How can it be July already?? Half of the year is gone. Are you feeling good about how many projects you’ve knit and/or sewn this year so far? Today’s Mixer Challenge may add one more to your finished list! Here is what we’re doing in July:
Yarn Monthly Mixer: Knit something out of cotton yarn (or a cotton mix). Last night, our Knit Night friend Ann brought a beautiful cowl that she had knit out of Cascade Ultra Pima. I decided to put my project away and cast on the same pattern she had used (but am doing mine out of a wool that I am testing for the shop.) The pattern is cute! Called A Noble Cowl. And it does call for a cotton yarn. Here are some pattern and yarn ideas for you:
Yarn: Universal Yarn Cotton Supreme, Supreme Batik, Universal Bamboo Pop, Cascade Fixation, Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Cotton, and Worsted Cotton, Spud and Chloe Sweater, and Outer, Cascade Ultra Pima, and Ultra Pima Paints, and Manos del Uruguay Serena.
Fabric Monthly Mixer: We’re going to the opposite extreme with the Fabric challenge and having you make something out of flannel or wool this month! PJ Pants, comfy throw quilt, pincushion – anything you’d like!
We are closed on Monday for the July Fourth holiday, but we will have a great Monday Update for you on Monday afternoon, so watch for that!
