Step 1: Take a moment to browse our yarns to find your favorite Pantone pinks and blues! Billow in Tea Rose and Palette in Blush are some of my favorite pale pinks while to Aloft in Sky and Wool of the Andes Clarity are the perfect pale blues but almost every yarn line has a color (or five!) that fit right in to this palette.

6 Ways to Wear the Colorblock Collection

Spring is nearly here and after a long, grey winter – we’re looking forward to adding bright and bold pops of color into our knitting. Our new Colorblock collection checks off every color craving that we have with fun, wearable patterns that can be as colorful as you choose!

We’ve chosen three patterns from our new Colorblock collection and styled each two different ways. Let’s get started with a colorful top that is made for the transitional weather of spring, the Unblocked Tunic!

We Heart Preciosa Fingering + Staff Projects!

Though I have loved many Knit Picks yarns over the course of my recent project making, Preciosa Fingering Tonal Yarn might perhaps be my all-time favorite. The colors are spectacular, the softness is unmatched, and projects made in this yarn come out looking so very dreamy. For a while, I swore off fingering weight projects. I just wasn’t getting through them efficiently, and they would often be left in my knitting basket, as works in progress, for months and months. Preciosa Tonal Fingering Yarn is bringing me back to this yarn weight single handedly (or single ply-edly? haha). Here are some staff projects we’ve recently completed, if you’d like to see.
