I only have 7 more days until my sweet, darling, little boy is on summer vacation. I am not looking forward to the extra dishes in the sink or my house looking like a toy store exploded when I get home. He’ll be going to camp 3 days a week. I chose a mainly academic camp, with sporting activities in the afternoons. When doing my research, I found so many cool camps! Sports, acting, farming, and knitting! Unfortunately, I don’t meet the age requirements for any of them. Yes, I know I can take a class but there’s something about these camps that just sounds so fun.
I wanted to share some of the links I found about kids knitting camps all over the country. I’m trying to talk the boss into letting me review each one in person, individually. I don’t think he’s going for it! After the links, check out a free pattern for a one ball purse in Boku. A popular pattern for workshops and classes.

Set the washer to hot wash, cold rinse, and lowest water level. Add a small bit of soap. Place purse flat in mesh lingerie bag. Do not put anything else in the machine. Check on the purse every 5 minutes. Felting could take 20-25 minutes or so. Keep setting back the timer to make the wash cycle longer. When desired felting is achieved, rinse and lightly spin. Excessive spinning can set in creases. Remove purse, lay flat and block out to a nice finished shape. Straighten handle section. Let dry. With scissors or a razor remove any excess fuzz.

I am so excited for our fall line-up of yarns this year. Many of you have seen them already and were kind enough to share some of your pictures and projects with us. When we introduce a new line, I normally pick a favorite and go with it. That is impossible this time around ! There are so many beautiful fibers and colors. It’s going to be a busy knitting season for sure! I figured I would share them all with you, in one shot. I will do my best to give the important information you need, even when I really just want to say “It’s just so pretty, I must have it.”
We have a fantastic crew who gets to pick these fabulous yarns. It takes a village you know. They travel to Italy, Turkey, and Peru, just to name a few, to find the highest quality fibers so Plymouth Yarn can offer these to your favorite yarn shops. We have a team of designers who get to play, I mean work, with all of the contenders. They are always hard at work visiting trade and fashion shows to see the latest styles. I consider myself a pretty good knitter but they never cease to amaze me when they demonstrate to us just what these yarns are capable of.
Without further ado…..fall yarns!

What a wonderful reason to knit! Julie shared some pictures of the hats she creates, check them out below.

“Is knitting easy?”…This is a question I get asked often. My son plays at least one sport every season so this means mommy gets lots of time to sit and knit. On the rare occasion a coach may ask me to help out when they are light on parent helpers, but after seeing me try to throw a baseball to a catcher from second base, coach tells me I can go back to my knitting. A couple of the moms have asked if I could teach them. With all of the time we spend at practices and games, we could knit entire wardrobes!
I am going to baseball practice tonight loaded up with Encore Mega and needles, for the students of course. After I get them started, I am going to pull out a skein of our new yarn, Scandalicious and get to work. I am excited for them to see what they can do after they have their basic stitches down.
What I love most about some of these ruffle yarns is that it just takes one skein and a couple hours and you have something that looks like a masterpiece. Don’t get me wrong, I have knit many a complicated pattern but since I am showing folks new to the craft, I want to wow them and Scandalicious will surely do that. It is a very versatile yarn. You can follow the instructions below, in both knit and crochet, for the scarf . But since it’s been flowing into the shops, some of the customer have shared their ideas and projects with me. I saw a great cowl made by sewing two lengths of it together and a shrug made from cutting off the ends and using the tube as the sleeve! Let your imagination run wild with this one and beginner knitters can look like they’ve been at it for years! Share your pictures with us on facebook, twitter or pinterest!

