looking for a fun, quick traveling project to take away this holiday weekend? no need to think twice—just cake up a skein of yarn, grab two sets of circular needles, download this pattern, and you are packed for the weekend.
you won’t need another project because this one is so addictive.
it starts off at the top with easy, mindless maneuvers—shorter rows all in garter stitch; exactly what you need while riding in the car, waiting in an airport lounge, or chatting with family and friends.
there’s quite a bit of luscious garter stitch texture to carry you right through your travel and settling in phase of the weekend—the perfect vehicle for getting comfy with a yummy yarn choice. mine is our better breakfast fingering yarn in the mocha shade, yum, yum.
you’ll probably be well relaxed and ready for a change of pace just when your top part gets to the right length. and presto! the hem begins just in time to buoy your interest.
but it’s not just any hem—this one is two hems in one, sooo much fun to see it tick off the needles.
the smallest size of this shawl can be knit with one skein of yarn and a few spare vacay days or evenings. it’s a great newbie shawl project, too—simple to start with just enough going on that it doesn’t look like a beginner work.
it makes a smart little layering piece to keep or give as a gift.
but if small shawls aren’t your thing, the pattern includes two more (taller) sizes.
as with its crescent sister, love me two times, the size is generous enough to wrap in a variety of ways
and with the reversible option there’s no limit.

i know that some of our friends who’ve been doing the ravelry KAL for love me two times are just about ready for a new project to start—join us in the mothership group with any yarn, any size, any pace, any deadline. barb is going to create that thread very soon
we’ll be back at the great lakes fiber show this weekend in the same spot as last year; please come by to say hello and see what’s new in out booth.
We also have retreat classes going on here at the shop on friday evening and sunday as well as yarn tasting on monday morning to end the weekend on sweet note. it’s not too late to join in; email us and we’ll get you signed up.
our rollout of the new mohair yarn selections begins on saturday morning—we have very limited stock in these yarns right now (we are spreading what we have between the site, the boutique and the wool show), so online quantities will be small at first. we will also have some at the show as well as in our shop—come by and take a look!
and if we don’t see you here, have a safe, wonderful holiday weekend—enjoy every minute!
