Last night was Super-Scarf knitting at the Creation Cafe and a great time was had by all! (At least I think so- I had a great time and I didn't see anyone sulking into their scarves so I'm declaring last night's event a success)

There were fiber crafters of all ages and skill levels and I kept bouncing back and forth between a couple different tables but did manage to sneak in a couple pictures.
And I feel like I need to announce this: I'm actually making progress on my scarf! I'm one of those knitters that always has a thousand projects going but rarely ever finishes one, so this is a big deal for me! It's out of Touchdown (naturally) and I'm super-proud of my super-scarf! And if you would like to send me a picture of YOUR super-scarf made out of Touchdown, I'd love to do a blog entry of all of your wonderful creations! Just send me a picture at and I'll make it happen!

Sip and Knit for Super Scarves

It looks like everyone had so much fun at the last Sip n' Knit, we're going to do it again!

There will be a group knitting Superbowl Scarves on Wednesday, January 19th at the Creation Cafe (337 West 11th Street, Indianapolis 46202) from 6-9 pm.

Kits with yarn and needles will be available for $15, and knitters/crocheters of all ages and skill levels are most welcome! I'm told there will also be food and drink specials for Super Scarf crafters.

*It looks like we will be doing this the third Wednesday of every month until November of this year. I'll try to keep posting these reminders a few days before the meet-up. Hope to see you there and happy crafting!

Alpaca With A Twist Highlander, 3 skeins, Color used: Birch

While the hat does look really awesome in Birch (color 96), why not try making it really your own? We've got some really fun light colors in Highlander that would be sure to showcase the pattern really well while making it your own. I'll be making mine in Wild Pansy, a really pale purple...

(left to right- Lichen, Hawthorne Pink, Wild Pansy (my favorite!) Sandy Beach, Primrose Yellow and Skye Blue)
And if you're making one of the hats from Vogue, we'd love to see it! Send us your pictures at or post them to our Ravelry group to qualify for some awesome prizes. Happy Knitting and have a great day!
