good for you- we have many additional classes- Monday through Saturday, including late afternoons and evenings on Wednesdays.
