Knit Glamorous

If you're ever in the mood for a little home away from home the Yarn Garage has a little space for you to set your basket down and click your needles together. But if you ever want to be surrounded by people of like mind who enjoy the same melodious tune that comes from mixing their fiber and creativity, then Wednesday nights is your flare.

There's never a dull moment when sharing the floor with the Glitter Knitter. This Wednesday we revisited the beautiful Be Sweet Convertible Cowl, allowing for this sumptuous piece to share yet more admirers. Being a quick knit it makes for a great last minute gift giving. Made with a mohair boucle with fluffy recycled nubs it's luxurious and adds visual interest.

It can be worn as a cowl or as a wrap. Here's Jesse modeling it as a cowl with Steven himself adorning it as a wrap. It's a free pattern with purchase of Fluffy Nubby Yarn by Be Sweet.


Hermosa Bag in Peacock, it's the largest bag in the Namaste collection. Made with animal friendly faux leather this bag is roomy and chic! (18" W X 14" H X 7" L) Large enough to carry your most cumbersome projects with ease while looking glorious on your shoulder or by your side. Exterior pouches with 2 separate compartments, large pocket in the rear for your patterns, water bottle storage, extra side pocket. Three pockets on the inside (1 zippered pocket and 2 open-top pockets). This is a must have for knitters on the go!
