Shawl and Tell

Hi Friends!  I hope you are all doing well.  I’ve finished my first Test Knit ever!  This is the Dovah Shawl by Kelly McClure of Boho Knits. Isn’t it beautiful?!  I am in love!  Thank you Kelly for such a lovely pattern!

I’ve used my color-way “Bark” and “PrimRose” on Singles Fingering Yarn.

Imagine the color combinations!  I’m going to be putting some kits together for various options for this shawl.

Wouldn’t this be gorgeous !  Kelly has published the pattern with a 3 color option.  This would be stunning.  This is the “Nightingale Kit” listed in the shop.

My friend Catalina made this cute shawl.

It’s the perfect size for a Spring or Fall scarf.  I live in jeans.  I see all of my fashion through that lens.  I like to wear sundresses too.  I like to wear a little light weight cardigan with sun dresses more so than shawls.  I like to wear my shawls with jeans.

Lake of Shining Waters Shawl

Catalina made this out of our “Nebula” color-way.  I see this with a white t-shirt/blouse and jeans.  Pretty.

We are having a trunk show at David’s Yarn this Saturday, August 31, 2019 from 11:00 to until 7:00.  Come out and say “Hi”.  We’ve got some new Fall colors to debut.  New colors and the softest bulky yarns ever!

I’ve got skeins to label.  I wish you all the best and hope to see some of you on Saturday.

Happy Knitting.

Here is a link to our YouTube channel.  Watch to see Lauren’s Swoncho!  It’s divine!

Test Knit/Sale

I feel like such a braggadocious yarn person!  I will admit it! Yes.  I am.  I love yarn!  Join me all yarn lovers!  Love all the yarn with me!  I’m working on a test knit for Kelly McClure of Boho Knits.  It’s called the Dovah Shawl.  I need to get it done by August 22.  It’s so pretty, I just had to share it.     Get ready, she will release it by the end of August.  I have all kinds of kits and color-ways to make it with.   I’m working with “Bark” and “Primrose”.

I also love a good sale.  I’m the type of person that will wait to purchase something until a sale is on.  So, of course, I’m going to apply that to all my beautiful co-yarn lovers.  I’ve got a 20% off sale going on in the Etsy Store.   Check out some of our new color-ways.

This is “Midnight Canyon” on worsted!  Grant is a Jazz musician and teaches at UCO here in Edmond, OK.  He plays Jazz at various locations around town.  He is cool!  He has that soft cool jazz voice.  I like to listen to him talk.  He came over and made “Midnight Canyon”.  I took it to a local yarn store trunk show and it sold out as quick as I got it out of the box.   Grant is off playing Jazz, so I had to make it myself.  This is my version of Grant’s original color-way.  I love the manly energy of this yarn.

This is Lauren’s yarn baby.  She made a teal version called “Starling” that is one of our best sellers.  It’s gorgeous!  We had a request to make it a little more blue than teal.  This is it!  Introducing “Robin’s Egg”.  It is sooooo pretty!  We have it available in sparkle and it’s breathtakingly beautiful!  Seriously!     20% off this week!

Lavender Fields.  Do I need to say more?  This is a top seller too.  Here it is in all her glory on Fingering Singles.  Readily available to ship to you immediately.  It’s gorgeous and on sale!

Get out of the heat and let’s shop for some pretty art yarn!  Back to school sale!

A Chick That Knitz

Also friends, the little chick you see in the pictures represents me, A Chick That Knitz.  I had another one that represented Lauren and it fell and broke into pieces.  If anyone finds a cute chick, let me know, and I will buy it!  I am on the hunt.

Stay cool friends.  Enjoy indoors and air conditioning and YARN!

Tammy.

Hello Friends!  How are you guys today?   I’ve started a test knit for this lovely shawl from Kelly McClure of Boho Knits.   Look at the color-way I created for this stunning shawl.

Isn’t it gorgeous!  This is “Bark” “Primrose” and “Love’s Yellow Rose”.  I splurged and bought myself a set of Signature circular knitting needles.  They are the best of the best.

I also created some mini’s on sparkle and sock…

Here it is with “Marvelous Mauve” instead of “Love’s Yellow Rose”.

I have 2 1/2 weeks to finish the test shawl and I’m casting on today.  I am eager to see it done!   I will be back with show and tell!

Happy Saturday!

Yarn makes me happy!  I hope it lights your fire too!