Needles & Hook: Size 7 needle, Size H Hook
Knit Scarf – Shorter, heavily ruffled version
Length: about 36-40”
1. Unfold the ribbon. Fold the ending piece over about 4 inches. The original cast on sts will go through both thicknesses.
2. Cast on 3 sts by sticking needle through the top edge of the netting from right to left.
3. Turn the needle.
4. Insert the needle in to the most left hand st, pull netting through to create a new st, do not drop original st off the needle. Insert needle into middle st , pull netting through to create a new st, do not drop original st off of the needle. Insert needle into the most right hand st, pull netting through to create a new st, do not drop original st off of the needle.
5. Now there are 3 sts on each needle. Let the original 3 sts drop off of the needle.
6. Turn needle and repeat steps 4 & 5.
7. Continue repeating steps 4 & 5 until most of skein is used. At the end, fold the last piece (about 4”) over for the final set of sts so you will knit through both thicknesses. Without turning, bind off just before the end – pulling the middle st over the left hand st, then the right most st over the remaining one. Use a small piece of yarn to anchor the last st in place so it will not unravel.
Longer, less ruffled version:
Length: about 55”.
Work as for the shorter version, casting on and working 2 sts instead of 3 sts.
Length: About 55”.
1. Unfold the ribbon. Fold the ending piece over about 4 inches. The first sts will go through both thicknesses.
2. Loop over crochet hook. Go out about 2” and loop over crochet hook again. Repeat for a 3rd loop on the hook. Pull the 3rd loop through the second loop, then the second loop through the 1st loop. Only 1 loop is on the hook now.
3. Go out about 2” and loop over crochet hook again. Repeat for a 3rd loop on the hook. Pull the 3rd loop through the second loop, then the second loop through the 1st loop.
4. Repeat step 3 until most of skein is used. At end, fold over last 4” or so and work through both thicknesses. When final loop is left on needle, Use a small piece of yarn to anchor the last loop in place so it will not unravel.

Now that my Easter ham is gone and the jelly beans have been eaten, it’s time for me to get set for the next Spring celebration. Wouldn’t mom love a homemade gift this Mother’s day that doesn’t involve elbow macaroni and glitter?
Since I’ve become a mother, I love all the things my son glues and glitters up for Mother’s day. Those paintings and attempts at pottery will be cherished forever. However, my mother and mother-in-law most likely would not appreciate it if I made them a plastic beaded bracelet. But homemade gifts are still cherished, this I know from the great Christmas cowl knit-a-thon I endured just a few months ago. So this year, I have started on new pattern in a favorite yarn and wanted to share it with you.
If you’ve read my blogs before, you might know that I love felting. It’s been a while since I’ve felted anything so I am excited to see how my new washer will do(I guess that means I get the test mitt!). I also came across a couple of charms at a craft fair that I want to sew in at the end. This oven mitt made in Galway is going to be adorable. I love the wide range of colors, it’s perfect to match everyone’s kitchen. Check out the free pattern below.
F439 Galway Oven Mitt PDF download
F439 Galway Oven Mitt
Felted Oven Mitt
Materials: 2 balls Galway Worsted
Needles: US #11 (8.0 mm) double pointed needles, Stitch markers
Gauge: Not important on this project –
about 2.5-3 sts =1”.
NOTE: Galway used double stranded throughout.
Loosely cast on 46 sts and divide onto 3 DPN’s. Join, taking care not to twist and work 1 ridge of garter st as follows: knit 1 round, purl 1 round.
Continue in st st – knitting every round for 15 rounds.
Next round: With a piece of waste cotton, knit next 5 sts. Slide the 5 sts just worked back to the LH needle and picking up the MC yarn, Knit them again. Continue working in st st for 24 additional rounds.
Place a stitch marker at the beginning of the round and between sts 23 & 24. Work decreases at the top of the mitten as follows:
Round 1: * (SSK, knit until 2 sts remain before marker, K2tog), repeat from * once more for second side of mitt.
Round 2: Knit all sts.
Repeat these 2 rounds until a total of 20 sts remain.
Divide sts onto 2 needles and work Kitchener st to join at top of mitt. Weave in ends.
Remove the waste cotton and place the 5 sts at the bottom of the opening onto one DPN and put the 5 sts at the
top of the opening on another DPN. Knit 5 sts from first needle, pick up and knit 3 sts on side between needles, k5 from second needle, pick up and knit 3 sts between needles. Distribute the 16 sts between the 3 needles. Work 10 rounds in st st.
Begin decreases at top of thumb as follows:
Round 1: (K2, k2tog) 4 times.
Round 2: Knit
Round 3: (K1, k2tog) 4 times.
Round 4: Knit
Round 5: (K2tog) 4 times.
Cut yarn and thread onto tapestry needle. Pull yarn through all sts on the needles and pull top of thumb
together. Weave in ends.
Place the mitt in a zippered bag and put in washing machine with a small amount of soap and a pair of old jeans.
Use lowest water level and hottest water temperature possible. All machines work differently so check the progress about halfway through the first wash cycle. Check to make sure that the thumb has not felted to itself.
Depending on machine, and water chemistry and temperatures, two or three cycles may be required to fully felt the mitt. Once felted to desired level, rinse and spin lightly so as to remove excess water, but not create creases. Pull into shape and air dry over a tall bottle.
