  • New in: Our Issue 9 Yarn Kits!

    Februar 15, 2023 4 min lesen.

    Hello lovelies,

    today I'm back with a short, but sweet overview of the new kits and yarns we'll have for Issue 9. These are available from March 15 to April 15,or until we run out!

    We'll have six kits for Issue 9 - with 3 new yarns! (And an old favorite returning.)

    Issue 9 Kits

    From left to right:

    Abloom Cardigan | Anne Ginger | Biches & Bûches Le Petit Lambswool

    Abloom Cardigan Kit

     

    Abloom is the perfect layering piece for transitional seasons, designed to be lightweight yet still cosy enough to ward off the early morning or evening chill.

    Inspired by the delicate beauty of spring and the early flowers, small and ethereal, almost wispy, the rib nature of the stitch pattern allows the fabric to move with the body, thus fitting a wide range of body sizes.

    For this cardigan, we're bringing back Biches et Bûches Le Petit Lambswool, a 100% Scottish lambswool yarn that's delightful to knit and wear.

    We've added five shades that would all work beautifully for Abloom - and hopefully with everything in your wardrobe! Get your Abloom Cardigan Kit here.


    Bouquet Sweater | Maria Magnusson | The Fibre Co. Cumbria

    Bouquet Sweater Kit

    Bouquet is the kind of sweater that's effortless to wear and works with everything, and also gets compliments left, right and center.

    It's central lace motif, inspired by the blooming flower beds in the designer's garden, is worked up in a heavier-than-usual-yarn for lace patterns, making it a rhythmic, enjoyable knit.

    I am so delighted that we get to add The Fibre Co.'s Cumbriato our yarn lineup for this release!

    Cumbria is a classic, worsted-weight yarn that knits up with a lovely crisp stitch definition and next-to-skin softness. It combines South American Merino for softness, English Masham wool for warmth, and Argentinian Mohair for lustre and strength.

    A great yarn for everyday knitwear that you want to last a long, long time! Get your Bouquet Sweater Kit here.

    Circle of Life Sweater | Julia Exner | Holst Garn Supersoft

    Circle of Life Sweater KitCircle of Life is inspired by life awakening again in the spring - the first tips of the hyacinths breaking out of the ground, the buds on the trees getting bigger and bigger.
    The comfortable circular yoke sweater features stranded colorwork, Roosimine, and lace, with each section of the yoke representing one stage in the life of a plant.

     

    We're so delighted that we're able to add Holst Garn to our products, starting with their super star Supersoft!

    Supersoft is a classic non-superwash yarn that's perfect for colorwork. It's a blend of 50% Merino and 50% Shetland, making it both soft and durable. Hold it single for a delicate fabric or double to create a DK-weight yarn.

    For Circle of Life, we've put together two kits: one in the original sample colors,and one - as requested by our subscriber flock - in cool blue tones. Get your Circle of Life Sweater Kit here!

    Etamine Sweater | Emma Ducher | De Rerum Natura Ulysse

     

    Etamine Sweater Kit
    Etamine is a delightful spin on a colorwork yoke, inspired by dreaming of a huge garden full of plants.

     

    Worked from the top-down, you start with a comfortable folded neckline before moving on to short rows to shape the neck.

    The colorwork yoke is worked with increases and decreases to create the flower petals.

    One of our all-time favorite (and desert island) yarns, De Rerum Natura's Ulysse is an incredibly soft woollen-spun yarn that shows texture and colorwork off beautifully.

    For Etamine, we've put together kits in the original sample colors. We've also just gotten a big restock of Ulysse, so if you prefer a different color combination, play away!


    Floret Socks | Makenzie Alvarez | Wool & Palette Fingering

    Floret Socks Kit

    The Floret socks are destined to become a stand-out pair in your sock drawer!

    Inspired by the awakening of nature from its winter slumber, they feature a bloom-like lace pattern near the cuff, followed by a repeating faux cable along the top of the foot.

