Mother’s day is just around the corner, and what wonderful day it is to celebrate your Mother, Grandmother and any mother figure that may be in your life. My husband has been asking me for over a week what do I want for mother’s day? So for days I wondered what gift could you give to that special woman in your life to show her how much she is loved? Hugs and kisses form our little ones are truly the best gift ever! Then it dawned on me, a hand knitted hand bag. I love handbags and have a great assortment at home. But the one thing I am missing is a hand knitted handbag for myself. I always get caught up knitting for everyone else that I never finish any projects for myself. So I decided that I was going to finally pick a pattern and knit myself a knitted handbag. I sent my husband out to the store to pick up all the items I was going to need and told him that was what I wanted. Along with a few hours of quiet time, so I may finish my handbag. I am choosing to do pattern P593. I love the summer look of this pattern. If you are interested in finding out how to get this pattern, please click the link to find a yarn shop in your area.
What was your favorite hand knitting project? Whether it was for yourself, your friend, mother or grandmother. I would love to know what projects are being made for the special people in your lives
From all of us at Plymouth Yarn Company, Inc., to every Grandmother, Mother, Aunt and Daughter. We want to wish you a very Happy Mother’s Day!!

My name is Sarah Punderson and I design for Plymouth Yarn. I initiated a group with the teacher Margi Wright to teach the students how to knit or crochet and make hats for babies in the Dominican Republic. It’s a great way to broaden the number of knitters/crocheters and gain awareness for the Village Mountain Mission Project.
A former Spanish teacher from Monsignor Donovan High School runs the mission programming for the Village Mountain Mission Project. (it is not a religious mission) Groups of students, usually, go down for 9 days and build houses. Thank you Plymouth for donating yarn to this project.

Baby Boutique is the perfect baby yarn for Kathy’s cardigan–
Love the football buttons!
Knit in size 1-2 years in Baby Boutique, it took 6 balls of blue, and 1 each of white and brown.
The traditional cable pattern makes this a great staple garment for any child. I like how the hoods’ cable detail adds a sporty finish.

Ellen Davis, one of our yarn reps, has shared a pullover she has made for her daughter Shannon in Worsted Merino Superwash.
7 skeins of Worsted Merino Superwash
Shannon is working on her Masters Degree at Nanjing Normal University in Nanjing, China. The public buildings in China are not heated, so she will get a lot of use out of her cozy sweater.
The pattern is by Elizabeth Lavold, published in The Best of Knitter’s Arans and Celtics.
Ellen liked the yarn because the fabric was very luscious. I can see it is also beautiful for cable work. Her celtic knots/cables are divine!
Thank you Helen and Shannon for sharing!

Hello, I am Mary in the customer service department. Last week, my family and I were fortunate enough to vacation in Nags Head, North Carolina, The Outer Banks. Being at the beach is one of my most favorite things in life!
I took some time and stopped to visit Knitting Addiction just up the road in Southern Shores. Wooohoo, what a nice yarn shop. The nicest I’ve seen! I had a chance to meet the owner, Jeanne Shrader, her staff and tour her beautiful shop. I also learned that Jeanne is a Volunteer Fire Fighter.
This shop has an amazing amount of square footage and is a yarn lover’s paradise! There is an amazing supply of Plymouth’s yarns and patterns. The displays in this shop make choosing your next project a breeze. Sample garments and patterns are displayed prominently over the available colors of that particular yarn. To finish your project, you can pick from the many notions she carries.
I have talked to Jeanne on the phone numerous times and it was nice to meet her in person and put a face to the voice.
