This Month's Feature

Maryland Farms

For our Maryland Showcase this month, we have a kit that’s perfect to honor our Maryland agriculture and farms.  Donna Smith designed the famous Baa-ble hat in 2015 for Shetland Wool Week.  Last year, she designed two more accessories to match, which is the Baa-ble cowl and the Baa-ble mittens. We've knitted the cowl which features sheep dancing around your neck.

Approximately 350,000 people are employed in some aspect of agriculture in Maryland making it the largest commercial industry in the state.  It’s also the largest land use in the State, with 32% or 2 million acres of all of our total land used for farming.  Almost 8,000 acres of farm land are certified organic which is something we’re really proud of.

Baable Cowl Kit

We’re celebrating Maryland agriculture with the Baable Cowl kit which is three skeins of our Anacostia Superwash in Worsted weight, a total of 300 yards.  This quick knit project is perfect for a holiday gift or a quick knit for yourself.  If you want to knit the mittens as well, make sure you order two kits so you have enough for both accessories.
