Tuesday we started the Stitch.Rock.Knit-along for the Shawl We? triangle wrap from the current issue of Knit Simple Magazine. Just because we've cast-on though, doesn't mean it's too late to join the fun! The great thing about virtual knit-alongs, is that you participate at your own convenience. Log-on to the Ravelry group thread, or the Facebook page whenever you're ready, and the info will be there for you.Hope to knit-along with you soon!
Stitch.Rock.Knit-alongs are hilarious!

Hip, Hip, Beret
It's just like Vickie to come up with such a great name, perfect for this year-round design by Ellen Gormley. Crocheted in Sheep(ish) colors Taupe(ish) and Pumpkin(ish), the Hip. Hip, Beret has an openwork motif back and striped bands all around. Pick your favorite Sheep(ish) colors and whip up a few berets of your own.
From the Caron pattern archives comes the crocheted Peppermint Puff Baby Blanket, in the One Pound shades Soft Pink and White - perfect for baby girls. The shell and puff stitches not only create texture but are such fun to stitch. Perfect for the baby shower just around the corner.
Designed by Tanis Grey, the Serenity Cardi is knit double-stranded using lightweight Spa, making this piece a true year-round jacket. The feather-and-fan lace stitch is bordered on each repeat with a few rows of garter stitch, providing substance and definition to the lace patterning. Plus, the hood dresses down the cardi so it can be worn just about anywhere!
