The third year of the Indie Untangled Where We Knit yarn club brings together four new indie dyer and designer teams from around the world. Each pair will create a colorway and an accompanying accessory pattern, drawing inspiration from various places where they whip out their works in progress. The club will start in February 2018. Every three months, you will receive one skein of hand-dyed yarn in an exclusive colorway, a PDF pattern that will be exclusive for three months and a special handmade gift based on the theme of each installment.
Here are the teams for 2018 (each of their inspiration photos are shown in the image above, clockwise starting from the top left):
Hue Loco and SweaterFreak Knits
Rugged Beauty: Jenny, who lives in south coastal British Columbia, gets to glimpse the change of seasons in the northern Pacific Northwest from this park just outside her front door. Jenny’s design, and Colorado-based Nicole’s rustic chic colorway, will mirror evergreens being taken over by autumn foliage.
Pandia’s Jewels and C.C. Almon
Puget Sound: Dyer Julia, surrounded by stunning natural beauty in New York’s Hudson Valley, will take inspiration from Brackett’s Landing, a park on Puget Sound in C.C.’s city of Edmonds, where she knits with stunning mountain views.
Little Fox Yarn and Caitlin Hunter
Cool Off: In the heat of August, Dyer Aimee and Caitlin find there are only two options when vacationing in Outer Banks, North Carolina (Aimee) or on the rocky Oregon Coast (Caitlin): float in the ocean or sit on the beach knitting and dream of cooler weather.
Dark Harbour Yarn and Amy van de Laar
The Sea Down Under: The final installment of Where We Knit moves to the other side of the world. Amy is a Kiwi now living in Melbourne, Australia, and takes inspiration from Wellington Harbour in New Zealand, where she once had a partial view of the water from her favorite knitting spot, and where Nikki creates her sea-inspired colorways.
