In like a Lion...

I think we can all agree that March has roared onto the scene! While we can't wait for warmer weather, we also couldn't let go of the hit of the season - the infinity scarf!


Margaux grabbed a few bright color skeins of Spud & Chloe, a pair of size 15 needles and worked this little charmer in a day.

The broken rib is a simple stitch pattern is easy and can be adaptable to any weight of yarn!


There's only a few more days until March will make it's change to a lamb, so if you're in need of that last minute scarf, the "Lion" scarf is a great one to whip out - and fast!

Happy Knitting!

Hoboken Parade Day!

Saturday March 6th was the annual Hoboken St. Patrick's Day Parade. I was honored as the Community Service Award recipient. My husband Adam and I were invited to march in the parade.

We were humbled to march directly behind the Irish Woman of the Year, Carol Ann Wilson. The parade also honored prominent Hobokenites including the Grand Marshal, Bernadette Cunning Perhson, and state dignitaries including Senators Menendez, Lautenberg, and former Senator Kenny.

As we approached 4th Street, we could see the Patricia's Yarns group cheering us on in matching t-shirts! Thank you everyone! This made our day!

I would especially like to thank all of the people who help to make Patricia's Yarn's charity events special - you are the reason I was awarded this year. Thank you also to the Hoboken Saint Patrick's Day Parade Committee! We had a wonderful time this year and look forward to a great celebration again next year! We'll be the ones in the parade behind the Patricia's Yarns banner. Below are a few more pics from yesterday. As you can see, the Irish eyes were smiling. It was a beautiful day in Hoboken!

Rowan Brings Hints of Spring

Mother nature continues to tease with sporadic nice days when I start to believe spring may be around the corner and then bam - another snowy nor'easter. Well that was February - March is underway so lets see what it brings.

UPS has delivered hints of spring with new Calmer and Handknit Cotton in happy colors!! Look for yourself!

Two new books have arrived as well from Rowan, Magazine 47

and Rowan Miniature Classics which is an adorable book with 16 fantastic designs for children from birth to age 3.
This much knit-spiration makes for happiness regardless of what mother nature throws our way. Happy Knitting.