    For this kit, we've added a really special yarn: Wool & Palette's Fingering weight.

    It's a buttery-soft Merino Rambouillet blend entirely sourced and spun in the US.

    Hand-dyed by Emily in her studio with only natural extracts and foraged or home-grown dye materials, it's not only beautiful to knit with, but also to look at - and something extra special!

    Get your Floret Socks Kit - available in two colors - here.

     

    Flowers & Fields Shawl | Natalia Milas | Garthenor Organic Beacons

     

    Flowers & Fields Shawl Kit
    Flowers & Fields is the perfect shawl for in-between seasons - lightweight, but warm enough to keep you cozy during the early spring or fall nights.

     

    Inspired by fields that are just starting to bloom, this shawl is worked up from the tip until it reaches a very wearable asymmetrical triangular shape.

    Flowers & Fields is designed for one of my all-time favorite yarns, Garthenor Organic Beacons,and I am so happy we got our hands on a few more colors to put together these kits!

    Beacons is a blend of Polwarth, Romney and Hebridean transformed into a worsted-spun DK weight yarn. Get your Flowers & Fields Shawl Kit here.

     Tell me - which one do you want to cast on first?

    6 Joyful Spring Knitting Patterns - My Current Favorites!
    6 Joyful Spring Knitting Patterns - My Current Favorites!

    April 10, 2024 4 min lesen.

    Hi lovelies! Spring has sprung here in Berlin – as I am typing this (mid March), the buds on the chestnut tree out the window are a few days away from bursting, the forsythias are in full bloom, and our strawberry plants have started their comeback as well (leaves so far, but Aurin checks every day for berries :)).

    So it's no surprise at all that today's blog post is very much inspired by the sun and the warmer days to come! I have put together a sweet roundup of 6 joyful spring knitting patterns, all of which I'd love to have on my needles soon. (If someone can get me an extra day or two per week to knit (oh, and to spin), I'd love that!)

    The three yarns I've paired them with are my favorite spring / summer yarns: De Rerum Natura's Antigone, a delightful sport-weight linen yarn, Wooldreamers' Saona, a 50% Spanish cotton, 50% Spanish wool blend, and Natissea's Pernelle, our newest spring yarn: A 100% European hemp yarn!

    Get to Know: Pernelle, our first 100% hemp yarn!

    Hi lovelies! As you might know, we are slowly, surely expanding the portfolio of the shop – I am always on the lookout for wonderful sustainable yarns that might fill gaps we still have, and one that was on the list since last summer was an additional spring / summer yarn.

    When I learned about Natissea, a French yarn company dedicated to organic plant yarns, from Audrey Borrego last year, I immediately contacted them to order some samples. As soon as I had Pernelle, their 100% European hemp yarn, on the needles, it was love – grippy, but not ropey, with a lovely drape that only got stronger after a good washing and blocking session.

    The shade cards had me swooning too – a really comprehensive, well-composed range of colors with something for everyone in it, from neutrals to spring-inspired pastels to deep jewel tones.

    So I was so pleased when Natissea accepted us as a stockist – and I am extra excited to introduce Pernelle to you. Our first 100% hemp yarn, perfect for summer tops, T-Shirts, and lightweight sweaters!

    I reached out to Mathilde over at Natissea and she graciously agreed to answer a few questions about Pernelle. I loved reading her answers!

    Issue 11 - in and out by Liza Laird
    Issue 11 - in and out by Liza Laird

    Hello lovelies!

    I am back today with a slightly unusual post that starts with a big, big apology to Liza Laird. Liza is a wonderful author (you might know her book Yoga of Yarn), knitter, teacher and yogi, and we were supposed to publish her beautiful poem "in and out", inspired by the ocean, in our Issue 11, "Seashore".

    While I was putting the final touches on our layout, I realized that we had a spread too many (we always print in increments of 4 pages, or 2 spreads) and inadvertently cut the spread with Liza's poem instead of the photo spread I meant to delete.
