I wove in the last end Thursday night. Isn’t it pretty? I had enough yarn left to start a quick little baby hat from the book 60 Quick Baby Knits
I am making the Ruffled Cloche.
I don’t have a specific baby in mind yet, just wanted to use some of the left over Kraemer Perfection from my afghan. Speaking of Perfection, we got a shipment in yesterday. The shelf looks so pretty with all it’s colors back! Also speaking of new stuff, the boxes are starting to pile up around here with all the goodness that is arriving. Be sure to come by and see what’s new soon.

Our shipment of Kraemer Yarns Sterling Silk and Silver in Princess Pink has arrived! This is the color used in the picture on our Shoulder Bling Shawl.
Knit it in White Veil and it would be perfect for a lovely Spring bride. Worked in Tuxedo it would be great with that little black dress.
You will need 2 skeins for the 60″ shawl and 3 for the 80″ version.

Since I am enjoying knitting on my Entrelac Blanket I thought I would take some time today to tell you about the yarn I am using, Perfection by Kraemer Yarns.
Perfection is a worsted weight yarn with 200 yds/3.5 ounce skein. It is 30% Domestic Merino and 70% Acrylic, machine washable and tumble dry. The merino part makes it much softer that other wool/acrylic blends on the market and it feels heavenly! It is currently available in 40 luscious colors with that color range expected to increase to 48 this quarter. We keep all colors in stock, so you can start your project as soon as you dream it up. If, by some odd chance we do not have enough of a color you need – I am more that happy to order plenty for you. Kraemer is fantastic about shipping so you will have minimal delays.
I think that certain things need to be machine washable. Baby stuff, afghans… that sort of stuff. This yarn is just as it is billed, Perfection! At $5.95/skein it is also affordable. Something I think we can all appreciate.
The best part? Kraemer yarns are spun right here in the USA in Nazareth, Pennsylvania. When I was growing up my Dad worked in the auto plants in Detroit. I have a deeply ingrained sense of “Buy American” and I was thrilled to find Kraemer yarns.
