The Knitter’s of Summit Yarn are one amazing group. They turn out boatloads of stuff. Here is the past week in photoessay and commentary. I am really fortunate to have such an inspired group of women as customers AND friends!

Each kit is $30 and I am happy to ship. Just call or drop and email to me at: email@example.com!
Jordan made Squirrel earrings!
Donna's Mitered Crosses blanket so far...love it!
This is Donna's completed Hitchiker Scarf...pattern available for purchase on Ravelry. It is great for sock yarn and especially for multicolored yarns! I am going to make one for the studio! (in my spare time...snort)
This is Robin in her newest hat and I love this pattern...I think it needs to be socks. The hat pattern is in the most recent issue of Interweave Knits and worked up quickly in the bulky new Juniper Moon Farm Yarn....less than one ball. Next Robin is working up a two color version! Go Robin!
This is my completed Serenity Wrap (pattern available from LYS stores that carry Frog Tree Yarns and Patterns) knit in Alpaca Sport Melange....a beautiful heathered buttery soft alpaca...my favorite alpaca in fact.
Jamie in her completed hat made out of Bijou Basin yarn. She purchased the yarn last Sunday at Rhinebeck and knit it up in about one day. The pattern is 88 stitches on a US7-8...we made it an inch longer than called for (5" instead of 4") and Jamie wisely chose to graft the top closed instead of just pulling the final stitches tight and it looks fabulous. She is already on to the next project, which I believe is a cowl.
close-up of the top of Jamie's hat...this is and eight petal version of Cat Bordhi's favorite toe/heel (which uses 6 petal instead).
And finally, a movie recommendation. My husband found this hilarious subtitled movie on Netflix and I loved it. If you can rent it, do — it was very well done for it’s genre:
The daily dose of cute is to follow next, along with the various adventures and misadventures of the week, so stay tuned for more! Take care and Stay Light!
loads of love, light and laughter always,
Mary Ellen and Summit Yarn
