A wrap is a simple & timeless classic, loosely worn over your shoulders or around your neck its also a season-less transitional garment that ushers Fall into Winter and Sivia Harding and Ilga Leja know this best. Begin knitting one of their new designs today for a special loved one or even for yourself, and you'll have it done for winter's festivities.

Beaded Aphrodite is a mythical lace pattern by Sivia that's written in two sizes. This top-down shawl is knit in three equal panels of beaded floral lace separated by “seams” in a cabled arrow lace pattern. A third pattern creates the all-around wavy edge. The resulting shape is a graceful three sides of a square.

The Small is knit with one skein of Malabrigo Lace Baby Merino and the Large is knit with two and a half skeins.

lga's new Fall & Winter 2010 Collection: Far North explores this haunting and mysterious landscape. The birch is one of the deciduous trees that can survive in harsh northern climates. After birches have shed their leaves in the fall, they can look like ghosts, ethereal and other-worldly. Ilga's over-sized wrap, Among the Birches, is shaped like a ruana, but can also be worn as a vest. The changing colors of the piece combine the colors of birch trees in fall with a background of earth and stone.

Among the Birches would look stunning knit in two contrasting colors of Malabrigo's Merino Worsted.

On a special note Schaefer is discontinuing the yarns Sandra and Kathleen, they're both 30% Off and one skein of either knits up fast into a colorful and warm oversized scarf. Plus only 4 skeins of Sandra is needed to knit the Sandra Kimono Jacket and 2 skeins of Kathleen for the Felted Circular Tote and only 1 for the Felted Edge Scalloped Purse.
