Traditionally, February 29th is the day that a woman can ask a man to marry her. Sure, times have changed but this tradition isn’t so bad. In some European countries, such as Denmark, tradition says any man who refuses a woman’s proposal on February 29 has to buy her 12 pairs of gloves. In Finland, it changes to fabric for a skirt. If it landed me some beautiful fingerless mitts, I might not mind having those instead of a husband some days! Here are some fun and free patterns to celebrate these traditions. Enjoy!

Swatches swatches swatches. I’ve got tons of swatches. But what do you do with them after you get your gauge information? I usually take my swatches and place them on an O ring, and hang them up for future reference. It’s almost like a time capsule when I looks through them– some were for sweaters, some for cowls, other were just to see how the yarn would perform. Since I’ve got an abundance of swatches (as I am sure most knitters do- especially if you are making something to a specific size!) I thought it would be so cute to make a little patchwork blanket. Some yarns I used in my swatch blanket are Monte Donegal, Baby Alpaca Grande, Worsted Merino Superwash, Baby Alpaca Aire.
Separate your swatches by singling out a nice color palette. Don’t color shame yourself– buying similar colors is now a good thing!
I’ve got 12 swatches, each of which are 6″ x 6″. It’s ok if your swatches are all different weights, as long as they are relatively the same size.
Block your swatches.
Weave in any ends. Apparently I don’t weave in my swatch ends very often!
Arrange your swatches in a pleasing order.
Thread your tapestry needle and whip stitch each square together using. Go ahead and skip sts to produce an even finish.
All finished! My blanket looked great without a border. You can add a simple garter stitch border or single crochet along the edges. I am going to keep the blanket edges unfinished so that I can add more swatches!

From the Design Director’s Desk- Cia Abbott Bullemer
This is the color chosen via Pantone the Color Experts. They predict what the colors will be-or do they set the trend-? What follows what? The chicken or the egg…
Here at Plymouth, we have several different yarns that fill this color range already. Consider using one of these for your next cowl, cardigan or baby girl’s cuddly blanket that she will drag around for years to come. It is just a color that radiates warm sunshine, peace and tranquil emotion.
Baby Alpaca Grande color 834. Baby Alpaca Worsted color 8620, Cleo color 139, DeAire color 7713, Dynamo color # 3, Encore color 958 or color 458, Eros color 7107, Galway 132 or 177, Gina color 1 or color 8, Heaven color 55, Jeannee Worsted color 25, Johanne color 10, Kudo color # 54, Oh My color 9624, Pasea color 1014, Toria color 56, Whitney color 2001, Worsted Merino Superwash color 64 and Sahara color 1312.
Is that enough to choose from?

The National Needlearts Association hosted their winter trade show in beautiful and warm Long Beach, CA. Our team was there and loved visiting with some of you in our booths. We hope you enjoyed our newest yarns and garments on display. For those of you who couldn’t make it to the show this year (hopefully, you entered into our While the Boss is Away at TNNA giveaway), we wanted to share some photos with you. Yarn shops-be sure to call your sales reps for the most up to date info on what you see. Knitters & Crocheters-if you see something you must have, call your favorite local yarn shop and make a request.

A Cabled Cravat, “what’s Thot?”, you say. It makes a great looking neckwarmer, that’s Whot. I don’t know why I haven’t made this before. It only takes one skein, a couple of hours, and when you are finished, you will notice it was not boring! Lots of fun for the knitter, and even more for the recipient. I am thinking of making one in every color I can find, plus Baby Alpaca Hand Dye, Tweed, Glow or the newest variety Baby Alpaca Grande Hues.

If you happen to be in Charleston, South Carolina, be sure to stop by and see the gang at Knit.
Gay and her daughter Mollie opened the store just about 7 years ago to share their love of knitting with the community. There is an open knit night on Wednesdays for you to come, relax, chat, sip and knit. Visit the Knit website for shop hours and classes.
