Video tour of the Malabrigo wall

I did a little rearranging of the yarns on the Wall of Malabrigo, and decided to record a short video to walk you through what’s there. Of course, these rich and complex colors are best seen (and squished) in person.

Here’s what Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter has to say about her April knitalong:

“Join me this April for Cable Channel, a stylish pillow featuring an original cable pattern. Knit in HiKoo Kenzie, the design creates a rich fabric to add beauty and texture to any decor. Pillows provide the perfect platform to explore new techniques and hone the finishing skills. They also make great gifts!

Cable Channel is knit in one piece with simple seaming and features a button closure to allow for easy washing and assembly. The front and back are knit in different stitch patterns to keep the project interesting and texturally charming. Both written and charted instructions, along with video support, are provided to guarantee success.”

Have you experienced that moment of dread and disappointment when something goes wrong in your knitting? Do you feel nervous as you knit because you fear making a mistake?

You’ll become a more confident and relaxed knitter if you know how to handle those inevitable mis-knits. In this class, you’ll learn how stitches are formed, how to unknit and unpurl, how to unravel multiple rows and get your work back onto the needles, how to pick up dropped stitches, and much more!

Prerequisite: you should know how to cast on, knit, purl and bind off.

In addition to the Malabrigo stock in the video above, we received some charming embroidery kits from Cozyblue Handmade. Each kit contains a wooden hoop, needle, pre-printed fabric pattern, embroidery floss, basic stitching instructions, and a guide to getting started. The designs are sweet, and the kits make it easy to sample the craft.

Warm days last week may have us dreaming of a balmy springtime, but we know we’re likely to experience…how do we say it nicely…more “transitional” days ahead. Ponchos can be a great option for weather that changes in a flash—easy on, easy off. The Margo Poncho, pictured above, comes in adult and kid sizes, and there are more options in my Poncho bundle on Ravelry.

East Fork Pullover

Not only are wide stripes on kids’ sweaters cute, they work up fast! The East Folk Pullover is worked in pieces and seamed, but the stripes make it easy to match up. The boat neck is wide, making it easy to put on and take off, and the buttons at the shoulders add a little personality.

Origami

Lone Kjeldsen’s Origami is split above the armholes. I’m motivated not only by the desire to have the finished sweater, but I’m also holding out on starting two other tempting projects until I finish this!
