Frank Shawl - KAL - March 31, April 14, 28, May 12

by: Joji Locatelli
A very easy and stunning shawl, inspired by the work of artist Frank Stella, this design is a study in geometry.
Triangular pieces are assembled together to create a spectacular wrap with a unique shape that is both beautiful and stunning to wear, with many tips, all in different shades.
I played with a gradient of grays, and my favorite color, gold, to give this shawl a vintage vibe.
The Frank Shawl is constructed as 3 triangular sections, joined together when working the last one of them.
Skill level: Beginner

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
97” (244 cm) from side to side and 39” (98 cm) from top to bottom at deepest point.
See Schematic at the end of the pattern.

Yarn:
Takes (4) skeins of fingering weight yarn
There are currently several colour combinations available as kits on our online site. We are always happy to help you combine colours, in-store as well.

NOTE: a large order of Mid-Knit Cravings Light Sock has just come into the shop. Lots of colour choices to be had.

Project Idea #10 (it's in the works!) La Dame de Fer(the Iron Lady - Eiffel tower)

By:Marie Amelie Designs
(A purchase pattern on Ravelry)

Yarn: Lang Alpaca Soxx 4-ply

Okay. Okay. I couldn’t help myself!! Started this beautiful lightweight cardigan a few days ago. The textured design is super easy but so effective. I can’t even tell you how much I love this yarn. Sock yarn you say? Yup. And it is so very very soft. A joy to work with on the needles. I think I am in Love. Think Spring in Paris. SHOP ALPACA SOXX here


Masking On Monday March 21st the Province of Ontario is lifting the mask restrictions. There has been much discussion about this. While some are totally ready to embrace this freedom, others are not. People that are immuno-compromised, have elderly relatives/friends or just don’t feel that they are ready will likely continue to mask. The number of cases in Dufferin County, and particularly Shelburne are low. In the store we usually have single shoppers or groups of 1-2 (not crowded). All that said, we (our staff) have decided to remain masked for the next 9 days (post March break). During this time customers may enter the shop masked/unmasked. Beginning March 29th we will most likely go to an unmasked status for staff. Please do what is comfortable for you.

If there are any changes in the Provincial regulations we will be following those accordingly.
