A quick shop update.
Now available Cottage Sock Yarn from Fleece Artist, colours currently in stock:
Also new, Handmaiden’s Marrakesh and Sea Lace available in 600g cones. While it may seem indulgent, buying yarn on cones allows you to wind off exactly what you need for your weaving or knitting projects, meaning much less waste of those valuable silks. Create individual hand-dyed warp chains in your desired length for sectional beaming.
Happy knitting and weaving,
Starting off the new year with a quick knit, mittens. Pattern is Herringbone Mittens with Poms and is available for free on Ravelry. The pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn, however I used Briggs & Little Tuffy, I used 4mm needles for the cuff, and 5mm for hand. I should have nice warm hands for snow shoeing this season.
While several of my last posts have been about weaving, there has been some knitting.
Jared Flood’s Koolhaas Hat, knitted in Fleece Artist BFL Aran:
Kalajoki socks, a free pattern on Ravelry, knitted with Briggs & Little Durasport.
Plain socks knitted with Noro’s Silk Garden. I was worried I was going to run out of yarn for these socks so I knitted them with a shadow wrap heel.
Tanis Lavallee’s Business Casual, knitted in Arequipa.
Plain socks, also knitted in Arequipa,
