Sharing the LYS Love!
The second annual Local Yarn Store Day was a fun, hopping day at Yarn Folk. While most of the free pattern offers have expired, I ordered enough yarn to ensure that some of the goodness would be available even if you couldn’t make it to the shop for the event. Above, is Knitted Wit’s Worsted in “LYS Giggles,” and there are more pics below.
You can see Saturday’s patterns here. Designers were generous in sharing them with shops for LYS Day, but they can still be purchased on Ravelry—and there are some inspiring choices!
Some of the yarns we featured on LYS Day 2019—
Top, Dream in Color BFL/Cashmere/Silk fingering in the Grand Canyon Centennial colorway, with coordinating tonal semi-solids.
Below, Knitted Wit Glow Up Sixlets (six 45-yard mini skeins in the neon rainbow), plus coordinating colors of Victory Fingering. See the Glow Up Pattern Collection here.
Andrea Mowry’s The Shift is a bandana style cowl, and we’ve seen many great versions. The style lends itself to invention, as it is a great canvas for texture or colorwork, and can be worked flat or in the round. Take a look at some inspiring examples here, including Aroha Knits Kahurungi Cowl, pictured above.
This week Arcana moved into the brioche! Preparations for LYS Day kept me busy, so my knitting time was limited. I’m happy to have finished the first section of Mosaic Moons, the Brioche Pearl section, and most of the first Brioche Moon repeat.
Yarns are Malabrigo Sock (Cote d’Azure (navy) and Marte (rust red), and a skein of Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio Sock in Basquiat.
