Segue, schmegue.

It's that time "blog photos to use" folder is overflowing, so here comes one of those "etc." posts where nothing necessarily relates to anything else. In fact, let's make it 100 percent segue-free, shall we? Here goes...

Wenche's Norwegian granddaughter in a dress from the book Barefoot Knits - everything from this book is made in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece, as is this darling dress:

New "Cable Brim Hat" pattern co-designed by our own Sherry and her sister, Ann - uses just one skein of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. Look for a class on this hat in August, and a matching scarf pattern coming soon...
(BTW the model is Claire, babysitter extraordinaire).

Sammye's baby set in Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino, from a recent issue of Vogue Knitting (yes, that's two mentions of cashmerino yarns but no, that is not an intentional segue):

Allie's B4 Bag, made from various felting yarns including Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride (I think) and a bunch of fun buttons. Felters, be sure to click on this B4 Bag link and check out the various color combos - gorgeous!

Blanket that Dawn just finished in a simple crochet stitch, made from three different colourways of Blue Sky Organic Cotton. She may offer this as a class in September. What do you think? Now we just need to get her to write up the pattern, if she would ever read this blog or her email (not so subtle hint here, Dawn ;-)

Sweater made by Wenche using leftovers - yes, leftovers - from the Cotton Fleece garments she made for her grandchildren. She just did this pattern out of her head!!!

Um, just a thought here, but Norwegians may be officially smarter than Americans. Probably all that fish they eat - it's brain food, you know.

And yes, okay, there was a segue in there. But I barely even took advantage of it. Really. Although I did exploit the italicize key just a little bit.
