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.
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.
