Blueberries can be fall themed, at least in the hands of designer Bristol Ivy and Debbie of Murky Depths Dyeworks. For last year’s Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club, the two collaborated on a colorway and two designs inspired by a field of lowbush blueberries that had turned a shade of crimson after the summer. Debbie made a carbon copy of the photo that Bristol took with her colorway called The Barrens.
Bristol took two skeins of Debbie’s yarn and transformed them into a hat and mitts set with gorgeous dip stitches dotting a textured background. She named them Sal, In Autumn, as seen on Ravelry, after the Caldecott Medal-winning children’s book Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey.

With the arrival of mini skein season, Stephanie of SpaceCadet thought it was the perfect time to reintroduce you to her Striad Wrap.

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.
