Hi lovelies! I'm back this week with one of my favorite types of blog posts – a favorite patterns post! I dug deep into the archives for this one as I wanted to combine our current sale (5 EUR for print copies of our back issues and books!) with my desire for more, more, more summer tops and tees in my wardrobe.
The funny thing? I set out to pick patterns from all the publications we still have in print, and ended up picking three from one: BREEZE. Oh well!
I paired them with some of my favorite shades of summer yarns - and one of them (can you guess which one?) is waiting to jump on my needles right now:
One of our most popular blog posts before we migrated our website two years ago was our non-superwash indie dyer roundup - a list of indie dyers who work with non-superwash yarns. During the move, it ended up in the void of the internet, but it's back now!
Hello, lovelies! Today, we are talking about one of our favorite warm-weather fibers; Linen.
Linen is such a unique fiber, and working with it is extremely rewarding, but it can have its challenge as it doesn't have the elasticity and bounce of wool or other fibers. Due to this, linen yarns sometimes get a bad name, leading knitters to cast on with negative expectations from the start, or even shy away from them altogether!
If you are new to linen yarns they can feel unfamiliar and even a little uncomfortable at first, but with an open mind and all the handy tips and tricks we’re sharing with you in this post, you’ll be binding off your new favorite linen top in no time and wearing it for years to come.
