But then the front cover of their catalog had this...
Hello...FOUR gorgeous knits in one picture? And this isn't a knitting magazine? I was in love!
With a little research I found FREE patterns for similar items...and have been adding them to my queue on Ravelry.How about this Beret knit by Nonnahs*, designed by Natalie Larson
Or this v-neck cabled sweater by Jordana Paige
Gloves to keep your fingers warm by Julie Mueller
Or this fabulous Scarf by Lion Brand
It's amazing that knitters can always make something for themselves...rather than spend exorbident amounts of money...and feel a sense of accomplishment of "hey, I made this!" at the end. Granted, there is the cost of the yarn, but I'm sure we've got something hidden away in our stashes that would work...or how about having a Yarn Trade party with your friends - something "new" for everyone that way?
Until next time...happy knitting
