Friend-of-the-shop Sarah stopped by to show us her recent knitting. The gray scarf is from the Jade Sapphire "Her Scarf" kit. This kit is stuffed with skeins of decadent cashmere, and your choice of 7 different scarf patterns. This finished scarf goes twice around the neck with the ends spiraling naturally to the waist. Sarah is letting us show it in the window for a while.

The half-moon-shaped shawl is called Citron from the Winter 2009 issue of Knitty. The multi-colored bands were knit with Noro Silk Garden, while the intervening lavender stripes, which form ruches naturally thanks to the clever pattern, is by Sereknity Yarns (a New Hampshire based dyer whose stuff we absolutely adore).

What have you been working on? Tell us in the comments.


  1. This was my quick weekend project:

    Thanks to Becky for showing Chris the pattern and the yarn when we were in on Friday! It hasn't left his head since it left my needles ;)

  2. Ah I saw Sarah's Citron while she was working on it. It looks so good finished!

  3. Christine - Glad he likes the hat! Isn't it a quick, fun knit? Can't wait to see the Henry scarf when you finish that too... ~Becky
