Introducing Muse – Hand Painted and Tonal Yarns

We are SO excited to introduce our newest hand painted yarn, Muse! Worsted weight, hand painted, Merino wool, and machine washable; it checks a lot of boxes, both for our resident yarn nerds and from our most common customer requests. Between the multicolor masterpieces of Hand Painted and sophisticated solids-plus of Tonal, there are lots of ways to enjoy this brilliant and incredibly satisfying yarn.

Our most dedicated customers will remember a smattering of Special Reserve yarns that we introduced at the end of last year that came from Japan.

Meet Erica, New Marketing Coordinator

Hi, I’m Erica, and I’m the new marketing coordinator at Knit Picks! I started out here as the book designer working on our pattern collections, and I quickly became a huge fan girl for all things Knit Picks. I am so excited to be moving into this new role and sharing all that’s good about this company with you!

(That’s me on the left.)

You might be asking yourself: What kind of a knitter is this Erica person anyway?  Well, the first thing I should tell you is that I taught myself to knit back in college. I’m ashamed (and a little proud?) to admit that my first big project was … drum roll … the Queen of Hearts Bikini from Stitch ‘n Bitch: The Knitter’s Handbook.

Knitting is, in some ways, an inherently serene activity that lends itself to quiet evenings in cozy interiors. Amid all the chaos and hustle, our newest collection, Interlude, looks to foster the peace- and comfort-loving home body in every knitter. With simple, generous garments in cozy, soft yarns, these patterns will have you looking for excuses to stay in.

To start, Daniel sits down with Hilary to discuss the collection, with a special focus on the alpaca yarns that bring these lounge-worthy projects to life.

After that, Lee joins Daniel to take up a topic suggested by a Knit Picks follower, that eternal knitters dilemma, works in progress.
