Wind Song

Introducing Wind Song, a deceptively easy to knit lace shawl that is perfect for spring and summer.

Wind Song begins with an intuitive lace body that lends itself to relaxing knitting with friends. A simple garter stitch and lace section then leads to an applied border. Which means very few stitches to bind off, and who doesn’t love that?!

I’ve included alternative instructions for skeins of yarn with less than 440 yards such as Marigoldjen’s Stellina Sock.

This is a charted pattern, and I’ve included a magnification of the chart repeats for your convenience. If you haven’t knitted from charts before, this a great pattern to start with. The charts are simple and very easy to follow.

Kits for Wind Song are available from Marigoldjen’s Etsy shop. They are packaged in a lovely organza bag and include a 50% coupon for the pattern. She has several color options to choose from including the ones shown here on the pattern page.

OUTLANDER

We are teaming up with indie dyer Forbidden Woolery to raise tribute to one of our FAVORITE new shows!

Jamie in the Highlands… a.k.a. Outlander…

I have designed an exclusive fabric inspired by this awesome show and it will be on sale in all of our current styles for preorder tomorrow at 9 a.m. PST.

Don’t miss out — this will only be on sale for 4 days, at which point the preorders will close and we will be sewing and dying and enjoying ourselves with JAIME overload. Until they ship at the beginning of May.

Firefly, Princess Bride and Llamicorns!? Oh MY!

That’s right we have all kinds of fun spewing all over the studio!
Join us Friday Feb 10th at 9am PST for a Brand New FireFly fabric that is sure to make you feel all “Shiny”! This is our limited, once monthly bag crack! No obligations, just pick the supplies you like most and then creepily stalk you mail-person. (It’s cool, they like it… I think.)

If Sci-Fi is not your thing- what about Fantasy!? There are a couple of our EXCLUSIVE Princess Bride Project bags still available! These will not last much longer.

And further down the Fantasy path we have the super special Rainbow Knitting Llamicorns. It’s just hard to frown when there are Llamicorns around! They won’t be in the shop long, so make sure you stop by and say “HI!” soon!

Sock Fever!

I don’t know about you, but January has given me a serious case of sock fever! I have more or less cast all WIPs aside in favor of sock knitting, and I can’t seem to cast on enough! If you find yourself to be suffering from sock fever, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Traveler base. Like the Cedar Hill Farm Company website, Traveler has a new look that I know you’ll love! If you haven’t tried superwash British BFL for sock knitting, you have been missing out. This soft, hard-wearing fingering weight yarn is everything you want from a sock yarn with the added advantage of being available in a rainbow of tonal colorways.

And, ever new sock project deserves a new project bag, so also be sure to check out the seven new fabrics available for the double-grommet project bags, including some serious sheep love, yoga farm animals, a trendy floral, and butterflies! Whether you knit two-at-a-time or you have two different sock projects on the needles and want to keep them both close at hand, these 7″ x 9″ bags are perfect for taking your sock projects wherever you go.
