Corgis for the Holidays

What is better than Corgis, butts and yarn? Putting them both on pins!

Knitmas is Coming!

Celebrate the 12 Days of Knitmas with a limited edition kit from Marianated Yarns featuring Katinka Designs! There are two design choices — a shawl and a poncho, and the kit comes complete with all the yarn you need (there are five color choices for each kit), a pattern from Katy Carroll of Katinka Designs, notions, treats and fun extras, too. All you need are knitting needles.

The shawl is a fun challenge for an adventurous beginner as well as an engaging knit for the more advanced. It’s triangular in shape and starts with two stitches and uses slipped stitches for eye-catching stripes of color.

The poncho is an intermediate to advanced knit with its asymmetrical shape that includes cable detail and a subtle color shift.

Both kits are available for preorder now on my website (click the Visit This Shop link). Kits will start shipping December 15th and the pattern will be released after that. There will also be a KAL in the Katinka Designs group on Ravelry.

BitMarkers – STEM-themed writable stitch markers!

We’re excited to announce our first small product for fiber enthusiasts who are also STEM enthusiasts – BitMarkers!

This set of eight stitch markers are made from circuit board material and feature gold-plated binary numbers, with the corresponding decimal number covered by purple soldermask underneath. They’re great for anyone wanting to learn binary, or for anyone wanting to show off their nerd cred! The best part is that they feature a smooth white back, which you can write on with a permanent fine marker. Erase with a little bit of rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover. They’ll only fit a few abbreviations, but now you can have a tiny reminder with your project. BitMarkers also come with a set of coil-less pins, for crocheters or for marking individual stitches.

We also couldn’t resist the siren call of sweater weather, and on a whim, decided to make some helpful raglan markers. Knitting from the top down? Our Tops Down Raglan set includes four M1L and four M1R markers to help keep your increases straight (or more accurately, leaning in the proper direction)! Knitting from the bottom up? Our Bottoms Up Raglan set includes four K2tog and four SSK markers, with the handy chart symbols. Because one of these days I WILL actually memorize which is which and won’t have to consciously think about it, or so I keep telling myself. Both sets have blank white backs for writing your own abbreviated reminders.

We have even more STEM x Textiles ideas we’ll be rolling out in the next year, be sure to join our newsletter to be the first to hear about them!
