Featured Pattern & Yarn
Hitofude (pronounced Hit-Oh-Foo-Dey) is one of the most popular patterns of the last few years, and for very good reason! It's super pretty, extremely wearable, and great for every climate! It does feature lace knitting, so it's not a beginner pattern, but it's also not terribly difficult. It's only $2 and available instore or on Ravelry.
Caryn did hers using hand-dyed Euphoria Knits Frenzy in the colorway "Sun Bleached Jeans" (pictured at right) and it's so beautiful! Caryn always makes great notes on her projects, so you may want to check out her project page to get a little help.

The Tip Jar
Working with color? Try to use similar weight and texture of yarn throughout. Sometimes the colors you want aren't all available in the same brand, but as long as you choose yarns of a similar weight, texture, and care requirements, no one will notice if they're not from the same brand. Example: Cascade 200 and Plymouth Galway can be used interchangeably!
