Public Displays of Yarn Affection in Argentina

122

Allison spotted this lovely piece of yarn art while traveling through Argentina.  We’re loving the striking colors and how the crocheted piece follows the shape of the tree.

From inspiration to creation, the ImagiKnit staff was captivated by Lisa’s Queen of the Seven Kingdoms crocheted shawl. Pairing one skein each of Tosh Lace in Celadon with Orion in 12 (Iridescent Silver), Lisa made eye-catching lace with subtle, sparking edging.

Customer Creations: Sally’s Babette Blanket

babette

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.

 

Sally

We’re so looking forward to seeing what Sally makes next.  If you see her around, chat blankets and all things crochet.
