This Just In...

Amateur Chemistry Lab has two new products: Lip Sugars and Liquid Soaps. 

 Lip Sugars are an exfoliating scrub that removes dry skin from your lips.  Rub the Lip Sugar on your lips, then either lick or wipe off.  The lip sugars are made with frosting flavoring and are pretty tasty! 

The liquid soap can be used for washing hands or bodies.  Currently, the liquid soap comes in three fragrances: almond, beech breezes and plumeria.

Side to Side Pullover for Women

# 124 – Side to Side Pullover for Women

The easiest summer sweater pattern I know! A simple garter stitch rectangle, with unshaped openings for head and arms. The sleek shaping is formed by the drape of the loosely knit fabric. Uses worsted weight yarn on big needles at a gauge of 14 sts to 4 inches. Shown in cotton, it has cap sleeves, or optional short sleeves. Side seams are sewn. Finished measurements of 30 to 50 inches.

This would be great worked in Casablanca, Pima Silk, Cotton Supreme, and Good Earth.

Yarn this Week - Alpaca Lace

Enjoy a 10% discount all week on Baby Alpaca Lace.

Fiber:100% Baby Alpaca
Yardage:50 gr / 437 yds
Gauge:28 sts = 4" (10 cm) - US 2
Wash:Hand Wash Cold, Lay Flat to Dry
No Bleach

Many Shields Shetland Lace Scarf

This scarf is made in the shetland style of lace knitting. The center (the shields) section is worked from a provisional cast on to the desired length. Then stitches are picked up around the edges, four stitches are provisionally cast on and those four stitches are used to create a simple increase then cast of tooth edging. A small grafting (kitchener’s stitch) is used to ‘sew’ the provisional cast on stitches and the final 4 edge stitches together to make a seamless edging around the center.
The body lace pattern has no rest rows (i.e. every row is a pattern row) but is worked entirely in garter stitch (there are no purls). The directions are written out as well as charted to allow you to work in the method that works best for you.
This pattern could be worked in a heavier yarn with a larger needle. I would not go heavier than fingering weight. There are instructions for adjusting the pattern to make it narrower with that can be used with the heavier yarn to keep the scarf from becoming too wide. They also explain how to make it wider if you would like to make it into a stole.

Yarn Suggestions - Poems Sock, Saki Bamboo, Whisper Lace, Alpaca Lace, Heritage, Kid Seta, Cherub Baby, Baby Ull, On Line Supersocke, or Huasco yarns.
