All About the Blankets – Intarsia Style

Hello Stash Readers!

Hold onto to your hats, not only for the impending fall winds, but because I am making an intarsia baby blanket. You may remember me from my intro podcast or the post about my knitting the Learn to Knit Kit Scarf, if not I will give you a brief introduction. I am the merchandise planner for Knit Picks and new to completed project knitting. I’m great at starting things, but I was always merely dabbling. It wasn’t until I started working here that the bug truly took hold, maybe a little slower than others, but I’ve caught it and have gone a touch off the rails.

Once I mastered the knit stitch, completing my garter stitch scarf, I started another scarf in Tuff Puff practicing stockinette, and that is coming along swimmingly.

Monthly Yarn Sale: 20% off Gloss Yarn

Beautiful Gloss Yarn from knitpicks.com

Fall is here, and I’m ready for a really delicious knitting project that I can dig into. For the month of October, all weights of Gloss yarn (lace, fingering, and DK) are on sale for 20% off! Gloss is one of my favorite yarn families, it’s a beautifully balanced combination of fine Merino wool and shimmering silk. If you haven’t tried it yet, you’re in for a treat – Gloss has great stitch definition and shine, making it perfect for elaborate lace patterns and detailed cables. The silk also helps provide strength, and socks knit with Gloss Fingering hold up far better than 100% wool socks.
