What to stash this week: Precious love

Mary of Lyrical Knits looked to one of her (and my) comfort watches, Schitt’s Creek, for her latest sweater design. A follow-up to her Fold In the Cheese hat, The JazzaGal is a top-down pullover that features a round yoke with a cascading, teardrop lace pattern. It’s designed to be knit with a strand of fingering yarn held together with a strand of laceweight mohair, or if, unlike David Rose, you can’t pull off mohair, you can use a heavy DK/light worsted yarn. The JazzaGal is available on both Ravelry and Payhip at 30% off with the code preciouslove through this Monday, January 17.

A collage of orange flowers, a hand wearing gray speckled mittens and a skein of gray yarn speckled with orange, pink and gold.For this year’s Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club, Giulia and Stefania of Italy-based Lanivendole partnered with designer Soraya García. Their inspiration was one of the photographs Soraya took when she arrived at her new house in Amsterdam, just before the first lockdown. Giulia and Stefania created Home Blooms, a silvery gray with pops of orange, pink and gold, which they dyed on their A Chic Blend, which is comprised of 60% Brogna wool, 20% alpaca and 20% mohair, bred and spun in Italy.

Soraya used a skein to design her New Age Mittens, which she says are “inspired by the idea of the home as cage and refuge during the days we would soon understand as a new era.” Soraya and I are both fans of the Velvet Underground and the mittens are named after one of their songs.

You can now preorder this special colorway for a limited time on Indie Untangled. Get ready for a new season and grab a skein for Sori’s mittens, plus extra for a matching hat (or several for a matching sweater… seriously, this yarn is amazing).
