We were so excited to see local designer Hilary Smith Callis featured in the Summer 2013 issue of Knit Scene and wanted to share the Eclipse Top.
Worked up in Pashmina, this 3-4 skein top is drapey, soft, silky, and vibrant. Consider the color “Vermillion” to whip up a sweater like the one in the photos, or pick your own warm-weather hue from any of the brilliant Pashmina colorways.
The pattern for the Eclipse Top is available in the Summer 2013 issue of Knit Scene.
We were so happy to see this little miss in her new hat. How could we not share these photos?

Sally’s Babette Blanket is stunning. Using a whomping 23 skeins of Koigu Premium Merino (KPM), Sally’s blanket is a labor of love for her son. And labor she did, Sally modified the blanket to be a little larger. Sally recommends getting 3 skeins of 8 colors to ensure even color variation. Feeling a little spunky? Throw in a color of KPPPM. The Babette Blanket pattern was published in the Spring 2006 issue of Interweave Crochet and is available for purchase online.
We’re so looking forward to seeing what Sally makes next. If you see her around, chat blankets and all things crochet.
