It Grows! The Ribby Pulli has arrived at a fabulous place – the UnderArm!

Usually, this area is un-named, shunned and ignored until it misbehaving self twitches our nose while it’s just saying howdy. Today we celebrate the UnderArm! Today, it is a milestone for us and we will sing its praise!

Because today is the day we can let it graduate and become a YOKE – full of promise, joining with sleeves to make a whole.

But oops, better go make the da** sleeves…

This morning something funny happened to my wallet. I got an email from these folks and was going to Be a Big Fat Enabler (Again) and show you the Goods but ZOOM! This stuff went so fast it disappeared before my very eyes while I was reaching for the plastic. So I’ll be a BFE anyways and

tell you to sign up HERE
on their notify list for
some really cool sales.

    I stalk Herrschners religiously Wednesday afternoons. I find alot of the best stuff goes before the e-mails go out.

  3. Leslie says:

    I’m loving that ribbi pulli. And thanks to you, I’m now signed up for Hershner’s emails. (Grrr)

  4. Lolly says:

    The Pulli is so great. Like the turning of the heel on the sock, the yoking is my fave part of the circular sweater! :)

  5. Gina says:

    Hooray for the underarm! I am hoping to get my Ribby Shell up to the underarms tonight at knitting.

  6. Terry says:

    Lovely color and great progress on the sweater – looks “purdy”! Got a kick out of BFE – never heard of the acronym but sure labels lotsa knitters:) Thanks B!

    Bad, bad enabler. I already have a pullover’s worth of Silky Wool on back order from Webs for that same price so I didn’t miss out too badly. I did sign up for the newsletter, though!

  8. Jennifer says:

    I get those updates from that store. Means, I’m tempted often… :-) Pulli is looking so, so good!

  9. Darci says:

    You are mean….

  10. Ce-Ce says:

    Yeah, I can’t even look at my emails from Herrschner’s right now. It’s too dangerous. I love the Pulli!

  11. cleo says:

    i’m confused…are Ribbi Pulli and Ribbi Shell the same pieces?

  12. Macoco says:

    The pulli looks great – all hail the UnderArm! ;)

  13. Bonne Marie says:

    Hi Cleo – the Ribby Pulli was first seen on Chic Knits in 2002 – it has sleeves and a mock turtleneck…

    The Ribby Shell is a sleevelsess v-neck tank top.
