Army of Knitters Mojave Moon Sweater
Heather Dixon, the uber-talented designer behind Army of Knitters has done it again and created another gorgeous sweater using one of our yarns. This one is seriously swoon worthy. Inspired by the Grand Canyon and southwest and native american motifs, her new fall collection is simply beautiful. In her Mojave Moon top, she combines Blue Sky Alpaca's organic cotton for the body and our Pixie Dust Mini yarn for the yoke stitch detail. I cannot wait to make one for me...now what color to choose! Check out the pics below and pattern details here.

Last night I spent some time (ok a LOT of time!) on Ravelry, an easy thing to do! There is so much inspiration on Ravelry. Most of all I wanted to check out what people have been making with our yarns. Below are a bunch of my favorite projects, that I hope will inspire you too. There are many many more on Ravelry, to search for them, just search for our yarns and all these projects will pop up!

New Favorite Free Pattern ~ The Ellie Cowl
This lovely cowl was first knit by my co-worker Susan last year for her sister, Ellie, as a Christmas present. I fell in love immediately and knew we needed the pattern stat! I love how cozy this pattern is as well as the natural colors and hint of sparkle. It is just the ticket for my winter wardrobe. It can be worn two ways, snuggly wrapped around your shoulders or folded and draped around your neck. The design combines 2 skeins of Sister yarn (Ivory shown here) and 1 skein of Pixie Dust (Boho Blush shown here). This pattern is now available as a free download on Ravelry here.
