Don’t tell the boss but I am spilling the beans today. I just happened to be stretching my legs(OK, I was snooping, but let’s keep that between us) and found myself in our design/sample room. This is the place where all the magic happens. After all the trips have been taken and all the trade shows have been attended, this is the spot where the best of the best end up to be test knitted and designed into something beautiful.
I was excited to see a few things but what really caught my eye was the vivid and fun colors in the Grignasco line. NEON! I managed to get a shot of the fluorescent fabulousness in the Kid Seta line and wanted to share. Ask your yarn shop today about these great colors. Yarn shops-call your reps! You have to see these!

On a recent visit, I asked Jenni at Tranqwool Kniting Provisions in Spencer, NC to show me how she created the crocheted Passion Nette Seaweed scarf on display. Now I’ve written up a pattern for it! Hope you like it!
