The Fibre Company + Martha Stewart Living!

The January 2012 issue of Martha Stewart Living just arrived on Kate's doorstep {you can read a little bit more about Kate's obsession with Martha Stewart here + here} and we're delighted to share two projects with you that feature Organik, The Purse Stitch Scarf and Adult Handwarmers.

The Purse Stitch Scarf is a long and lacy textured scarf knit out of Organik in Atoll. The pattern itself is deceptively simple, a one row repeat that creates a fabric with a lot of stretch, yet the placement of yarn overs and decreases helps to maintain its structure.

The handwarmers are simplicity at its best - the combination of Organik - the sample is worked in Lichen, a bright sunny yellow - and garter stitch creates a soft, lofty, bouncy and warm fabric, and the construction is perfect for beginners or those looking for a quick project with a lot of potential for both form and function.

With a long car ride for Kate and plane flight for Courtney on the horizon we're both seriously contemplating throwing a few extra skeins of yarn into our bag to whip up some last minute gifts before the holidays come and go.
