Happy mannequins.

Our mannequins may not be as loquacious as the Old Navy ones in the commercials (primarily because ours are headless). Nevertheless, they do appreciate having new, knitted models to show off. After all, we all get bored wearing the same old thing day in and day out, right?

So our mannequins were thrilled when, on the same day, we received a box full of knitted models from our biggest supplier, plus a trunk show from Spud & Chloe!

"Croquet" is made from Grace Hand Dyed Silk & Wool. The pattern is from the Queen of Hearts book. I borrowed this back from the mannequin to wear it in the shop on Thursday...mmm...silky...


The "Aztec Scarf" in Spud & Chloe Sweater yarn is crocheted, and creates two completely different patterns on the front and back of the scarf. Cool!


The mini mannequins got new duds, too. Here's the cutest Fair Isle Yoke Cardigan in Debbie Bliss Rialto DK (great merino superwash). The pattern is from the "9 to 5" book. Really great book, by the way - check out the beret on the front cover.


I don't get the name, but "Hen Hanner" in Mirasol Hacho is uber adorable. It's from Jane Ellison's Mirasol Book 7.


We got another Mirasol model, the Flower Heart Love Blanket, in Tupa silk & wool from Mirasol Book 6. Super-special blanket for a super-special baby.


And this Playground Hoodie in Spud & Chloe Outer is so huggable! I love this bulky cotton/wool blend, squooshy and washable, too.


And now for our last mannequin...oh wait! It's the beautiful Bonnie, modeling her Snooty Snood made from Jade Sapphire Cashmere! She used #10 needles and just two skeins to make this super-scrumptious gift.


Come visit our mannequins soon - they love to be ogled. And if you live out of town, but want to make one of these for yourself, just email (shelley@loopsknitting.com) or call us (877-LOOPSOK) for size information and yarn amounts.
