Dream in Color: The Field Collection + KAL/CAL Kits

Dream in Color: The Field Collection + KAL/CAL Kits Yarn Folk

We've been holding space for this special yarn for a little while now, and are so pleased to introduce The Field Collection from Dream in Color! There are 32 nature-inspired colors in this gorgeous collection, and it's one of the prettiest palettes ever. We have 16 colors in Lamb & Goat, a beautiful fingering weight blend of 90% New Zealand lambswool and 10% cashmere, and 16 additional colors in Billy Kid Silk, a blend of 70% kid mohair and 30% silk. We couldn't resist including a couple of options in our Plaid KAL/CAL kits (more info below), but we also are planning the Sea Mist shawl, combining the two bases, and are also looking for the perfect colorwork accessory project to show off the subtle tonal hues of Lamb & Goat. ::heart eyes intensify::

    Current open hours are Monday - Thursday, 7am-3:30pm, Friday 8:30am - 5pm and Saturdays, 9am-4pm.

    In-store shopping: masks are optional (but welcome and appreciated).

We're very flexible, so if you had another pattern or design in mind, go for it! And while we have put together kits, the PDF also provides the information you'll need to "build your own"! If you'd like to bypass the PDF (or your email browser isn't showing the option, always a possibility!)--find the Plaid KAL/CAL collection (and the additional information) here. With stranded knitting, double knitting, textural knitting, and surface crochet as options, we hope you'll find something appealing!

    …to inspire

    Have you ever experienced discomfort after a long session of knitting or crocheting? If you have, your particular body mechanics will affect how you experience that discomfort. (For me, if I'm not mindful, my right shoulder tends to creep up carry tension.) Most common complaints involve the hands, wrists, neck, shoulders, and upper back. I wanted to share some focused short yoga practices from Yoga with Adriene, and discovered that someone had already done the work of curating the YouTube playlist I was thinking of--so here it is

    Adriene's approach is generally gentle, and she offers modifications for poses or stretches that might not be accessible to you right now. I think I've used all of these videos at one time or another; I hope you find them to be a useful addition to your crafting self-care!

    Woo hoo the Miles Shirt Jacket in Wool Dreamers Manchelopis is done! Ends woven in, buttons sewn on, blocked and dried. Of course, it's still, somehow 75°F out, but this delicious sweater is standing by for maximum coziness! It's such a simple design, but I'm so impressed with the elegant details--the refined shoulder "seams," the big patch pockets, the folded collar, the shaped shirttail hem--this sweater is more than the sum of its parts.
    And I did start the Pressed Flowers Cardigan, and hope to have more than some 1x1 ribbing to share with you next week! I'm combining Lanas Light in Phlox with Dulce in Opal. (Berroco's Alison Green is pursuing another interesting option, stranding Lanas Light with Aerial Color and solid Aerial--you can see how pretty it is in the Instagram post of her swatch!
