Apple Blossom Shawl KIT, $114.00

Description

Inspired by the fruit bearing blossom that symbolizes heady love, peace, sensuality and fertility, the Apple Blossoms were honored by the ancient Celts as a symbol of love. The feather and fan lace stitch pattern was my first love in the world of lace knitting and by alternating two natural color bands with a simple stripe in a bright, hand dyed color, this shawl symbolizes the bond of mother father & baby. While the geometrically bold pattern would be stunning for anyone, consider this generously sized shawl also as a baby shower gift.

Pattern from the booklet Compliments Collection, designed by Kristin Omdahl.

Tulip Crochet Tiered Cowl KIT, $59.95

 

Description

Gladiolus XOXO Hat & Wristlet Kit, $49.95

Description

Inspired by the Gladiolus, whose rich history spans from Africa through the Mediterranean. The Latin word means sword and symbolizes strength and moral integrity. The flower represents infatuation and suggests that when received will pierce the giver's heart with passion. I suggest this as a cure to the "Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater" since the hugs and kisses (XOXO) branded into the crown of the hat, would be detected by a knitter, but could possibly go undetected by an unassuming love interest. By branding the wristlets with the same hugs and kisses (XOXO) perhaps it can unite you together with love.

Pattern from the booklet Compliments Collection, designed by Kristin Omdahl.

Kit Contains:
2 skeins - Bijou Spun “Bijou Bliss" (50/50 Yak/cormo - Blueberry)
1 copy of the Compliments Collection booklet containing the pattern “Gladiolus Hugs & Kisses Knit Hat & Wristets”

Lily of the Incas Shawlette KIT, $79.95

Description

Inspired by the miniature lily, symbolizing friendship and devotion, this ribbed shawlette is very simple to knit in bands of stockinette and reverse stockinette. The edging is worked sideways in ribbing with a deceptively simple step that creates the beautiful scalloped edge. The ties are knit into the shawlette. This shawlette is the epitome of a knit hug, wrapped & draped delicately yet securely to protect you from cold shoulders.
