Dualistic

We all have those single skeins of gorgeous fingering weight yarn, right? You amass these things, with the goal of making socks, or one skeins shawls.

Puget Sound Shawl

Make the small version for a quick one-skein-of-special-fingering-weight-yarn kind of project, and have a saucy kerchief that keeps you looking stylish while warming your neck. Grab a second skein for a luxurious wrap. Both versions have a rhythm that makes you whisper “just one more row…”

But, a few months ago, I installed an app called Tiny Tower on my I-pad, and I gotta tell you, I got hooked. When I was finishing this scarf, my …

Radiation

Waaay back when, before I was born, my folks had a hippie-dippie shop in the town I grew up in called Radiation. They sold bell-bottoms, waterbeds, and other counter-culture goods. The basement of the house I grew up in was the perfect suburban basement, with old couches, a TV, a pool table, and, taking up one whole wall, the wooden, …

There is just something about linen stitch and hand-dyed yarn – the way the stitch plays with color is remarkable. This simple scarf lets you play with that special skein in your stash that you’ve been dying to showcase.
