Mother's Day Gift Ideas

 With Mother's Day just a little over a week away, I thought I'd help with some gift ideas!  Here are a few of my favorites...
The perfect bag for carrying projects around!

If she is always looking for her notions, get her a handmade pouch to hold them and she will never loose another stitch marker again

I would love a few skeins of Manos Silk Blend, and I'm sure your Mom would too!

A yard of her favorite fabric would be perfect!

Handmade jewelry is a must have!  A needle case is a great gift to keep her needles organized. 

Stash also has gift certificates available.

Joel Dewberry Aviary 2

One of the first lines of fabric I ever ordered for Stash was Joel Dewberry Aviary (the original collection).  I remember how excited Carol and I were to start the business at The Barn and have a selection of unique yarns and modern fabrics.  The Aviary fabric was and still is my favorite.  I have a few yards "stashed" away, waiting for the special project.  Whenever I go through my stash and come across this fabric, I can't help but smile at the memories.  Which is why I was so excited to see JD come out with Aviary 2. Many of the same fabric prints in my favorite colors along with new colorways.  I'll have to cut a little off each bolt and add it to my existing Aviary collection and stash it away until the perfect project comes along.

New Manos Lace Colors

The newest colors of Manos Lace are amazing!  Manos has always been my go-to yarn.  When I have a project in mind to knit, I tend to gravitate toward Manos.  Now, I'm not one to knit with lace weight yarn nor do I knit lace, but this yarn may just change my mind.  It is the perfect blend of cashmere, silk and baby alpaca and at 439 yards per skein, it is the perfect yarn for your next lace project.  My favorite is the bright blue, named Ella.  Now, on to Ravelry and to search through my books/mags to find the perfect project.  I'm thinking maybe the Feather Weight Cardigan, by Hanna Fettig or the Sockets Harbor Cardigan, also by Hanna Fettig and published in the current issue of Knitscene  Any other suggestions?  What would you knit using Manos Lace?
