Sample time!

This Butterfly / Papillon shawl is just stunning! Pairing Urth Yarn`s Uneek Fingering from with a solid, the yarn does of a lot of the colorwork so you can focus on this fun but challenging pattern. Lots of garter stitch makes for a squishy wrap, but the fingering weight yarn makes it light enough to wear out on a summer evening.

Wouldn`t the the newest baby in town look precious in this sweater?

Michelle knit this Dodging Raindrops cowl on @wonderlandyarns Mary Ann base in the Toadstool colorway. This cowl is excellent car or travel knitting, with just enough interest to keep it from getting boring. The result is a soft and squishy cowl that is reminiscent of spring rain!

Sample time! Michelle wrote this Colorburst Celebration Cowl pattern to say thank you after her first year of Tink & The Frog!

The pattern uses just one skein of Wonderland Yarns & Frabjous Fibers March Hare in their Colorburst collection. This project knits up quick using simple ribbing, stockinette and linen stitch. Michelle used the Blue Skies & Rainbows colorway.

Sample time!

Melissa crocheted this beautiful Duinen shawlette using a Mary Ann mini-skein pack from the Down the Rabbit Hole collection by Wonderland Yarns . This great pattern has multiple sizes and simple crochet stitches to create a stunning spring accessory. We have lots of mini-skein options to choose from, or try a Blossom to skip weaving in all those ends!
