Jean's Seahorse Sweater

Jean took Sandy's "Tar Heel Sweater" class. The class taught how to make a kid's sweater with the Tar Heel foot on the front and back. However, Jean did not make the sweater with the foot motif. Jean wanted to make her sweater with a seahorse. Her sweater turned out so cute!!! She did such a wonderful job. Way to go Jean for thinking outside the box and make the sweater your own.

The Alpaca Grande Shrug with a Twist and the Anthropologie Capelet

Lynn made the Plymouth Alpaca Grande Shrug that so many have already made. However, Lynn decided not to use the Alpaca Grande, but instead she used Venezia by Cascade Yarns. The Venezia gave the shrug the perfect drape and feel. The yarn is made of 70% merino wool and 30% silk and has a little sheen.

Lynn had some of the Venezia left from making the shrug. Instead of adding the yarn to her stash, she decided to buy a couple more skeins and make the Anthropologie Inspired Capelet .

Way to go Lynn! Two new additions to your wardrobe.
