When Seed Stitch customer, Maxine Hartley called from her home in Avila Beach, California she said she just had to pick up Debbie Bliss’ Spring/Summer magazine and make this adorable sweater and hat set for her co-worker’s new daughter, Parker. Happy to oblige, we sent this Debbie Bliss Prima in pink right to her vacation spot in Florida over the winter so she could work on it there.
Waa Laa…Here is the finished project from the West Coast. Maxine thanks for sharing this with us and with Parker, too!!
We just recieved some more copies of Debbie’s summer magazine in the store if you didn’t get a chance to pick one up yet. The next issue is due on the shelves in September.
Of course we love all things Rowan and we stock tons of different Rowan yarns and patterns, but this one certainly has caught our eye. Several customers have fallen in love with this pattern and colorway and knit it up. The latest being Sabrina Harmon.
This is the Martha pattern from Rowan Studio, Issue #2 knit up in the Rowan Felted Tweed colorway 141, Melody. It’s just lovely.
One of the things I love about this project example is the fact that it shows off each knitter. Three different customers have knit this sweater in the same colorway within the last couple of months. Each of the projects came out beautifully, but each are different, showing a bit of the hand and personality in each knitter.
Sabrina picked out these lovely simple buttons that are not done justice in this picture. But from up close they look like etched glass and have a purplish tint to them that really picks up the color way. We wanted her to try it on so badly and show it to us that we undress the manican in the store so she could try on her finished garmet with our manican’s shirt on undeneath!
On Saturday (last week) a customer came into the store carrying a lovely little creation of her own and I couldn’t resist showing it off.
Julie Kahn made this bag with Blue Sky Alpaca’s Bulky weight yarn (colorway 1211). It’s a lovely, simple design of her own — basically a seed stitch square turned into a bag with cute handles.
We always want to see customer projects so please feel free to email us pics of your FOs (Finished Objects) or drop into the store and share them with us. You can also share them with our new Seed Stitch Fine Yarn Flickr group.
