Alisa and Betty HAT

Our students (and instructors) at All About Yarn continue to be sources of inspiration and joy here at the shop. They have been knitting up a storm and have completed some fabulous projects we’d like to share with you.

The first comes from a new knitter, Alisa, who decided to create a cozy hat for her very first project. She used Berroco’s “Sundae” for her main color and the lovely “Aquarella,” from Malabrigo, for her fun fuzzy filler. As you can see, both Alisa and her teacher Betty were very pleased with the final outcome.

This verdant vest is the first garment that Roxie, an accomplished knitter, has ever made for herself and we think she did a fabulous job!

She created this lovely pull-over from a pattern she’d wanted to make for years. Before starting her vest however, Roxie tested out the stitch designs by using them to create scarves. If you look closely, the garment features multiple stitch designs that make this vest a real work of art.

Roxie’s stylish vest is a good reminder to all knitters, that we should take time to make personal projects in addition to all the gifts we make for our friends and family members.

Patsy decided to knit a pattern from Jenny Watson’s second “Queensland Collection,” which features designs inspired by the lovely surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales.

Patsy created her stunning waistcoat using Cascade’s “128 Superwash,” a bulky merino wool that is super soft, machine washable and quick to knit!
