Local Yarn Store Day 2021--POSTPONED
Our LYS Day sale was scheduled for April 17, but with the shutdown measures, we've decided to put off the sale until May 8. Stay tuned for more info...
Hitchhiker and Hitchhiker Beyond by Martina Behm are classic small shawl/scarf patterns that a knitter of any skill level will enjoy making! Vickie has knit Beyond four times and Hitchhiker once (pictured above). For all but one of these shawls, Vickie used commercially dyed self-patterning sock yarn! It would be fun to watch how the patterns change with just such a yarn--although the luxury of a hand-dyed merino (or merino/cashmere/silk such as this one from Zen Yarn Garden) would also be a joy to knit...and would make a special gift to give! Since it requires just one fingering weight skein, you certainly could splurge on luxury. (Those who have read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy will understand why there are 42 "teeth.")
