Emily recently released a new shawl pattern under The Tempestry Project that features two of our yarns. The Last Leaf is a relatively simple lace pattern with both written and charted instructions, and is a lovely introduction to lace triangle-shawl knitting. The pattern calls for one skein of either our Marine Silk Fingering (pictured, L-R: Wedgewood Mint, Lime, and Forest Walk) for a summery warm-weather version or our Halofor a cozier cool-weather version.

And our Cowl of the Month Class Series continues...
From June through November, we are offering a class on a particular cowl featuring one of our exclusive hand-dyed yarns. Classes will generally be held on the 3rd Saturday of each month, 10:30am-12:30pm. Pre-register for as many as you’d like, or check for availability closer to each date.
Coming up next:
Cowl of the Month #4: Hint of Autumn with Fran Jepperson.
This is quite possibly the most luxurious cowl in this series, made with our Cashmere Cloud yarn. This cowl, with its kerchief styling that drapes perfectly around the neck without the bulk or fiddly ends of a full-on shawl, is sure to be a favorite go-to for warding off the chill of early fall mornings. Hint of Autumn begins with just 3 stitches, is worked flat for the first few inches, and then joined in the round and progresses into a beautiful but simple lace edge.
Materials include 2 skeins Cashmere Cloud and 24″ US5 needles. This is a 1-session class and will meet Saturday, 9/21, 10:30am-12:30pm. Class fee is $25.
The Writer's Shawl with Carol Harrington
When one sits at a computer wearing a shawl to keep warm, what's the most annoying interruption to your train of thought? The shawl slips off, twists around, goes cattywampus. The brilliant design of this shawl makes it a well-behaved, obedient companion. It lies flat, doesn't move when you do, and snuggles in for the long run. In addition, it can be made in any yarn, is easy to do, and yet is pretty enough to wear to the ball. This class will teach the "anatomy" of the shawl, discuss design options, and get you started on your adventure.
Yes, beads are possible. Yes, it can even work for men. Yes, it's great for grandma, too. Materials are 3 skeins Copper Twist (88% Superwash Merino, 12% Nylon embedded with Copper, 50g = 218 yards) US 4 (3.5 mm) 24” circular needle, US 5 (3.75 mm) 32” circular needle, and 4 stitch markers.
This is a 1-session class and will meet Thursday, 9/19th, 5:30-7:30pm.
