New Patterns!

MFA is carrying some new (to us) patterns from Second Nature Design. Looking for a quick and easy gift? Try these baby booties: This pair was knit in Bunny Hop from Crystal Palace, but the beauty of the pattern is that it's written with instructions for several different gauges, so you can use virtually any yarn. There are samples at the store knit up in Rowan's CashSoft Aran and Anny Blatt Super Angora, too. The booties are knit flat and then seamed up - so beginners aren't fiddling with DPNs on a small project. Seriously - you can complete a pair in an afternoon. Great for a last minute shower gift. Or use up those partial balls of yarn you've got and make a few pair to have on hand or to donate to LilyBugs, wonderful MFA customer Leslie's charity knitting group.

Also from Second Nature Designs, MFA has a great pattern for a beginner fair isle project - your choice of a hat or a bag:

and a cute little linen stitch purse:

Hope to see you soon!
