Is there anything as cozy as a warm blanket, a good book and a cup of delicious coffee or tea?  Dawn recently finished a project that we will be offering as a limited edition kit until January 31st: Green Mountain Spinnery's Diagonal Blanket.diagonal-01This bias knit blanket is knit up with a personally selected combination of garter stitch and stockinette (you add the texture as the mood strikes you).Dawn made hers will 11 skeins of variegated Green Mountain Green.  This yarn is a delicious blend of wool and soft mohair that has been spun without a trace of petroleum products.  It is as close to the natural fiber as you can get and is a comforting as you can imagine.Dawn loved the hours that she spent working on this blanket. As the project grew, it covered her lap with snuggly warmth.  And now that it is finished, she can wrap up in its folds with a cup of coffee in the morning and enjoy a good book.diagonal-02Her current selection is The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.  You might want to check your local library or Audible for a fun story that Dawn recommends highly.Julie is creating a special kit for this project that will be available on a pre-order basis from now until the end of the month.  The kit includes the pattern, all the yarn needed to complete the project and a special gift that you can enjoy as you knit your blanket this winter.We imagine this project as a gift you can give yourself for an extra bit of warmth and comfort.  Call the shop for details 970-407-1461.
