Lucky Locals: Projects We Love


Projects We Love

Think Spring!

Just because the weather is threatening to turn to warm breezes and sweet smells doesn’t mean the knitting and crocheting season has come to a close! It is just time to adjust your thinking from warm and cozy to light and airy! Lighter bases, smaller projects and transitional layers are a great way to accessorize for a Michigan spring and the unpredictable weather it brings.

The sweet half pie shawlette seen in the above picture was both knit and designed by Ypsilanti native Alex Tinsley. She designed the pattern especially to show off the beauty of gradient yarns! This simple yet textured piece is just the right size for a spring layer and the Muse base keeps it light and drapey. Check out her blog dull roar to see her complete profile and to check out the many other patterns she has designed.

Firefly KL

The Evolving Stole above was knit by alysania. She modified this FREE PATTERN by Val Campion to remove a border which was intended to be knit on after completion of the stole and added on a bit of garter stitch instead. This is a great example of how we can all customize a pattern to use an evolution to its full potential. She used a medium cake of our light and airy Kabam in Firefly.
