Our contribution to the crawl

Happy Yarn Crawl! We can't wait for the fun to begin this morning.  Passports are available as shops open at 10am.Each of the shops participating the Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl has contributed a pattern to the collection included in the shop hop bags that are available for just $5 (while supplies last).  The bags also include a handful of other gifts; and we made sure to add some special touches to the bags that are available at My Sister Knits.wf-04-crop-wThis is the Wellfleet Cowl designed by our own Kate Salomon that can be knit up with a single skein of Ella Rae Lace Merino.  At the conclusion of the Yarn Crawl we'll be able to post this pattern to Ravelry.  But until August 16th, you'll only find copies of it in the Hot August Knits Yarn Crawl bags available at participating shops.Kate created this cowl with summer knitting in mind.  Inspired by a trip to Cape Cod she made last summer, she combined popcorn stitch lace with rings of eyelets for a airy accessory perfect to ward off air-conditioning drafts or cool summer evening breezes.We'll be featuring a couple of samples in the shop during the crawl so that you can try it on and see if it is something you'd like to knit up.We hope to see you soon!
