Duffers

duffers_1

A project you can complete in just a few hours, what?  You can’t go wrong with these cute little slippers, what a fantastic gift.  We used just one skein of Cascade 220 but the options on color and how you knit them are endless.  You can knit them with two different colors making the bottom a different color than the top.  You can add an embellishment like a flower, button, or needle felt a design directly on the project.  You can hold the yarn double to make a thicker slipper or knit them out of a chunkier weight.  The pattern says using a DK weight yarn held double will work too!  Such a simple pattern knitted either on straight needles or back and forth on a short circular the slippers have only 19 rows.  If you are interested in joining us for some fun this Friday, May 1st from 1:00pm-5:00pm, we are offering a 4 hour workshop.  This will be a fun time to talk, snack, and meet fellow knitters while we all make a pair of Duffers.  The workshop is $25 and includes 1 skein of Cascade 220.  Participants will need to bring a pair of size 11 straight or circular needles, darning needle, and the pattern. The pattern can be purchased on Ravelry click here.  Just give us a call to sign up 405-310-3636.

Kika KAL

L & B will be hosting our spring knit-a-long beginning Tuesday, April 7th from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  We will be knitting Kika by Olga-Burava-Kefelian a versatile triangular shaped shawl that transforms from a garment to an accessory.  Worked with custom pattern that creates differently textured looks on each side lends this knit to be completely reversible.

You can check out the pattern by clicking here.  The name Kika translates to geometry in Japanese.  While searching for the perfect DK weight yarn for this spring knit we decided to knit our Kika out of Rowan Purelife Revive, a yarn that is made up of completely recycled fibers (silk, cotton, and viscose).

This is quite a large project so we are planning on four meeting dates over a four month time span: April 7th, May 5th, June 2nd, and July 7th, each evening is a Tuesday and we will be here at the store knitting from 5:30pm-7:00pm.  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
