do you know what time it is?
time for a shot of bright, spring color, that’s what! i woke up this morning and decided we needed one around here, so before i run off to catch my plane, i’m releasing this pretty lace little nothing; it’s time.
especially if you are, like many midwesterners this week, sequestered to the house until the frozen world outside thaws a little. here’s one last little sweet thing to celebrate selfish knitting month.
what better way to warm up than to put a gorgeously bright color in your hands and dream on the warm spring days when you will be wearing it.
this pretty scarf, infinity scarf, or stole in lace weight yarn will fill your winter evenings with light—it’s a great ravellenics project too; probably the perfect size for most intermediate knitters
and just the right amount of challenge. join our team; we’d LOVE to have you with us! if you’ve never tried a project with nupps before, this is the perfect way to start—just a few and you can knit your first ones in the company of our awesome ravelry group, either for the olympics or with the ongoing KAL.
or say you have never attempted a provisional caston before—you could try it on the infinity version of this scarf and our group will have your back! then when it’s time to graft the scarf to form a loop, you can work through it step by step using my FREE craftsy class on grafting.
the pattern includes instructions for a flat or infinity scarf, plus the stole. you can knit it with straight edges (right) or with a pretty point ell edging (left).
(sigh; erica and emily look simply stunning in these photos, don’t they? this was their first time modeling for us and they totally rocked it. we had so much fun.)

the pattern includes instructions for three sizes and two edging variations
sugar frost is also included in the FIFC 2012 eBook collection—14 terrific accessory patterns, each one multi-sized and suitable for gifting or keeping; many will have universal appeal for women, men, and children alike. purchase the eBook collection from the knitspot club website or in our ravelry pattern shop (it takes a few seconds to view).
another fun thing to do—click here and here to view the project pages for sugarfrost. see more examples knit by club members and photographed on a variety of people and in alternate yarns. or better yet, join us in our swingin’ FIFC clubhouse or knitspot mothership for a KAL!
speaking of club knits, we put heart and soul into creating wonderful packages with which to surprise our members each month. signups are underway for the soon-to-begin-shipping 2014 bare naked knitspot club—a celebration of the under-discovered side of the fiber world in all its natural, undyed glory.
we scour the globe to find interesting yarns and the fiber story behind them, beautifully photographed and fully researched. each yarn selection is paired with a design that shows its character off to best advantage and sometimes we throw in a cool goodie for fun.
our partners are all small business owners who care deeply about their role in putting farm fresh fiber products into knitters hands.
all of this delivered right to your door, six times per year—what could be better? if that sounds fun to you, come join the flock!
