A little bit of everywhere...
On our final day, we’re zipping to several different places to catch up on some tips and squeeze in a last adventure.
1284 West Paces Ferry Rd NW
Atlanta, GA 30327
The atmosphere is a fun mix of southern hospitality and power breakfast. Not surprisingly, the food is good, not especially healthy (although there were healthy options if you want to make your companions feel guilty), and plentiful. Great coffee--refilled nearly instantly--rounds out the experience. Dig in--we’re going all over the place today and you’ll need your energy.
3220 Cobb Parkway
Atlanta, GA 30359
A great beginner project that goes beyond the standard scarf or hat, this design shines in the color and texture of Classic Elite Sprout. You’ll not only master yards of stockinette, but a few other skills as well. The ribbon trim ads a spiffy touch, don’t you think?
Malabrigo Uroboro Cowl
From the Malabrigo Book 4, this Stephen West pattern takes one skein of Malabrigo Rasta to create a truly distinct accessory. Make sure you ask for the helpful pattern tweaks to make your knitting easier.
One of the store’s most popular patterns, this ruffly scarf uses Classic Elite Liberty Wool to craft something beyond the basic rectangle. If you’re looking to learn short rows, this is a perfect project for you.
AK Traditions Dolls
I found these knit-able, dress-able dolls from Australia absolutely charming. You won’t find these anywhere else in the area, and can’t you just see one hugged in the arms of some little girl you love?
You may have seen this in the Interweave Knits Spring issue. While I don’t have a picture to show off yet (don’t worry, it’s coming), this lacy shawl is a stunner, and the perfect way to show off Vijay’s Serenade yarn. The drape promises to be fantastic. I chose to knit mine up In a beautiful, slightly shiny china blue. I’m certainly looking forward to this as our Knit Along.
