Gladys

It’s always a pleasure to see what gets made out of the yarn we sell. Gladys, at 101 years old, came in to buy yarn to knit beret for her 77 yr old son. Proof that knitting, is good for you!

Barbara

Barbara made this gorgeous hristening gown for friend’s baby made out of Karabella Super Cashmere Fine. Pattern is Avery Christening Gown and is sure to be a treasured heirloom.

Diana and Samantha

Diana and Samantha model seed stitch cowls of their own design. Made with just one skein of Malabrigo Rasta, that’s a fast knit and gorgeous!

Alosha.JPG

It’s time again to share some Customer Creation photos – Alosha’s spectacular cardigan was inspired by the book Viking Knits, by Elsebeth Lavold. Would you just look at those cables! The yarn used is Jo Sharp DK Wool, in the color Pistachio.

Claudia.JPG

Claudia knit herself this beauty – the pattern is the “Benedikta Patchwork Sweater” from the book Noro: Meet the Man Behind the Legendary Yarns. The yarn used is (of course) NoroSilk Garden Sock. Love those stripes!

Bill.JPG

Now, you would be grinning too if you had designed this amazing cabled sweater! Bill used Cascade 220, the perfect yarn to showcase all those wonderfully textured stitches.

Amazing entrelac

Cat looks lovely in her Kid Silk Haze scarf. All those mitered squares make for a perfect mix of pattern and color. The mohair and silk blend is weightless yet warm, what more could you ask for with the weather we’ve been having?

Samuel.JPG

Can I get a HOORAY for finished projects! Samuel is clearly excited with his coin purse, the second project this 12 year old knitter has ever made. It’s knit using Lamb’s Pride Bulky. His enthusiasm is wonderful!

Scavenger Hunt

Finally, Karina, Danielle, Danielle, and Ramey were participating in the “Amazing Bear Hunt” – a UC Berkeley scavenger hunt, where the clue describing ImagiKnit was a knitter’s paradise. Too true, too true!
