Patterns from KALAMAZOO KNITS

I am excited to have a new line of knitting patterns, the company name is Kalamazoo Knits. The reason I am excited is Kalamazoo, Michigan is only 40 miles from our farm - and where we lived "before farm". A group of women published their original knitting designs; the patterns are well written on heavy cardstock, the styles are creative and the projects are perfect for quick, small projects for yourself or gifts.

The patterns include socks, mittens, hats, a really neat 'knit then felt' bag that I think would make a great knitting bag and (my first project of their designs) a shoulder wrap. More great news about the patterns, they are all knit with circular needles!!

This is the photo on "The Anne Shoulder Wrap" pattern, Erica, the distributor, is modeling it.

I will post a photo of my wrap later. First I need to choose the colors I want to use and oh, yes... finish the Magic Loop socks. I still like the Magic Loop technique but I lost my place in the pattern and skipped the whole instep so had to frog it back to the heel.
