Yarn Review: Arien

February 17, 2017

Arien is a unique yarn that you can really have fun with!  

Arien

The above swatch was knit with size US 10 needle.  Arien knits up easily on metal needles - no splitting.  Although the yarn is flat in some areas, there is no problem with twisting.  

The fabric produced has a nice, structured feel and would be fantastic for a boxy tank or other garment where structure is desired.  

Play with your needle sizes!

Yarn Review: Eowyn

February 17, 2017

Eowyn knits up in a soft, drapey fabric with a very subtle shimmer.

Eowyn

The above swatch was knit using size US 8 needles.  Although Eowyn is flat in some areas, there is no problem with twisting.  Eowyn glides nicely off metal needles; not too slippery.  The nylon gives Eowyn some elasticity so it's nice to work with.

Free Pattern Friday: Mara Shawl

February 17, 2017
Need a simple project for social knitting? The Mara shawl by Madelinetosh is perfect! 
Mara is a cute triangle shawl done in easy-peasy garter stitch from the top down and is trimmed with a pleated border.  The pattern calls for 3 skeins of yummy Tosh DK
Mara is a great way to show off speckles! 
The pattern is flexible so you can make this shawl bigger or a smaller shawlette size. 
Can't wait to cast on?  You can get the yarn here.  The pattern is free with the purchase of the yarn to make it. Just mention it at checkout.
Happy Knitting! 

Yarn Review: Pima 100

February 16, 2017

Cotton is usually a little harder on the hands to work with due to it's inelasiticity but Pima 100 is a joy to knit with!   Maybe it's due to the smoothness of the yarn.  Pima 100 glides so easily off the needles without being too slippery and wasn't at all splitty. 

Pima 100

The swatch was knit using size US 7 bamboo needles.  The fabric was a little loose so if you like more structure, going down a needle size may help. The fabric is soft and light with great stitch definition and feels so nice next to skin. Pima 100 is a great yarn to work with in warmer weather.
