FO Friday!!! The final edition!

There were other FOs that came through the door this week but in the frenzy this week I neglected to photograph them - sorry about that! The only one we captured this week was last night when things were a bit less crazy. This is the perfect final FO. Thank you, Faith.

Faith finished up this "Marlene" out of Malabrigo. The pattern is from Hat Couture by Theressa Silver (available for purchase as an e-book here).


Thank you, everyone, well... for everything. Thank you for your business and your friendship. I couldn't have done it without you.

All the best,


FO Friday!!!

Thanks, Clenise, for our two FOs this week!

How sweet is this little hat with the buttons?!?!?  Clenise used Malabrigo Organic Cotton and a sweet crochet pattern whose name I do not know. Lucky baby!

The second of Clenise's FOs is the "Art Deco Faux Cables Scarf" from Tanis Gray's Cozy Knits. She used four skeins of Fleece Artist Himalayan, a gorgeous blend of merino, angora, and nylon. And it's on sale (along with everything else...)!

Thanks, Clenise! Have a great weekend everybody and stay warm!


FO Friday!!!

Lots of lovely FOs to share this week!

Courtney's latest FO is "Chaleur" by Jane Richmond (available for purchase through ravelry). She used Berroco Maya, washed and dried it, and it's absolutely perfect!

Kelly's been hoarding her FOs but we're so glad she decided to share! First up is "Wavelength" designed by Kate Ray and available for purchase through ravelry. She used Madeline Tosh Pashmina - so nice!

Also from Kelly this week is the "Downton Cowl" by Shannon Cook (available for purchase through ravelry). she used Madeline Tosh Vintage in color Tart (love that color).

And also from Kelly is "Lintilla" designed by Martina Behm (available for purchase through ravelry). For "Lintilla" Miss Kelly used Malabrigo Sock.

Lastly but not leastly from Kelly are these sweet socks knit out of Biscotte and Cie sock yarn. She knit these for herself - she'll have to smile when she looks at her stripey feet!

Pam! She looks so lovely in her "Vodka Lemonade" by Thea Colman and available for purchase through ravelry. She used Swans Island Organic Washable DK in color Verdigris. It's the perfect marriage of yarn, color, pattern, knitter, wearer!

Karen is now sporting her latest FO "Vodka Gimlet" also designed by Thea Colman (sense a theme?). The pattern is available for purchase through ravelry here. She used Baah yarns Shasta, a machine washable hand dyed yarn out of California. Looks great!

This is my (Stewart) latest FO. It's "Peasy" designed by Heidi Kirrmaier and available for purchase through ravelry. I used Swans Island Organic Washable DK in color Verdigris (just like Pam!). It's destined for my goddaughter in Colorado. I hope she likes it!


Thank you.

After almost 9 years of stitching, laughing, crying, graduations, weddings, births, deaths, and meeting lifelong friends it is with a mixture of heavy heart and anticipation I announce that The Yarn Lounge is closing.  These years have been some of the most fulfilling of my life and for that I cannot thank you enough.

Words cannot express my gratitude for your years of friendship and patronage. It has been my joy to help you select the perfect yarns and patterns, facilitate learning new skills, and seeing your hard work result in a project of which you could be proud.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

FO Friday!!!

We have one FO for you all today, this fun, fabulous and furry vest, the "Fur Gilet" by Erika Knight.  Jennifer made hers using the Erika Knight Fur Wool.  It's quickly become a classic around here and it looks lovely on her.  Nice job Jennifer!


FO Friday!!!

Four great FOs for you this week!

Ashley gets the gold star for perseverance this week! She just finished up her "Traveling Woman" designed by Liz Abinante shawl knit out of Sweet Fiber Sweet Merino Light (from ages ago). There was a good bit of trial and error and Melanie working magic but Ashley did a beautiful job! The color is fantastic on her, too. Nice work! The pattern is available through ravelry in-store purchase.

Jaime, too, pulled out yarn from stash to knit up this "22 Little Clouds" designed by Martina Behm (pattern available free through ravelry). She used Rowan Tweed DK in a gorgeous deep rosey pink. It's perfect for chasing away chilly winter drafts.

Mel - she started working on the Labor Day weekend. I only mention it because it was so hot and sticky that weekend! It was so worth it, as you can tell! She used Classic Elite Blackthorn and chose a pattern in a stitch dictionary to create the gorgeous texture. Very snuggly!

Roz! She's sporting her latest, "Ravello" designed by Isabell Kraemer and available at the shop through ravelry. What's not to love about Berroco Ultra Alpaca? The colors, the generous yardage, the stitch definition. I could go on and on... Roz will get lots of wear out of this one for sure.

Don't forget the Richmond Marathon is tomorrow (Saturday, November 16) so be prepared for crazy road closings, etc. We'll be here whenever you can make it by!
