This year’s Westknits Mystery Knitalong starts today! With recent shipments from Meadowcroft Dyeworks, One Twisted Tree, and Malabrigo, there are lots of options in the sock yarn department. I auditioned a few different combos, but this was the one that stuck.
Bonus, if you need some tips for wearing your shawls, check out this instructional video from Westknits alter-ego, Stephen Eastknits. (It features several previous Mystery KAL shawls.) “Boom, you’re in Paris!”
New shipment from Oink Pigments this week, so we have this great Seahawks colorway in three weights–worsted, bulky, and sock! Go Hawks!
Q: What’s more fun than unpacking three boxes from Malabrigo?
A: Not much. (Well, knitting with it…)
PS–included is Mora: new yarn base, 100% silk.
Learning to identity, fix, and ultimately prevent the inevitable mistakes that crop up in your knitting is so empowering. Imagine finding an error and calmly formulating a plan to correct it, instead of a) deciding to leave it or b) starting over and losing hours of work.
Call, email, or stop in to enroll in Saturday’s class!
If you were thinking about joining in the Foolproof Cowl KAL starting tomorrow, the suggested yarn arrived yesterday. It is Scrumptious 4ply from Fyberdpates, and it is aptly named! It is 1/2 merino and 1/2 silk (hence the amazing luster).
