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.
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 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!
Spring is the ideal time for new yarns and patterns that inspire! Having kept the exciting news under wraps for months, Jenny and Stacey finally get to gush about Hawthorne, a yarn line inspired by the neighborhoods in Portland! And for a bright twist, there is also Stroll Brights, a neon-inspired special reserve yarn line. Finally, Jenny and Stacey introduce In Bloom, the new Spring collection featuring 15 patterns from independent designers.
In Bloom is our newest (gorgeous) spring collection, and I’m so thrilled that I get to talk a little more about it! There are fifteen light-weight projects ranging from the pretty little Flora Headscarf in Palette Bluebell to the super detailed lace weight Juliet Cardigan. There’s something for everyone in this collection and it will definitely be my go-to as I prep for warmer weather and clearer skies.
A new week, and a new dishcloth for our 52 Weeks of Dishcloths extravaganza! This is my first contribution: Bee’s Knees.
