We’ve brought a new member onto the Lost City Knits team! She’s great at standing still and willing to have her photo taken any time we ask. What a trooper.

Monarch Shawl
This morning I draped the newest Monarch Shawl over her shoulders while she stood quietly on the studio porch next to the yarn I dyed yesterday. Then I escorted her off the porch and into the sideyard of the studio (also known as the pet cemetery but I didn’t tell her that).

The problem is that we don’t know what to call her. If you’ve got an idea we’re having a contest on the Fans of Lost City Knits Ravelry Forum. Join the group (yes only members can participate) and post your name idea in the appropriate thread. People can show their appreciation of your cleverness by hitting the “LOVE” button. I’ll chose a name on September 13th. 
The winner will get a skein of Lost City Knits yarn. Chose from colorways in either Wool Tussah Silk Fingering, Worsted or Lost City Knits Sock. 

And the new Monarch? That’s knit in our Wool Tussah Silk Worsted colorway Wild Plums. 


  1. I've entered my suggestion – the one Mom and I have – we call Beulah. Apparently we have a great great aunt by that name – and when I found out I named everything Beulah. (I was 12)
    Love the new Monarch!
