Finished Projects

Here at Knitique, we've been seeing lots of finished projects. One of my most favorite finished projects is the luxurious 5-stranded afghan. Linda, who's made probably a 1/2 dozen of these blankets, inspired us to try a couple on our own. Come to the store and check out the two I've made. The first one on accident (really!) doesn't match the shop but goes perfectly with my living room and family room. The second I did is a perfect match for the fun light heartedness of the shop. If you've come in on Monday, you've met Joann who actually knit the 2nd blanket. I picked all the colors, so that must count for something.

Here's a picture of Jennifer with just 1 of her two blankets. The first was for her daughter in rich shades of plum. The second blanket was done is a variety of blues in a basketweave pattern. Both of the girls loved their blankets and were tickled pink that their mom had knit them. If you need help designing your own 5 stranded afghan come on in and we will help work our magic in creating your own personalized 5 stranded blanket kit.

Next up Paula's fabulous Skull Hat

My handsome 2nd son B. He is always up for a camera shoot. Don't you just love his green rubberbands?
Once everyone saw the hat, we had other models anxiously awaiting their photo shoot.

Just a great cross reference of who this hat would look great on. It would match nicely with Yorick. Teresa made Yorick for her daughter who's received lots of compliments.
Paula will be teaching a Fair Isle class in February where you could choose to make the scarey skull cap.
