Its Poncho Time

Fall is coming, which means its poncho time!
Ponchos are the go-to garments for when that first chill in the air hits.
This month, Pat’s classes will be taking on the poncho called Marlow.
An easy knit in Sesame, it takes just 5-6 balls of yarn.
Please sign up for one of Pat’s classes if you are interested.
The pattern is FREE with your yarn purchase.
Wool, acrylic, cotton, and nylon come together for a colorful yarn flecked with color and texture. Pop your finished knit or crochet creations in the washing machine for easy care!
230 yds/100g ball The Knitter‘s Edge carries 12 colorways.
Marlow is a “throw- on- whenever” kind of poncho.
Knit in garter stitch on the bias with fully fashioned neck shaping,
you’ll want to wear this both out and about town,
as well as at home to keep you cuddly warm.
Pattern is FREE with your yarn purchase of Sesame.
Here are many other poncho designs we have to share

Love Note Started on Friday

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.

Katrinkles to The Rescue

Katrinkles has the solution for those times when you need a stitch marker to tell you what to do. Using a sharpie you can write special notes to yourself on these white plastic markers like “increase here”, or “20 rows”, or “armhole edge” etc. Once done, you can erase the markings with alcohol. Then use them for your next project.
These little markers are great to have in your arsenal.
