>Think Outside Of The Clog


One of the gift ideas on our top 10 list is the felted clog pattern from Fiber Trends. It comes in both adult and child sizes. However, one of the great things about felting is that you can easily customize it. You can needle felt a design on them, use special colors… who wouldn’t love clogs striped with school colors?
A great example of customization, Millard embroidered his pair of felted clogs. They are so awesome.
He gives directions on how to do it on Ravelry. Thanks Millard for letting us use your photo. Great job on being so creative.
If you are not on Ravelry yet, what are you waiting for? It is free and fantastic. You can get such great ideas and inspirations. 

>Shop Update

>Things have been hopping here at 3 Kittens. We just received in some Dream In Color Groovy. It is chunky weight wool in fantastic colors. We have a Mountain Colors sock trunk show in until November 14th. Come in and check out the great colors and patterns, not all of them are made with sock weight yarn, so if you have been leery about knitting socks, maybe this is the time to try a heavy weight pattern.

We have some new Tahki Charles yarns in: Tivoli (worsted weight – 52% silk, 48% mohair), Ritratto (DK weight – 28% mohair, 53% rayon, 10% Nylon, 9% polyester) and Stella (worsted weight – 74% silk, 26% Lurex). We have two garments in house that you can come and see.
The first is Alicia done in Tivoli.

The second is Koko in Ritratto.

Both patterns are in Tahki Stacy Charles’ Round Midnight.

Don’t forget to check the main website for information about November’s perk. It is very cool and will help you with your holiday gift list.

Donna’s Bunny Sweater

40 years ago our customer Donna Johnson made a bunny sweater for her baby girl. Just recently, she finished making a sweater for her son’s granddaughter out of the same pattern. Here are some pictures of the darling bunny sweater.
This just goes to show that classic knitting patterns never go out of style!

Needlepoint News

The Susan Treglown trunk show should be here next week sometime. The latest Needlepoint News has a stitch guide for a new purse strap. We will have the canvas for this strap, along with purse canvases. Plus, there will be some Charlie Harper canvases coming.
