Malabrigo Silkpaca Spring Kerchief

It's a Spring Kerchief! For this gorgeous and lightweight shawl we used Malabrigo Yarns Silkpaca held doubled. The gradation keeps the simple pattern interesting as you knit. The laceweight yarn held doubled makes a super cozy fabric without being heavy.


Frolicking Feet Leaves on the Line

Here's a great one skein project using Done Roving Frolicking Feet DK Gradients. Super soft and squishy, the Gradient yarn is a perfect compliment to the Leaves on the Line pattern, changing colors just as you begin the lace portion!


Tahki Kismet Good Cheer Tunic

Here's a great transition piece. Knit in Tahki Yarns Kismet, a brushed alpaca-blend that creates lighter-than-air fabrics. Its high-yardage produces pullovers and cardigans with as few as 3 balls! The Good Cheer Tunic, sized Small - 3X, uses just 3 - 5 balls. Knit in a Zig Zag Lace pattern, this simple pattern is easy to knit!


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.
