Kitman Figeruroa Peacock

Lace Kits
You still have time to create a lacy shawl, shawlette or stole for that special person on your gift list. Kitman Figueroa's Peacock Shawlette is worked from the bottom up in two skeins of Claudia Hand Painted Fingering yarn. Its a quick and easy project with beautiful results and the Kit includes 2 skeins of Claudia's Fingering in the exclusive Yarns On Stage colorway Zebra.

Kitman Figueroa Damask

And Kitman's Damask is knit with just one skein of Malabrigo Sock and the pattern is written in two sizes. The lace pattern may look complicated, but its not, and the results are beautiful.

Goddess Knits Frillery

The Desert Rose Shawl's beautiful knit fabric, with exquisite drape, is created from The Alpaca Yarn Company's 100% suri alpaca lace yarn Suri Elegance. Designed by Renee Leverington of Goddess Knits exclusively for my website its knit from the top down and consists of two identical sections worked together with a dividing stitch and garter edge stitches. And Renee did another exclusive shawl for my website, Frillery, knit in one skein of my very own Lace yarn.

HeartStrings FiberArts' Scotch Thistle Lace Stole is a flowing sequence of leaf and flower motifs, symbolic of the regal Scotch thistle, combined into this beautiful lace stole. Its knit with one skein of Schaefer's fingering Anne yarn.

The triangular shawlette Damson Heike was designed by Linda Minnick to be knit in one skein of Shalimar's Zoe Sock yarn. Its shaped to fit over your shoulders and stay in place without any tugging!

Prism Yarn Circle Shawl

And Christine Nissley dreamed up the quick and easy 5804 Circle Shawl to be knit in Prism Yarn's Saki fingering weight yarn. Three easy lace motifs are followed by a simple crochet picot edge and embellished with beads added during the knitting process: no pre-stringing! The pattern includes a short and longer length and the kit includes 1 or 2 skeins of Saki in the exclusive Yarns On Stage colorway Savoy.

Thank you for sharing my December news! I look forward to hearing from you this holiday season and helping you make your gift knitting & giving go as smooth as possible!
