People typically associate sweaters with snow or falling digits. But in reality a sweater is just a knit item, cardigan, pullover, that can be made in any weight or any fiber content. I love three or four season sweaters. My closet is full of Andrea Mowry’s So Faded. I have made it in fingering weight wool and fingering weight cotton.
Until recently I never made a pair of mittens. What changed? The coalescence of two events. We are launching a new charity crafting initiative and mittens are on the list of donations for one charity. Seemed simple enough. But what really jumpstarted my knitting (I can make a pretty quick hat after all), was the snow event. Trying to clear off your car with fingerless mitts just isn’t fun.
Yes, I am doing another So Faded Sweater. This will be my sixth one! I could argue that it was started for our So Faded sweater class, but I have to admit I am addicted to fades. I also love Meadowcroft Dyeworks Rockshelter Sock yarn and our new yarn, Cross Creek Sock
I finally found a way to use the beautiful ITO yarn Gima by pairing it with Juniper Moon Farm Findley, and using it to make Isabell Kraemer's Yume sweater with a beautiful lace yoke.
We are very excited to open the store back up for customers. We have compiled a list of precautions we are taking and asking you to take to keep everyone safe through this difficult time.
