What We're Knitting


Here at My Sister Knits, we try to keep new and fun samples of knitted projects in the shop for our customers. We think that it is the best way to experience a new yarn or the latest patterns, besides, we are all active knitters too! We are constantly inspired by each other and our customers, so I wanted to share what we are making, what we love right now, and hopefully inspire all of you as well.

Dawn has made MadelineTosh’s Honey Cowl. This is a very popular pattern on Ravelry, and I understand why. The pattern is simple, beautiful, and free! It calls for DK weight yarn and, while we do have Tosh DK in the shop, Dawn opted for Alchemy’s Temple. It is 100% superfine Merino wool, has 128 yards per skein, and comes in neutral as well as beautiful bright colors.

Check out http://madelinetosh.com/store/index.php/patterns/honey-cowl.html or Ravelry for the pattern, www.alchemyyarns.com for the yarn, and the shop for this beautiful sample.

Julie made a simple scarf to show off Rowan’s Kidsilk Haze Stripe yarn. A self-striping version of the traditional Kidsilk Haze (70% Super kid mohair/ 30% silk), one skein is enough to make this scarf. The pattern is even on the underside of the label! We have a few different color ways, all in lively colors- perfect for brightening up your winter and getting ready for spring.

Lastly, I made the Ships and Seaside Cowl by Tiny Owl Knits. This cowl is knit in the round with a provisional cast on and then, instead of binding off, the two ends are grafted together to make a super warm tube with no wrong side. I love it! I used Rowan Kid Classic for this project; it’s a blend of wool with a little bit of mohair and we have lots of colors in the shop.

Tiny Owl Knits has lots of great patterns, so be sure to stop by their website: www.tinyowlknits.com
