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.

Got pumpkins?

These crocheted pumpkins were created by our talented friend, Melissa. Thank you so much for sharing these festive little cuties!

There are tons of patterns out there and there is still plenty of time to whip up one of these "gourd-geous" pumpkins for your home.

P.S. Pattern info: Melissa Franken-patterned these guys, so no pattern this time!
