cooling off

summer is fading and this chickadee is feeling blue...and green...

here's another take on the neighborhood version of the dipped infinity scarf. this is the purples colorway and it is currently available for purchase online! it is a delicious blend of blushing berries knit in the yummiest superwash merino on the market.

you provide the needles and the knitting power, everything else is included in the kit. you'll get the pattern and eight small skeins of yarn with just enough yardage to finish up with few leftovers.

the sample above was hand-dyed and hand-knit by karida of neighborhood fiber co. what an overachiever! and a brilliantly talented one at that.

love is like falling...

...and falling is like this:

this is a sample for neighborhood fiber co using eight different colors of their very own studio sock, a 100% superwash merino fingering weight yarn. the pattern is dipped infinity scarf, by cosmicpluto knits. and you can buy the yarn and the pattern as part of a pre-made kit from nfc's big cartel site.

there are three colorways to choose from, previously blogged about here.

the color change kept this knit fun and interesting. it was exciting to start a new section and to see how it finally turned out. the finished product reminded me of fall, which seems so far away amid these sultry summer days.
