I’m super excited for the first pattern release of 2015! The Sugarplum infinity scarf has a simple stitch pattern creates a spiraling lace reminiscent of the pirouetting dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy. This fun project is perfect for that that special skein of fingering weight yarn that you have tucked away in your stash. The lace pattern really shows off in hand painted yarns while is interesting enough for semisolid colorways.
Sugarplum is the perfect three season accessory. Wear it this winter on the outside of your coat or wrapped twice around your neck to keep the chill out. During the warmer months pair it with your favorite top for a pop of color.
Introductory priced at $2.99 on Ravelry until January 20th. Grab that special skein of fingering weight yarn and get your knit on in 2015!
2015 is going to bring a few changes in the label line-up for Cedar Hill Farm Company yarns. The first change to announce is the addition of a new yarn altogether: JOURNEY. Because it marks the beginning of a new direction for our yarns, and because it is ideal for lacey and cable-y socks and shawls, we think that this is the yarn that you will want with you on whatever your 2015 journey may be. 100% superwash, this 4-ply Merino is squishy-soft and absolutely luxurious! Journey yarns are hand painted in very small batches of 3 and 4 hanks to ensure that colors are vivid and uniform, and because of the nature of our dye process, each hank retains a one-of-a-kind quality.
In the spirit of going on a journey, all of the colorways of this collection will be named for the spectacular destinations that are worthy of anyone’s bucket list. Even if you are unable to travel there, you can wear the colors of the world’s most beautiful landscapes and cityscapes. Each colorway in this label debut has a story to tell, as well. For example, Avignon is so named for the lavender gardens that surround the stone monastery of Abbaye de Senanque near the historic town on Avignon, France. The colorway Cappadocia, of course, is named for the area in Anatolia, Turkey, where the landscape is rich with cordovan and the colors of desert sands. Additional colorways making their debut include: Lerwick, Glen Coe, and Norris Point.
Also, look for Journey as a featured yarn in Tangledmania’s “Knit-the-Book” event in 2015. One of these color ways will be used to knit the Ivy Trellis Mittens from Alana Dakos’ Botanical Knits.
JOURNEY is now available in limited quantities in the Cedar Hill Farm Company shop at Zibbet.com.
Between winter in Idaho and the dye pot, my hands have been taking a beating. I started working on a hand balm that would absorb quickly, but work on winter hands. It didn’t take long before I branched out into soaps. Who knew chocolate soap would smell so good in the shower? The first batch of Carrot Seed Hand Balm for Needleworkers is now in my Etsy shop, along with a couple of batches of cold process, hand milled soap. The chocolate soap is my favorite, but French Rose with Chocolate Chip and Chunky Money are very popular!
The matching Palamon Hat and Arcite Cowl patterns have been released. This hat and cowl feature two slip stitch patterns, which makes this a great design for variegated or semi-solid yarns. Knit with a worsted weight yarn (sample uses Malabrigo Worsted Merino), each one is a quick knit to help keep you warm this winter. Patterns are available on Ravelry separately or together as an eBook and are on sale through January 15, 2015. (Quick note on the names: Palamon and Arcite are the main characters in “The Knight’s Tale,” part of the Canterbury Tales by Geoffrey Chaucer.)
Now thru February 1st, C.Whitney Knits will be offering Valentine’s Day Mystery Skeins!
Using Design Seeds palettes for inspiration, there are two variations available, “St. Valentine’s Day Reds” or “Candy Hearts.” One is for the lover of light and fluffy, the other is dark and sensual. If you order more than one of the same colorway, all skeins will match unless otherwise directed.
