A special issue of KnitScene has arrived at the Hillsborough Yarn Shop.
KnitScene Accessories is filled to the brim with patterns for cowls, mitts, hats, socks, and shawls.
Several techniques are featured as well, and explained in a friendly way. If you've never done colorwork before, or worked a pattern with intentionally dropped stitches, there's enough information in these tutorials to get you through a project with these techniques.
In fact, a small project like a hat or a pair of fingerless mitts is the perfect place to learn a new technique. Short and sweet, then onto the next thing. Little projects with little challenges like these keep me motivated between (and sometimes during) bigger, more involved projects.
Come by the shop to take a closer look!
