Lauren made this GORGEOUS shawl by Susanne Sommer of SuSo Knits. It’s called Brioche Tiles. It is so pretty! She did a fabulous job! I’m so proud of her. Brioche is a little challenging. Once you get it down, you’ve got it. This project is not mindless knitting. You do need to pay attention to it, but, it is well worth the time!
We have the Nightingale Kit on sale. It has the 3 skeins of yarn to make this beauty! I am so proud of her! She did a fantastic job! It’s stunning.
David’s Yarn in Edmond, OK had a little Halloween party. This is Pixie (the blonde) and her best friend, Lydia (the red head). They are the characters, angel and demon, from “Good Omens”. I thought they looked great.
This is a beautiful shawl in our color-way “Fern”. I don’t know the name of this pattern. If you are interested in it, let me know , and I will find out for you.
I’m off to list some new shawl cuffs in the shop. They are so popular, they sell fast.
It’s cold and wet here in Oklahoma. My husband is lighting the fireplace now. Maybe some hot chocolate later… We put Kahlua in our hot chocolate. Try it. It’s delicious!
Can you believe this gorgeous shawl! Sharon from KansasKlicker knit this stunning shawl. It is the Malibu Shawl by Jodie Brown. Check out her Etsy Shop for a selection of hand knit shawls and accessories. She has some beautiful pieces!
To celebrate this beauty, we are doing a Give-A-Way of the three skeins of Dk weight yarn needed to make this gorgeous piece. You enter on Instagram. Find me “A Chick That Knitz” and Follow me and tag a few of your fiber friends. That’s it. That enters you into the drawing. The drawing ends on Sunday at noon on 9/29/19. The winner will be announced on Instagram.
We’re also having a sale this week. 20% off Check it out. A Chick That Knitz
Here’s the newest YouTube video. I’m chit chatting and showing off some new yarn colors. Luke has a surprise visit at the end.
Happy Knitting Friends,
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.
Here is a link to our YouTube channel. Watch to see Lauren’s Swoncho! It’s divine!
(and these were the good expressions YouTube picked for us – lol )
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!
I wanted to show off some new shawls that my sister-in-law, Christine, made out of my yarn. This shawl is called “Debut” and you can find it here – “Debut”
The colors are Pink, Circus, and a blue I made special for her.
Isn’t it pretty.
This is another “Debut” shawl in different colors. She is an amazing crocheter and has just recently learned to knit. She is a beginner knitter. Look what you can do as a beginner. She did amazing!
Well done Christine! Well done.
