What to stash this week: Knit, purl and soul

For this year’s Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club, Crystal of Milly’s Knit Designs and Gabby of Plies & Hellhounds were inspired by a photo Gabby captured on holiday with her husband in Paris. They named the resulting colorway and cowl design Meraki (mA-’rak-E), a noun which means the soul, creativity, or love put into something; the essence of yourself that is put into your work. The yarn is dyed on Gabby’s Marie Cutie, a unique fingering-weight base that is comprised of 75% Superwash Corriedale and 25% nylon.

You can now preorder this special colorway for a limited time on Indie Untangled and add a little Parisian flair, and travel memories, to your fall wardrobe.

With the arrival of mini skein season, Stephanie of SpaceCadet thought it was the perfect time to reintroduce you to her Striad Wrap. Stephanie came up with the idea for this clever design while sitting in her knitting chair and noticing how her new lampshade incorporated strips of joined-up triangles to form a globe shape. The Striad Wrap is made up of a series of short row triangles, knit individually in strips and joined together with absolutely no seaming. It was designed for SpaceCadet gradient mini skeins, but would also look great in blocks of color.

The Striad Wrap is 50% off for a limited time when you join Stephanie’s email list.
