Behind the Scenes at Cedar Haven Farm

Have you seen our new (utterly adorable!) Sheep Greeting Cards yet? They're here just in time for sending thoughtful "thank you's" or seasons greetings to everyone on your list! This was by far my most favorite photo shoot research and go on and I thought I'd take a moment to show you a few of the cute photos that we didn't use for the cards and tell you a little bit about the Cedar Haven Farm.

Fall Into Creature Comforts

Well, the autumnal equinox was last week and I could feel its effects right away. It was like the earth just decided to skip any transitional weather and cut to the chase. But that's ok with me, because I love fall! I'm ready for snuggling under layers of blankets, resting on a cloud of lovely pillows, and putting down rugs to warm my feet from the hardwood floors in my apartment. Luckily our newest pattern collection, Creature Comforts, is all about warmth and coziness.

Diadem Solids!

Diadem DK was a very special and very limited edition yarn that first made its appearance during last year's epic Cyber Monday sale. The metallic hues were incredible and the plush DK weight of this alpaca silk yarn was absolutely lovely - which is why we are so happy to see this yarn back in an array of saturated solids inspired by prized jewels and gemstones.

New Yarn – The Big Cozy!

We have a brand new yarn out today! The Big Cozy (the name always makes me think of one of my favorite movies, The Big Sleep) is a super bulky alpaca/wool blend that is SO SOFT.  I haven't actually worked with super bulky yarns in years so I figured I should play around with it.  I grabbed the largest needles I own (size 13) and a skein of both Marine Heather and Finnley Heather and decided to make a hat!

Introducing Lindy Chain!

So have you seen our purty new yarn Lindy Chain? I love this yarn!  Before we got it, I'd never used chainette yarn so I was little dubious, but we all had a lot of fun playing with it.

Kitchen Collections – Crocheted Bread Warmer

A while back the Knit Picks team was given a challenge to create a pattern for the crocheted kitchen collection.  And so the Classic Kitchen Crochet Collection was born. I chose to create the Crocheted Bread Warmer. Since I'm crazy about bread and there's nothing better than warm bread or rolls, it seemed like the perfect choice for me! There are two shape options, round or square, in Cotlin yarn.

Hawthorne

  Hawthorne is my newest yarn crush with the lovely color palette, local yarn names (so much fun to pick!) and the wonderfully durable fiber blend it's perfect for so many different projects. Alison has been making baby sweaters, I've seen a few lovely shawls and I've personally made almost four pairs of socks since we got the samples in the office. We also reknit the Gradual Rib Hat from the Geometric Pattern Collection in Rose City and Irvington, I like the new colors even BETTER than the original Stroll colorway!
