Sue NEVER disappoints

This may not look like a bra to you, but trust us - it's absolutely fabulous! Local knitter & artist extraordinaire, Sue Hobby designed & implemented this entry into the AhHaa School's first annual BRAvo fundraiser. Seeing it on the New Sheridan's runway (aka: the bar) was beyond beyondo! Telluride's volunteer firemen were called into service as models & did not disappoint. Stay tuned for more photos later this week!

2 totally different projects - DONE!

Supermodel, Steve, is shown modeling, "Steve" a hat pattern from the Mirasol Project. I admit to buying this yarn @ another LYS & I'm so glad I did. The cable rib provides a snug fit & the pompom makes the flop over - this pattern would work well in any densely variegated yarn - I definitely plan to make it again.

We love Cath Jett in this ever-so bright yellow shrug. Another Mirasol yarn used with an overall lace pattern & sleeves to hold the whole thing in place. Perfect for our cooler Fall nights or any summer night in Telluride, eh?
