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.")
A Spring Trunk Show!
Our last two COVID trunk shows were great successes, so we figure it's time to do another. We are excited to be welcoming Happy Cat Yarns in late March or early April. Watch for our next newsletter for details.
