September 2009 Newsletter: The Season's Best

Knitters love Accessories! And what's not to love, especially this time of year, stash dive and quickly knit up one of this Season's Best designs that will update your wardrobe in a heartbeat and make a much appreciated gift. With new projects from Ilga Leja, Through The Loops, Melissa Wehrle, Gardiner Yarn Works, Exclusive & Lisa Ellis Designs, you'll find one you covet and another that's gift worthy!

In This Issue: / Bliss / Warm Heart, Warm Hands / Ilga Leja's Kauni Messenger Bag / High Line by Through The Loops / New Sock Designs from the Gardiner Yarn Company / Tangled Vine Socks /

A delicately stitched shawlette is perfect for all seasons and Bliss by Melissa Wehrle of Neoknits is just the one you've been looking for. Worked in a DK weight yarn, it knits up very quickly and without much fuss.

Ilga Leja's Kauni Messenger Bag
About a year ago I carried Kauni Effekt yarn and you may have some left in your stash, now Ilga Leja brings us this fabulous new messenger bag that's knit in this fun striping yarn. Combine the gradual striping sequence of this unique yarn with the geometric construction Ilga's Messenger Bag and you will have a one-of-a-kind carry-all.

High Line by Through The Loops
Wrapping a large scarf around your neck is not only popular, but practical for the upcoming cool weather. Set the urbanite in you apart with Through The Loops'
High Line

New Sock Designs from the Gardiner Yarn Company
And to round out the Season's Best Accessories, Socks!

Adding to her much loved Fall/Winter '09 Collection Chrissy Gardiner of Gardiner Yarn Works introduces four new sock designs! Designed for Sock Summit '09 Chrissy's Sunset Beach are a fun toe-up pair that feature a unique scalloped fold-over cuff and knotted stitch pattern. And the Forest Park Socks are personal with the inspiration found from the strolls Chrissy takes through the huge nature park in her native home of Portland, OR.

Her cabled Butterfly Garden Socks are designed to show off your mad skills, cables, traveling stitches and bobbles keep it interesting both knitting and wearing these intricate toe-up socks. While the Wavering Cable Socks feature cables that wave lazily down the leg, its a fun twist on a simple cable pattern!

Tangled Vine Socks
Chrissy Gardiner also designed my newest Exclusive pattern, the Tangled Vine Socks. These delightfully cabled socks are knit in one skein of Malabrigo's Sock yarn and the beautiful and unique leafy cable design will keep your knitting interesting for a long time!
And three of the most important accessories for winter are a hat, scarf and mittens, this Season's Best is my Isabella pattern designed by Kirsten Kapur of "Through The Loops."
