I am happy to be finishing up a couple of projects today. I am at the crown of my second Wildflowers Cap by Mary Jane Mucklestone. This hat is a gift and I can't wait to finish it and pass it on. She is going to love it!
There are still Wildflowers Cap Kits available in the kit section of the shop. I highly recommend this pattern with this yarn. The yarn makes the hat super squishy even before blocking. And with the Wisconsin Woolen Spun Worsted, the wool really relaxes and blooms with a good soak.
The Wildflowers Cap pattern originally appeared in the first issue of Making Magazine. And we happen to have all three issues of Making Magazine currently in the shop! This magazine is a beautiful collector's item and I hold my copies very dear.
In other exciting news, I have finished knitting the Sonora Shawl! I absolutely love this shawl and I am actually a little sad that it's over. I will be blocking it tomorrow and I'll share some photos and tips along the way. I knit mine in Pepin for the main color and Ellie Gray for the contrasting color.
Click here for the Sonora Shawl pattern on Ravelry! (Remember you can always purchase any of our patterns on Ravelry or right here on BWC!)
Click here for Home Fingering Weight! You need 2 skeins in a main color and 1 skein in a contrast color to make the Sonora Shawl.
Now that I am getting these two projects off the needles I am ready to move on to some new designs that I have bouncing around. I can't wait to get started. We have a couple of new hats coming around the bend here really soon, too. Lots in store!
One more thing, I am teaching at Knit Circus right here in Madison on June 17th! I think there are still a few spots open in my classes. If you are in the area, please pop over and join the fun! I'd love to see you in class. Click here for more information!
Take care, Knitters. I'll be back on Wednesday with more.
