Your Slip is Showing
Your Slip is Showing is a boomerang-shaped shawl by designer Casapinka. It is an opportunity to make a large statement piece using a simple slipped stitch technique, which is meditative to knit as it flows from one color combination to the next in twelve different sections. It uses four different colors of yarn and lends itself well to speckles, tonals or variegated colors, fade sets, or gradient colors. There is a schematic that allows you to plan your shawl colors using colored pens; use it to determine which color will show up at the beginning, middle and end of your project. Stop by to see our sample shown lef in Rita Mae Yarns!
The Shift by Andrea Mowry
This cowl is the perfect all-the-time accessory! It is also the answer for all of those knitters out there who love to knit shawls, but have a hard time styling them. A fun and engaging knit with shifting colors, that flows into an asymmetrical triangle shawl, and it only takes a fiddle-free second to throw it on as the finish to every outfit!
Stop by to see our amazing selection of yarns to complete this project.
Join us for our KAL Saturdays through the summer. We also have a class beginning in May.

Casapinka's No Harm, No Cowl
During Casapinka's visit she introduced us to her “No Harm, No Cowl” pattern. This is a deceptively simple cowl to knit. Purl an extra round, don’t worry about it, leave one out, no big deal; as they say – no harm, no foul.
Knitting should be fun, not about perfection, and you will have fun with this seamless, top down pattern with its constantly changing stitches. It gradually grows to envelope you loosely around the lower part of your neck/upper chest. If you’d like to use a crazy, variegated yarn, go right ahead, you will love this easy to wear design.
It also makes a great Valentine's gift cowl for that special guy in your life. Check out our special line of Rita Mae tonals dyed with this cowl in mind.
Nancy has knit our shop sample, stop by to try it on, you will love it.
