The Kaleidoscope Poncho was an early KAL that Julia addressed. What a wonderful design to knit in any long striping yarn and a coordinating solid. Julia made ours in Silk Garden and DK Merino Superwash.
Come see it in person.
This beauty was knit in NORO Silk Garden and DK Merino Superwash for the coordinating solid. We have so many colors to choose from.
Here are many other poncho designs we have to share at the shop. Here are a couple of the most popular ones.

Love Note Started Last Week

But Its Not Too Late to Join

Last Friday, Julia started our latest KAL with the delicate sweater called
Love Note.
To join our KAL- join our Facebook Group page.
This top down oversized pullover can be knit with short or long sleeves and either cropped or hip length. The loose gauge of 4 sts =1″ over stockinette stitch allows for the use of anything from the recommended fingering wt +
Lace wt mohair to a worsted weight yarn. A well written pattern.
Here is a photo of a Love Note Pillover Julia knit already. She used a Fingering wt yarn + a lace wt Mohair Silk Blend. It is a super light weight garment.
Julia is knitting up two sweaters for this new KAL: one knit with the recommended fingering wt yarn + a mohair /silk blend. She is using Malabrigo Sock + Rowan Kid Silk Haze. For her other version she is working with a DK weight yarn: Joe Cole’s WTF Flockin’ DK worked alone.
I am knitting a toddler sized Love Note knit in a much heavier yarn: Cumulus.
My Love Note, using Cumulus.
Well I haven’t gotten any further- had to stop to make a pumpkin.
Now I’ll get right back to it!!
I am making size 1-2 for my granddaughter. I am at the point where I am starting the short row shaping to make the back longer than the front.
Then the bottom ribbing finishes it off.
