Yarn Review: Remix Light

January 17, 2017

Remix Light is sure to become a favorite!  It's soft, light, has a slightly tweedy look and is so nice to work with. 

Remix Light

The above swatch was made using size US 5 needles. The yarn glides off metal needles yet is not slippery. Unlike many cotton yarns, Remix Light is not hard on the hands. The fabric produced is next-to-skin soft and has a great drape due to the linen and silk. Remix Light will be a go-to yarn for warm weather garments and accessories.

Free Pattern Friday: Simple Seamless Cowl

January 13, 2017

Add some color to your winter and let the yarn do the work with the Simple Seamless Cowl!

The Simple Seamless Cowl uses 4 balls of Knit Col, a fun, 100% merino self-patterning yarn.

The Simple Seamless Cowl begins with a provisional cast-on and is knit in the round to form a tube.  The beginning and end are then joined together via Kitchner stitch. Colorwork without the work!

Happy Knitting!

Yarn Review: Wild

January 07, 2017

Have fun with Wild

Yarn Review Wild

Wild is soft, light and lofty. The above swatch was made using size US 11 needles. Wild is slippery so bamboo/wood  needles are recommended. Note that Wild is difficult to rip back due to the 'fur'.  Use it alone or strand Wild with another yarn to create a unique look.
