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:

August 2-4, 2019

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!

January 2019 New and Noteworthy

Wooly Wonka Fibers

Happy New Year! I hope your 2019 is off to a great start so far! I’m excited to share the next in the Celtic Collection I’m releasing over the course of the year. This is Yule, a richly cabled unisex pullover. It’s knit using a tweedy DK-weight yarn (the sample is knit from Rauma Yarns Strikkegarn, but you could easily substitute in Wooly Wonka Fibers’ Aeslin DK if you’d like it in a hand-dyed version.) The pattern is available currently on Ravelry as an instant download.

Yule sweater

The sweater is knit from the bottom hem up in pieces, and then seamed together. The sleeves are also worked in pieces, with a cabled saddle shoulder detail and then set into the body. The hems are trimmed with a 2x2 ribbing, as is the neckline. The construction features modified dropped shoulders for a comfortable fit. The stylized staghorn cables give a nod to the stag, which is a symbol of the Solstice and the turning of the year from darkness into light.
