Oh Christmas Free, Oh Christmas Free.

The pace in the store, as you might expect, is happily frantic. Everyone is coming in with that wild look in their eyes - "I'm almost done with the 14th pair of socks. I think I have time for another scarf. What do you have in super bulky?"



To help everyone out: a couple of Christmas freebies. Call it a thank-you for being among the first to read the blog. First, if you buy some Lobster Pot 100% cashmere to make Ingrid's "Pinch Me" set - either the fingerless gloves or the neckwarmer or both - you will get the pattern free. If you come in the store or call us, just mention this blog. If you order online, I will automatically include the pattern in your shipment - anytime between now and Christmas. Here is a link to purchase on the site: http://shop.loopsknitting.com/Store/TabID/511/categoryid/765/Default.aspx

The next freebie is courtesy of Peggy, who created this awesome set using Rasta yarn - an aptly named super bulky thick-and-thin from Rio de la Plata. The scarf is just a 1x1 rib (or you can do a 2x2) on size #15 or #17 needles. Peggy has graciously agreed to share her pattern for the hat:



Cast on 40 stitches using #15 - 16" or 24" circular.
K 3 rounds. P 1 round. K until piece measures 6 1/2 inches from beginning.
Begin decreasing, changing to #15 DPN's when needed.
Row 1: *K3, K2tog* to end (32 sts.)
Row 2: Knit.
Row 3: *K2, K2tog* to end (24 sts.)
Row 4: Knit
Row 5: *K1, K2tog* to end (16 sts.)
Row 6: Knit
Row 7: *K2tog* to end (8 sts.)
Cut yarn and pull through last 8 sts. Weave in ends and wear or give away!

And I have some more photos for your "free viewing pleasure." Below is the sexy Ellen (work it baby, work it) in her newest shawl creation, made from two new Muench yarns: Bel Air and Stars.



Next is Sally, ecstatic to be finished (well almost, but we're not counting those weave-ins) with her Louisa Harding "Glisten" cardi. Isn't it great in the gold? We know who will be lookin' all shimmery at her holiday parties.



And lastly, we have Elizabeth's beautiful sock made with Claudia & Co. handpainted yarn. We went crazy for this stuff when Sherry found it in California. I wish you could reach through the computer and touch this sock. It is pure butter - so smooth and drapey.



That's all for now - please do click on the "comments" button and tell us what you think! - Shelley
