Knitting for family

Whitney won a blue ribbon at the fair for her Entrelac Hat and Scarf set. (Whitney took our Entrelac Hat class. If you want to learn this blue ribbon winning technique, our next class starts Sunday, September 30. Check out the details here.) So, while Whitney embarks on another project, the Stag Bag by Norah Gaughan from Knitscene, guess what her younger sister Hillary is knitting?

Yep, that's right: another Entrelac hat and scarf set. (If I'm not mistaken, Whitney made the hat and scarf originally as a gift for Hillary, but projects are contagious and you can never be too careful gifting knitting to a knitter.)

As I mentioned in a previous post, Vi made her granddaughter (deserving or not is questionable, but adorable is undeniable) this Penny Straker sweater. Here is Vi's granddaughter and her sweater in person.

And here is a close up of the owls. See the beads for the eyes?

Vi has been ill recently and was hospitalized over the weekend. She's fine, but misses the Knit Nook. We're keeping your chair open for you Vi! Feel better soon!

The owls look awesome on that little sweater! So cool with beaded eyes!!
I am a fan of entrelac myself! I'm working on a Lady Eleanor Stole from Scarf Style. Next time I visit Louisville, I'll try to remember to wear it in the shop. BTW Check my blog for my Bar Harbor Shell Bag. I bought the yarn at your store when I was home this summer visiting my family and friends!! :) Lambs Pride.
