The Outer Limits has been released and is now available on Ravelry! Shalimar Yarns will have kit's to make The Outer Limits at the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival this weekend. They will also be carrying the Oktoberfest, Ribbon Street Cowl and Frost in Bloom patterns along with the yarn's to make them. If you are in the area, be sure to stop by the booth. Andy and I will be there and are really looking forward to meeting you.
The Outer Limits is a super fun knit and makes a great gift. Knit it in your school colors, favorite team colors or to coordinate with your winter coat. The pattern is addictive so you may find that you have knit a whole bunch of them and have your holiday knitting done ahead of time!
The pattern requires 210 yards of each color of Breathless. One skein of Breathless in each color will make two hats. You could make them identical, or reverse the colors on the second hat.
Laurie was so kind to test knit this pattern for me. This is her adorable grand daughter who I think may have a future in modeling!
My morning was full of surprises including an email from John Warley asking if he could write about me on his blog. If you have a moment hop on over to his blog and check it out. I just finished his book, Bethesda's Child. Not only is it a great read, but it has a surprise ending which I really enjoyed. I really think the blog post he wrote is to shame me into starting his socks and sending them to him. There is nothing like calling a knitter out in public!
