The Buzz at WEBS – October 28, 2011

This week the staff at WEBS is buzzing about…


1. I love Day Beret pattern from Knitbot’s Snack Size Series. I knit it to go in our holiday catalog and it was so fast. I think I started it on Wednesday and finished it by Friday morning. It’s great to knit over a weekend and add to your box of stashed gifts. I loved working with The Fibre Co. Acadia yarn too. I normally am not a fan of yarn with slubs, but for some reason, paired with the simple hat, I really liked it. I can see knitting another one (or three) in other colors, and maybe even playing with stripes! > Mary K.-H.

2. This knitting technique video I shot with Tina teaches you how to knit cables!  I’m about halfway through my first pair of Kelbourne Woolens Give a Hoot Mittens using Valley Yarns Northampton and I’m just about ready to knit my first cable ever!  This will be a great resource for me as a new knitter. > Lindsey P.

3. I’m excited to try the SMC Tweed Deluxe. It has and interesting crochet chain construction around a separate fiber core. As a crocheter the idea of crocheting a chain with a crochet chain yarn is so meta! > Sara D.

4. Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted – Every time my sister comes up to visit she gushes about this yarn. Color #630 Bittersweet is her favorite and it’s definitely mine too. It’s super soft, holds up well and it’s great to work with, so it’ll be fun to whip up a Christmas present for her out of this yarn. It’s so soft against the skin, I think a cowl would be perfect. > Grace H.

5. Right now, what’s on my mind is the 8th Annual Hot Chocolate Run for Safe Passage! We’ve got a lot of WEBS staffers signed up for it and Cara and I are trying to gather a contingent of staffers to knit while walking it. > Kirstin H.

Warning: Temptation Ahead!

The staff and customers have been super jazzed about our brand new trunk show from KnitBot, designed by Hannah Fettig. If you are not familiar with her name correct this immediately. These need-to-have basics are versatile and flattering to a wide range of body types, and they’re just so wicked cute!

The Featherweight Cardigan is one of the most popular patterns and arguably the most basic. I would gladly pair this with every sundress known to man and then some. Knit in Fibre Co Canopy Fingering in Obsidian, modeled by Mary.

Emma looks fabulous in the Effortless Cardigan. Knit in gauzy and light Malabrigo Lace.

I fell in love with the Sunnyside Cardigan knit in Fibre co Savannah. The simple style and stitch patterning make it a go-with-anything kinda sweater.

Doesn’t Greta look like she owns this sweater already? I’ve determined it’s an absolute must-knit for her! Spring Ribbed Cardigan, shown in Fibre Co Savannah.

Gail won’t admit it, but she looks stunning in the Contented Cardi, knit in Fibre Co Worsted (color is Blue Crown). I’m tempted to knit this in secret for Gail, and finally out-give the notoriously generous Gail!

Just in case there are any shorties out there like Karen I thought I’d show Karen and Gail side-by-side. A flattering garment on all it can be shortened or lengthened and the back detail can be moved up or down! (Karen’s version is knit in Classic Elite Inca Alpaca, color 1114).

Can you tell why we are absolutely wild about this trunk show? Hey locals, come down and check it out! We will be displaying these tasty garments all through next week. Don’t miss out!

Happy Knitting
