  • Test Knitting From Issue 7

    April 14, 2022 2 min read

    Can you believe it, Issue 7 has been out in the world for three whole weeks! Since our Joy KAL kicked off on April 1, we've seen so many beautiful projects emerging on Instagram, and with new cast-on's happening all the time, we're so excited to see all the joyful FO's emerge over the coming months.

    If you haven't joined in on the KAL get, don't worry, there is still plenty of time! It's going to be running until May 30, and all you need is to tag a photo of your progress with #MakingStoriesJoyKAL on Instagram. Before you can do that though, you're going to need to decide what to cast on. It's a tough one, with twelve beautiful patterns with Joy at their core, deciding which to knit first is difficult. That's why we thought we'd bring you a little Issue 7 project inspiration with today's post!

    I don't know about you, but I always find it super helpful to check out other makers' projects when I'm planning my own, so today, I want to share some of the stunning projects that were created by our wonderful test knitters.

    It's a simple fact that we wouldn't be here without our test knitters. They share their expertise and time to help us to get our patterns ready for publication, and are a seriously talented group of knitters. I've shared a few projects below to get the inspiration flowing!

    3 Sock Patterns I'm Loving Right Now
    3 Sock Patterns I'm Loving Right Now

    September 30, 2023 2 min read

    Happy Socktober, lovelies!! If you've been following us even for a little while, you've probably noticed that I absolutely love knitting socks.

    They're the perfect portable project, great for trying out new techniques or stitch patterns, and just so, so rewarding. There's just nothing like the feeling of opening your sock drawer on a cold fall morning, picking out the pair of hand-knit socks that calls to you, and walking around with cozy, warm toes all day long.

    I couldn't resist putting together a short, sweet list of 3 sock patterns I'm loving right now to kickstart this month – one makes for excellent TV-knitting, the second one is a bit more complex, and the last one is one that I've been wanting to knit for years!

    My 5 Favorite Patterns for Fluffy Yarns

    Hello lovelies,

    One of my all-time favorite tasks when we get a new yarn in is to put together pattern and color combinations. And with Bérénice, De Rerum Natura's sustainably produced Mohair / Merino / Silk yarn (fluffy like a cloud!), the possibilities for patterns and colors are close to endless!

    I narrowed it down to my five favorite patterns (well, of right now) in color combinations that showcase the full rainbow of Bérénice colors. I've put a ton more patterns over on our Pinterest Board for pattern inspo for fluffy yarns if you're looking for more!

    Now, though, let's take a look at my top 5!

    Can a Silk Mohair Yarn be sustainable?
    Can a Silk Mohair Yarn be sustainable?

    Hi lovelies!

    I'm thrilled to be back in this space, and with something really, really exciting at that! For the past year, I've been on the hunt for a sustainably-produced fluffy yarn - we used to carry Knitting for Olive's Soft Silk Mohair which is delightful, but also... everyone has it now? So I was looking for something that was a little out of the ordinary, but also responsibly sourced, and as it goes with anything that involves mohair and silk, that was really hard.

    Cue De Rerum Natura, who secretly have been working behind the scenes at exactly that yarn I'd been looking for: An "as sustainably as it can get" fluff yarn that works perfectly for a broad range of projects, from whispers of lace shawls to holding it together with more substantial yarns.
