Rowan cocoon shalom cardigan
The Shalom Cardigan is a wonderful project! It is important however, to make sure your twisted knits are all appearing on the same side. As you can see here from my wonderful example.....ooops did I do that?

I am using the wonderful Rowan Coccon...soft and warm. Just for the sake of info....when doing the gauge I did get the right stitch count however my row count is off so I am modifying length as needed.

Noro silk garden scarf

Well this scarf has been all the rage at River Colors this month. It was first published at the Brooklyn Tweed Blog. The yarn harlot then made a couple and blogged about it and now we have one at the store. Everyone is talking about how addictive it is because you are alternating two different colors of Noro Silk Garden.....the colors just keep presenting and hooking you into knitting just a "scooch More". Choose two colors and knit away.
