New Patterns Just In

Greetings  and defibrillations!  I have just gotten 7 new Fiber Trends patterns!  There is something for almost everyone in this batch:

The Tulips & Rosebuds Baby Blanket is definitely a potential heirloom  Knit in fingering weight yarn, this would be a perfect project for Cascade Heritage - which is machine washable.

The Country Weekend Sweater takes excellent advantage of self-striping yarn.  This project would be great in Crystal Palace Mochi Plus, Wisdom Yarns Poems, or Classic Shades.

The Walking the Dog pattern is designed to use odds and ends of left-over sock yarns - very efficient. 

The Swirls Hat is beautiful, but a small enough project it can be made up rather quickly, and carried to appointments so you have something to do in the waiting room.  It takes three colors of worsted weight yarn, creating endless possibilities.

Lupine Lace Socks are elegant and beautiful.  These socks would be best made in either a solid color, or a very light variegated colorway, such as Pagewood "Pretty Pastels" or Tosh "Blue Gingham".

If there is a grandmother out there that can resist the Patrick's Pumpkin hat, I've yet to meet her.   Knit in worsted weight yarn, it could even be part of a Halloween costume.

The Animal Friends Felt Booties remind me of the pink bunny suit in the movie "A Christmas Story" - but I digress.  They would make excellent Christmas gifts.

Purls of wisdom: when walking through the house in the dark, if you step on something cold and wet, just tell yourself it's only a bad dream.  Repeatedly.
