We aren’t sure Ciel loved the paparazzi following her around the shop, but we do know that she looked adorable in her knit sweater!  Her mom designed it and used Sweet Georgia’s Tough Love Sock.

Teresa knit a gorgeous sweater for her son Julian (below) using Tosh Vintage.  Though she hails from Australia, Teresa considers ImagiKnit her local yarn store!  We always look forward to her visits.

With the help from a past issue of Noro Magazine, Sheila whipped up this amazing crocheted shawl!  It uses Kirara – a self-striping wool and cotton blend.  Noro looks amazing crocheted, don’t you think?

Customer Creation: Mark’s Silk Scarves

Mark has been shopping at ImagiKnit for years and years and we have come to learn one steadfast truth about him: he LOVES silk!

It’s hard to say if he’s found a favorite yet, but we know he’s partial to Louisa Harding’s Mulberry Silk because of it’s unique ply.  He has also experimented with Kinu, Luxury Silk and Serishin.  As far as we know, no two scarves come out the same!

Kelsey sure didn’t mind modeling one of his beautiful creations!  In the background, you’ll see one of her gorgeous art pieces.
