There is almost nothing better than a two color fingering weight shawl. This month’s special is 20% off Malabrigo and Done Roving fingering weight yarns.
A great pattern for fingering weight yarn is the Daybreak shawl by Stephen West. This pattern is really simple, but yields amazing results. The pattern is available here. It calls for 2 skeins of fingering weight yarn and US size 4 needles.
Come into the shop for color ideas and have us print a copy of the pattern!

We are featuring the Aranami Shawl for our November special! This shawl would be the perfect project for someone who is looking to try something new without being too complicated. This shawl involves picking up stitches and short rows to create a beautiful wave-like pattern.
The shawl is knit on a size 2 needle, but don’t let that scare you away! All the triangles and changing colors make this shawl fly right off the needles.
Any fingering weight yarn would work for this project. You could choose a variegated yarn, or a different color for each level of the shawl for a gradient look. To see the gradient style shawl, click here.
We have several yarns that would work perfectly for the Aranami Shawl, but pictured above are some of our favorite choices. The yarn pictured above, Lang Jawoll Degrade and Louisa Harding variegated fingering weight yarn, will be 20% off for the month of November so you can get started on your very own Aranami Shawl. The pattern is available on Revelry and we would be happy to help you purchase the pattern in the shop as well! Be sure to stop by the shop this month for help picking out your yarn and getting started on the shawl. Happy knitting!
While fall is settling in faster than we may think, there’s still time to get in one quick cool weather knit! Fractal Danger is a perfect last minute project to make sure you have a cute little scarf for fall. This design is by a shop favorite, Martina Behm, uses one skein of fingering weight yarn, and is knit on size 4 needles. All of these things, we think, makes it the perfect project for a quick fall knit.
We have several different yarns in the shop that would look beautiful knit up in this project, but our personal pick for this yarn is Ella Rae Lace Merino. This luscious yarn is 100% Merino wool and each skein has 460 yards. While the project only calls for 400-430 yards of a fingering weight yarn, the shop staff would be happy to help you figure out how to add repeats to this pattern in order to make it slightly bigger and utilize your whole skein of yarn.
For the month of September, our stock of Ella Rae Lace Merino will be 20% off!
Be sure to stop by the shop and talk to us about picking your yarn for this project and getting started today. As always, we are here to help!
