The Balboa Scarf

Posted by Leslie on

February 8, 2019

I am excited to share my next Leslie's List pick with you - Balboa ! This pattern was designed by our very own in house designer, Nicole Milano. Nicole paired 2 beautiful, contrasting skeins of Madelinetosh Merino Light to make this garter stitch scarf on the bias. It will be a fun knit that is versatile to wear.

My color choices from left to right:

Dirty Harry + Upstate

Maiyet + Coquette Deux

Sandstorm + Whiskey Barrel

Leopard + Hi-lo (Nicole's choice)

Rhinebeck Wrap up

I am finally recovered from the whirlwind weekend officially known as the NYS Sheep & Wool Festival, but fondly spoken of as Rhinebeck.  What a crowd and what a beautiful weekend, if not a little too warm in the afternoons.  Only the true hardcore wore their Rhinebeck sweaters more than 2 hours !  A big [...]

The Modern Baby Blanket

Over the last several years the trend in baby knitting has shifted dramatically. Few and far between are the requests for light pinks and blues, but instead a variety of color palettes that have never been associated with baby knits before. None so much more than the new trend in baby blankets. Expectant parents and [...]

What was I doing ?

While getting ready for our UFO registration (more on that to come), I was thinking about some projects that have time simmering a long time.  I began to wonder how many of you have the same questions:-  what needle was I using-  what pattern was I making - what size was I making- do I have [...]

At Sea: Guernsey, Gansey & Arans

We have had Beth Brown-Reinsel (of Knitting Traditions) here many times for workshops and carry many of her books and patterns, among other traditional knitting resources. Imagine our delight and surprise when Interweave Knits Spring 2015 arrived and we found an article featuring Upton [...]

A Knitter's (and crocheter's) Christmas Eve

Each year the holiday season seems to rush by and it is so easy to miss out on the joy of the season.  Laura shared this poem.  We don't now the author, but I know we all share some of the sentiment and I thought it might put a little smile on your face.  After [...]
