Classic Elite Colorblock Bias Wrap

It's still winter, and you are probably tired of all your scarves and shawls. You can knit this Colorblock Bias Wrap in Classic Elite Chateau and Chalet yarn in a jiffy and have an almost instant wardrobe update. So cozy, this wrap will take the place of a jacket in the Spring.


Noro Kureopatora Downtown Cowl

New Noro! Kureopatora is a 100% wool yarn that is soft! Comes in Noro's great bright colorways. Make yourself a cheerful cowl like the Downtown Cowl, free on Ravelry, with just one skein. We did change the pattern just a bit - cast on 210 stitches, and knit the following rounds: 7, 9, 45, 47.


Llama Lace Melange Spring Kerchief

New from Queensland, Llama Lace Melange. This 100% llama fingering weight yarn is so so soft with great drape. We knit the Spring Kerchief, which calls for holding the yarn doubled, with two skeins. This pattern is easy for beginners, but entertaining enough for accomplished knitters!


A Note from Christina, Organizer of Threads of Kindness:

Hello everyone...I'd like to invite you to join a group that is very near to my heart as I know it is for many of you.  We are working to provide hospice patients in middle Tennessee with a blanket or shawl for a little comfort at a time when they may most need it and preemie blankets and hats to many of the Nashville's Neo-Natal units.  If you think this giving opportunity may be right for you, please reach out to us.  We are fortunate to have generous yarn donations from Haus of Yarn helping us along our way and would love to share our stash with you.
