New Look for Knitting by Pam and Donna

Donna and I have been busy updating our new look over the past few months. 
We hired a graphic artist to assign us with this process. 
Check out our new logo!

We think this logo captures Donna and I pretty well. I love that our initials stay the same even if you turned the logo upside down. I guess our mother named us well.

This is the banner we are using at our outdoor events. 

We hope to see you at one of our events soon!

Pillow Decor

Most of this year my sister and I have been re-decorating our living room. 
Let us show you some of the progress we have made.

As you can see we have a knitting theme going on with the use of pillows and the ladder to hold afghans. This is a never ending project as we see other things that would look nice and we plan on making some of these items.

We made these four pillows to match our couch.

A friend saw our pillows on Facebook and asked us to make two for her in navy blue and dark grey.

Of course you can have a lot of fun with pillows. Check these two out.

Both the owl and sheep pillows were make by Knitting by Pam and Donna and have been purchased by customers  - but you get the idea of how much fun you can have decorating with pillows.

In the future as we continue making home decor items I will make sure to promote them on our blog as well as other social media sites.

Winter Knitting

So I haven't blogged much recently. 
We were settling in for our winter knitting I guess.
 Take a look at some things that we made this winter.

For some afghans come to mind during the winter.

This Steeler afghan was made for a neighbor. 
She had the yarn and wanted someone to make an afghan for her. 
Donna crocheted one for her.

I made this afghan for a colleague at work. 
She wanted an afghan made in navy and cream colored yarn. 
It was made in panels and sewn together.

Hats and mittens are other things that come to mind in the winter.

This hat was made for our friend Maggie. 
For Maggie "More is More." 
So instead of one flower she wanted a cluster of three flowers.

A Swissvale Farmers Market customer contacted us about making this gray flower hat for her Mom.

Another neighbor asked us to make her mittens using cranberry colored yarn. 

I even thought of myself this winter. 
I made a kerchief wrap using Caron Cakes Yarn. 
I have been really excited to make something using this yarn. 
I wasn't disappointed!

The last week of 2016 I made these candle wraps. 
It was my intention to have a different color for every month - orders got in the way and I didn't follow through. 
Thank heavens I made them using a neutral color so we can enjoy them all year.

Stay tuned for what we will be up to this spring and summer!

Experimenting Time of Year

After the Holiday Craft Shows and the big holiday push Knitting by Pam and Donna sometimes has a little down time. That is when we like to experiment with new patterns and different yarns.

The week between Christmas and New Years Pam has been experimenting with some different cowl patterns - take a look.

This cowl is called the Seed Stitch Cowl. I made it using Misti Alpaca Chunky - 100% Baby Alpaca Yarn. 

This cowl is called Ribbed Cowl with Rolled Border. This cowl is also made using Misti Alpaca Chunky - 100% Baby Alpaca Yarn.

This cowl is called the Baker Moss Stitch Cowl Made using Cloudborn Highland Roving - 100% Highland Wool.

This cowl is called Stockinette Stitch Cowl with Ribbed Border. It is made using Cloudborn Fibers 100% Superwash Merino Wool Bulky.

Let us know what you think of these cowl patterns.

Happy New Year!
