Knitted By - Robyn Lebovitz from PA
Yarn Used - Sirdar Snuggly Crofter Baby Fair Isle Effect - a lovely dk weight yarn which gives a patterned effect with no effort. Robyn used it to it's fullest potential in this gorgeous baby set.
Mods Used - Not a single mod here.
Tell Us About This - Robyn made this set for a baby shower gift. It's sure to be the hit of the day. The sweater is knit in one piece starting at the back hem, up and over to the fronts. It's quite simple and ingenious.

Crocheted By: Allison
Yarn Used: Magnum by Cascade Yarns - a super bulky, ginormous hank of wool. Instant gratification in great winter colors.
Mods Used: The designer recommended making 12 chains, which is of course just a suggestion, and I found that I had just enough yarn to make 11, and wrap them, so that's what I did. If I did this again, I'd probably chain 10 or so fewer.
Tell Us About This: This was a quick, fun project which resulted in a great impact piece. I really enjoyed making it, and will probably make one again in the near future. The Magnum yarn is softer than I expected, and has a heather quality to the color which adds to the beauty. I'm glad I didn't make it in pink or purple, because Mary's had her eye on this one. At least she doesn't wear a lot of mustard.

Knitted By - Charlene Curry
Yarn Used - Theodora's Foliage by Theodora's Pearls, a gorgeous 100% bamboo fingering weight yarn, held doubled.
Mods Used - Charlene cleverly added beads. I think you'll agree it was the right choice
Tell Us About This - Here's a copy of Charlene's email, so you can get it in her own words -
Back in August, I was in your shop looking for just the perfect yarn to make a cowl for my Secret Knitting Santa and Mary was so helpful in pointing me to Theodora's Foliage (100% bamboo) in Electric Purple by DizzyLettuce. The recipient LOVES purple! Mary suggested I double the yarn to make gauge and it turned out beautifully!
I added beads and I am so pleased with the finished product and wanted you to see it, so here are a couple of photos.
Thank you so much, Mary, for steering me toward just the right yarn for this project!
