projects

We love projects at JPK&S. We also love process. We never tire of seeing someone come in the store and buy yarn or fabric and leave with an idea of what they want to make (sometimes with a pattern, sometimes not, sometimes it’s just some dream project in their head and sometimes it’s meticulously plotted out on graph paper) and then come in and show us what they have created days, weeks, or months later. This part of our website is dedicated to our community of creators…they inspire us every day and hopefully they will also inspire you.

Lyn + Knit Collage blankets

Meet Lyn. Lyn is a knitter who has a thing for big yarns and big needles. She came to us first to finish up a felted bag that she had been working on for awhile. She then moved on to an awesome Aunt project: making gorgeous Knit Collage throws for all of her nieces. Yes, I said Knit Collage yarns knit up into a throw for all of her nieces. She is on her third blanket. We are so inspired!

Update: Adding a few photos of Lyn’s next finished throw: Knit Collage’s Rolling Stone in Boho. We love it! Stay tuned for the final blanket…Pixie Dust in Azalea Bloom. We can’t wait!

Tiny Sweaters!

There’s still time to make sweaters for everyone in your family! Tiny sweater ornaments, that it. Each year, the local (Rhode Island!) yarn company Berroco releases a new pattern for a mini sweater, called Minutia. Check out the collection! These bitty guys are perfect for personalized ornaments, gift tags, gift card or money holders, or even a hint of something bigger to come.

JPK&S Crafty Holiday Gift Guide #13

Traveling Vines Cowl by Susan Sheby

Your Crafty Gift Guide #13 comes to you via our former staff member and friend of JP Knit & Stitch, Susan Sheby. This one skein cowl (gorgeous in Malabrigo worsted) was designed especially for us by Susan for the Greater Boston Yarn Crawl. We’ve been happily giving it away to customers ever since. A sweet pattern for 1 skein of worsted weight yarn (go lux with cashmere or eco-friendly Swans Island Yarn) and you have a beautiful gift for family or a friend. Stop on by the shop and we would be happy to print you a copy and help you pick out the right yarn for your project.
