What a slouch!

By Betty, November 6, 2009 1:38 pm

Miss A needed a new hat now that the weather is getting cool. I used this as an excuse to head over to one of the two new yarn stores by my house. She came with me and picked out some Lorna’s Laces Shepherd’s Worsted. The color she picked as called Pilsen and is brown with shades of pink (and a bit of purple). She was also nice enough to humor me as we looked around the store.

Although the yarn’s weight was off, I decided to make Ripley by Ysolda Teague. It is such a cute pattern and fun to knit. I love how the pleats give it the perfect amount of slouch. She looks so stylish and I don’t even have to fuss with her hat. I made the version with more slouch and the lacy brim.

I’m also thinking about making a matching neck warmer with the lacy edging and maybe some mittens. I’ll have to head back to the store to get some more yarn. Too bad ;)

The new yarn stores, by the way, are:

Michigan Custom Boutique & Fine Yarns in downtown Plymouth, MI. They have a rather pitiful website but the shop is lovely.

Center Street Knits in downtown Northville, MI. Their website is here and this shop is also very lovely.

Both of theses are 100x better than the other shop that is close to me (and now I don’t have to go there again!).

    Wow!I was so excited to find your blog. Not only did I find out about two new knitting stores I had no idea existed, but I love your patterns as well.

    AND I’m thrilled to be able to support a fellow Livonian! :)
