Projects

Nymphalidea

I love to see color combinations in completed projects and this one is absolutely beautiful.  Riddled with a multitude of yarn overs and a loose, open gauge, this shawl will keep you warm without causing you to overheat making it the perfect accent piece.  While Nymphalidea is full of yarn overs, the lace sections of the scarf do not consist of complicated lace patterns, keeping your shawl from becoming overwhelming to knit.  While more involving lace can be fun, you probably don’t want to juggle complicated lace motifs while working with two skeins of yarn.

Carolyn chose to knit her Nymphalidea out of one skein of  Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere and one ball of Crazy Zauberball.  The combination of the tonal Smooshy and the self-striping Zauberball creates a wonderful and unique color gradient.  Choose either a contrasting yarn to create a striking effect or choose a complementing yarn to achieve a more blended effect.

Whichever path you decide to take will present you with a beautiful shawl.  If you are interested in knitting this project you can check out the pattern by clicking here!  Thanks to Carolyn for bringing in her final project, it is lovely!  -B

Matchmaker KAL

L & B will be hosting the 4th session in our winter knit-a-long Tuesday, February 3rd from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  We will be knitting Matchmaker by Martina Behm a versatile triangular shaped cowl perfect for keeping you cozy all winter long.  You can check out the pattern by clicking here.  Martina picked the name “Matchmaker” for this project because she matched two of her favorite hand dyed yarns.  We followed her lead in matching one of our favorite fingering weight merino wools in contrasting colorways, Colinette Yarns Jitterbug.  This pattern is suitable for beginners or more advanced knitters because it is all knit in garter stitch, and lets be honest, who doesn’t love knitting in garter stitch.  This is quite a large project so we are planning on four meeting dates over a four month time span: November 11th, December 9th, January 13th, and February 3rd.  All you need to do to participate is purchase the pattern on Ravelry and buy your yarn at L & B Yarn Co.  This KAL is an awesome way to meet fellow knitters.  Spaces are limited so please sign up by calling 405-310-3636, e-mailing, or coming by the shop to visit. -B

More from The Graphic Knits Trunk Show

As Monday, December 22nd nears we are becoming more and more excited about Alexis Winslow visiting L & B to sign her Graphic Knits books.  Here are a few more garments from the Trunk Show.  This easy cropped cardigan called the Finch Cardigan is perfect for first-time sweater knitters.

I love the shape of this light, airy, Engle Cardigan and you can dress it up with slacks and a button down top or wear it a little more casual with jeans and a t-shirt.  There are minimal seams and the circular shaping on the bottom gives the project visual interest.

All of these projects are absolutely fantastic, but I have to admit, this Minnow Top is one of my favorites.  I love chevron patterning and feminine lacy things so this is the perfect project.  I have several ideas on how I want to wear this, I better get to knitting one for my closet.  Please join us this coming Monday, December 22nd from 6:00pm-8:00pm for The Graphic Knits Trunk Show and book signing with Author of Graphic Knits, Alexis Winslow. -B
