We have two additional new patterns to share with you!  Both are designed with our lofty and elastic Lana  yarn, a fingering weight 2-ply made with 100% fine Targhee wool.  Because of it’s wool spun construction, this yarn is a very versatile option for lightweight garments, looking terrific at a surprisingly wide range of gauges.  We’ve been equally pleased with the fabric created on a US 2 needle as we are knitting it up with a US 8!

Last week we debuted Cap Sease’s Grace cardigan at the MD Sheep and Wool Festival in West Friendship and it was met with ooohs and ahhhs.   It also made an appearance on our Instagram feed as last week’s Free Pattern Friday selection and generated more than a couple hundred likes.












This boxy cropped cardigan is made more feminine with delicate lace panels that edge the front, run along the sleeves and feature prominently on the back of the sweater.  This is a perfect layering piece for warmer weather when you find yourself reaching for a little something to ward off the chill of over zealous air conditioned spaces.

And for something even breezier, you might want to take a closer look at Maureen’s Havana pullover.  This delightful top features an all over lace pattern and a wide open neckline. The drop sleeve construction creates little cap sleeve styling with the simple addition of a ribbed cuff that will finish the piece to match the neckline.  The friends who visited our tent in Maryland loved the delicacy of this summer must knit!

We’ll have samples of both of these beauties at our booth at the NH Sheep & Wool Festival this weekend.  You can come visit us there at the Deerfield Fair Grounds, 34 Stage Rd, Deerfield, NH.   Festival hours are Saturday May 12th 9am – 5pm & Sunday May 13th 9am – 4pm.  General admission is $7, Seniors 65 and older are $5, and Youth 12 and under are free.  Festival organizers have asked that you leave your pets at home.

We hope that you’ll come celebrate Mother’s Day with us.  What better way to enjoy your day than to surround yourself with fiber fun?
