May 2019 New and Noteworthy

Wooly Wonka Fibers

First, I wanted to let shoppers know that I will be away on holiday from May 8th through 20th. While the shop will be open during that time, I will not be able to fulfill any orders until I return home, so thank you in advance for your patience. Pattern downloads via Ravelry, however, are available 24/7, as always!

sabino Socks

Next up,  I was really pleased to be asked to design a pair of New Mexico themed socks using my Rhiannon Sock for the newest edition of Nomadic Knits. 

The Arizona/New Mexico themed collection has lots of great patterns, and my Sabino socks are included in that group (see samples above).  Knit using one skein of Copper Rivet, and 3 mini skeins of gradient blues, these are a fun way to tip your toes (pun intended!) into the stranded knitting pool.  For this pattern, please see the edition 3 Ravelry page for this collection.  If you'd like to order a yarn pack, please Contact Me and I'll be glad to get you taken care of.

Also new is the next piece in my Celtic garment collection - a vest themed for Beltane, or May Day. This unisex vest is knit using traditional Fair Isle stranded patterns, and is worked in 5 colors in Finullgarn wool. The hems and bands are worked in a corrugated ribbing, and the garment is constructed using steeks for the arm openings and V-neck. You can find the pattern here on Ravelry, available for immediate PDF download.

A reminder as well about some upcoming teaching dates for me:

SAVE THE DATE(S) - STITCHES MIDWEST

I'm teaching two 6-hour classes at Stitches Midwest this summer, and as well, just got notification that I will be also teaching at the brand-new Stitches Salt Lake City in early October! More details to come on that as I have them but I'm excited about this new event. I will, of course, also have yarn available in The Yarn Guys/Wall of Yarn booth spaces, as well as patterns and kits. You can find all the information about the Midwest event here and hope to see some of you there!

March 2019 New and Noteworthy

Wooly Wonka Fibers

Thank you to everyone who came out to Stitches West, took classes, bought yarn, said hello and generally made that wild and crazy show a little bit more fun! There have been tons of pattern releases over the last several months, so I’ll highlight a few here for you, but as always, any new releases can be found on my Ravelry pattern listing page.

I released Spring Frost, the Imbolc-themed sweater for my Celtic garment collection in 2019. This is a ladies’ sweater knit in fingering-weight yarn with a pretty snowflake pattern at the yoke and on the sleeves, interspersed with stripes. A great way to tackle a slightly more complex colorwork pattern, but not too difficult.

Also of note, The Viking Collection has been released. This 7-piece set features 2 men’s/unisex sweaters, 1 hat, 1 shawl and 3 women’s sweaters, all themed on various Viking-ish things. I’m particularly fond of Astrid, which I had on in the booth on Sunday, if you stopped by.

As well as Brynhild, which is shown here in Nimue Sock in the Gray Goose colorway. This pretty pullover has a scooped neckline and waist shaping incorporated into the twisted stitch patterns of the body. The sleeves feature a bit of a bell-sleeve shape for an extra feminine detail at the cuffs.

I’ll be teaching at The Yarn Guys retreat in Ames, Iowa, next month, and then will head to Stitches Midwest in August if you are looking for a venue I’ll be attending.

Happy knitting!

New Pattern Releases - Early December 2018

Wooly Wonka Fibers

I’ve got several new pattern releases to share with you for December - a few now and a couple others coming closer to the end of the month. Follow any of the links to find the Ravelry pattern page, where these patterns are available for download as a PDF.

First up is Summer End. This is a unisex pullover with just a bit of colorwork. It’s shown here in Rauma Finullgarn, but it can be knit with any fingering-weight yarn of your choosing. This is a great project if you are new to stranded knitting as it uses limited colors and no steeking necessary!

The next release is the Gorse shawl - the next installment in the Ogham pattern collection. This is a 2-skein project, worked in Nimue Sock and shown here in the Buttercup colorway. This long rectangular stole is knit from one short edge to the other, and features two lace patterns representing the thorny tips of the gorse branches, as well as the drooping yellow flower clusters of the plant.

Last but not least is the Calaveras shawl from designer Lori Law. This elongated triangular shawl with an interesting construction and beaded detail uses one skein of Nimue Sock. It is shown here in the colorway Spiced Apple, and was the kick-off pattern for the Celtic Year Shawl Club for the Samhain Festival.
