We can't keep our hands of Shibui Pebble

I'm not the only one in the shop under the Shibui Pebble spell.  Julie has been working on some great projects with this yarn as well.   Here is her lovely daughter Mary modeling a new cowl.  We all love the pop of shibui colors. image_medium2She put a fun spin on the Quince and Co.'s Rayures pattern designed by Amy Miller.  The pattern calls for 7 skeins of fingering weight yarn.  Julie opted to hold Shibui Cima together with Shibui Pebble.  This yarn combination adds a bit of alpaca to the already delicious blend of cashmere, recycled silk, and soft merino.  This cowl is one to snuggle into.The pattern has you knit in the round and then graft your provisional cast on edge with your last row of stitches. This means that the fabric of the cowl is doubled, ensuring that there is no wrong side.  And even better...all of your stripe ends are tucked inside -- no need to weave them in! sugar cane 01Julie also recently finished a beautiful tweedy version of the Sugar Cane Hat designed by CityPurl.  This stylishly simple slouch was created with two strands of two different colors of Pebble held together throughout.We are brimming with project ideas for this lovely yarn, and would love to find the perfect color for you to create just what your heart desires.  Stop on by when you can, and we can do some brain-storming.  We can't wait to get you started.
