All the beautiful people, all the beautiful knits! Wow!
VKL was a blast and mostly for all the great fiber friends. Thanks so much for stopping by the booth! It is always so nice to meet you in person and see all those incredible hand-mades.
I have brought the last little bit of my collaboration moon pouches with ShelliCan back from New York and they are listed in the webshop now. Scoop one up quick if you were wanting one!
There is nothing like seeing a bunch of gorgeous knits to get inspired and motivated! I got to try out the Tectonic Sweater from Emily Greene while at VKL (and by that I mean I took it and wore it the entire day long!! ). It really is such a great take on a cozy raglan sweatshirt. You can find Smoke on Elder here to get working on your own!
Two new patterns from Jacqueline Cieslak are about to drop! They feature our Priestess DK in Aquarius (Jacqui's zodiac sign, entering into Aquarius season!!) and they are a great introduction into brioche knitting if you haven't tried that before. You can start to gather materials here.
Knitter's Backpack pins for the true fans, Blue/Black on Priestess DK (what a great Cozy Raglan or Tectonic Sweater that could be!!), Agate on Priestess DK (maybe this for the new WaterBearer Sweater?), something sparkly for your project bag
Things I like 🖤
Since we are diving right in to making all the things, I thought it might be fun to do a little roundup of the knitting tutorials that I've been using to help me make my knits look more polished. I refer to these A LOT!
The Kitchener Stitch tutorial from Purl Soho. a great knitting skill to have. I use this video sometimes if I forget how to get started.
I never really liked the was short rows looked in my knitting until I discovered German Short Rows! This video from VeryPink Knits explains it thoroughly.
Another one from Purl Soho since I was just in their shop- the Long Tail Tubular Cast On is my absolute favorite for hats, cuffs, etc.
