Multi-tasking

Leave a comment

Next weekend, we will be tuned in to the LDS General Conference Broadcast, and so will many of our friends. It’s a perfect opportunity for a bit of multi-tasking, and we at Harmony are wondering what our friends and readers will be working on over the weekend? Please let us know by posting a comment below or post a picture of your project on our Facebook page.

If you haven’t already picked something out, here are a few projects ideas we have found inspiring:

Fall Pumpkins

The one we have in the store was knitted by Sarah from a pattern she acquired at a local Utah shop-hop, but have you seen the beautiful patterns available on Ravelry?  A pumpkin would be a perfect quick little project to knit on the weekend.

We love the Fairytale Pumpkin by Jessica P

This pattern uses a super bulky yarn, such as Cascade Lana Grande $8.00 per 100g skein or Rowan Big Wool $15.95 per 100g skein. 

The Jack Be Little Pumpkin by Elizabeth Murphy or Linda Dawkins Knitted Pumpkin are super cute too, and by the end of the weekend, you could have finished dozens. Suitable yarns we have in stock would be Cascade 220 worsted weight, $9/110g skein or Universal’s Deluxe Worsted $6.60/100g skein.

Slippers

The French Press Felted Slippers pattern by Melynda Bernadi caught our eye while we were browsing Ravelry. This pattern will definately be on our “to knit” list. We’ll let you know how they turn out. The worsted weight cascade 220 would felt well or we like the idea of using Cascade’s Alpaca Lana D’oro.

Hats

A hat would be a perfect weekend project too, and there are so many to choose from. Amy  Swenson’s Cabled Button Toque is a great little pattern. This one is knitted in the Cascade Lana Grande. We love this color.

We are very much looking forward to hearing about your plans for next weekend, and seeing pictures of what you have created.

We want our customers to know how much we have enjoyed getting to know you, and how much we value your feedback. We have been listening, and we are working on expanding the range of yarns we carry. We are on a waiting list for madelinetosh, and have lots of other new yarns on their way. We’ll let you know when they arrive!
