Audrey of The Conifer Collective has opened preorders for her BFF Collection. This collection of 12 colorways — five variegated and seven tonals — is “a throwback to growing up with your besties and all the good memories that come along with it.” Audrey worked with two of her besties to come up with the colorway names, including Friendship Bracelet, Pillow Fort and M.A.S.H. (remember that game?!).
The colorways are available on five bases, including a brand-new 100% Grade A Mulberry silk fingering, and a full mini skein set. There are also sweet BFF necklace stickers. The preorder closes this Sunday, May 7, at 11:59 p.m. Mountain Time and the yarn will ship in six to eight weeks.
Textured Knits is Paula Pereira’s first published book with Laine Publishing, releasing June 2, and I’m thrilled to offer it as a preorder! Paula is a lovely person and talented designer who I had the pleasure of working with on the Indie Untangled Where We Knit Yarn Club.
Her striped Espedito pullover from the book was designed with Lanivendole’s A Pure and Simple Wool. I was so excited about the release of this unique knit that I put together colors from the selection of this yarn in the IU shop. The pullover comes in five sizes — 36 (44, 52, 60, 68)” 91 (112, 132, 152, 173) cm — with a recommended 2–6″ / 5–15 cm of positive ease.
For sizes 1-3, you’ll need six skeins, one each of Scintille, Orione, Anice, Ranuncolo, Marinai and Pompei. For size 4 you’ll need nine skeins: one of Scintille, Orione and Anice and two of Ranuncolo, Marinai and Pompei. For size 5, you’ll need 13 skeins: one of Scintille and two of Orione, Anice, Ranuncolo, Marinai and Pompei.
