The Weekender by Andrea Mowry

Lauren and I finished our The Weekender top by Andrea Mowry.  I used our color-way Rocky Mountains and Lauren used Paris.

Lauren may actually kill me for posting these pictures, some are not flattering.  I like them because they show the fun love Lauren and I have for each other.

I needed a haircut.  My bangs were in my face and frustrating. I tend to be that person that cuts my own hair and horribly messes it up.  I was proud of myself for superman like strength in restraining myself from taking the scissors to my bangs the day before a trunk show!  Now that the trunk show is over, I’ve cut my bangs and should have done it then!

I don’t remember what we were talking about here, but the look on our faces is funny.  I want to say Lauren smelled something bad and was asking me if I “did it.”.

Apparently, it was really funny!

Lauren and I have such fun the in dye studio.  I feel so blessed.

The Weekender is a great easy knit.    My size actually fits Lauren better and Lauren’s size fits me better.  We tried to trade sweaters, but we each loved our own version and yarn choices better so we stuck with our own projects.

Lauren recently made “Angel Fire” and I can’t wait to see this knit up!

I’m off to dye up some yarn to fulfill some orders.  Have a great day and Happy Holidays!

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!

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.
