...to anticipate


This shipment took a lackadaisical journey, but as of yesterday afternoon , I am fully restocked with Trendsetter's New York. Which means that Caribou Hills Hat kits are also back in stock. And it means that I can start my Fireworks 4 Day KAL project! Not having the yarn in time for the July 4th holiday and the fact that the holiday fell on my normal day off means I'm not sure about my timeline for this sweater--like last year, it probably won't be a four-day project! But maybe I'll finish with the KAL by July 30?? We'll see! yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

I wanted to take a little space to introduce you to Sewn, Yakima's garment fabric store. Many knitters and crocheters are also sewists, and I'm so delighted that there is an indie option for garment fabric in Central Washington!

Sewn is focused on sustainability, and owner Sierra Hutton stocks natural fibers, deadstock fabrics, and a curated selection of secondhand yardage.  She also offers a selection of indie patterns*, as well as notions and tools. Be sure to check out her gorgeous Instagram feed!

Handknit and handsewn clothing work so well together for that complete Maker lifestyle! 

*If you've only sewn with patterns from the Big Four (Vogue, McCall's, Butterick, and Simplicity), you'll find that most indie pattern instructions are more like what we are used to with modern knitting patterns--step-by-step instructions, with explanation of technique in a glossary. yarnfolk dividing line (2).png

The Snuggle Is Real

I didn't complete this project, but it's VERY close. The pattern is The Snuggle is Real, and I've combined Berroco Ultra Wool with Malabrigo Washted and Neighborhood Fiber Company Suri Loft. The design is a double layer (and due to the mosaic patterning, triple thickness) gaiter-style cowl, with an i-cord drawstring. Once I've finished, I'll make notes about specific modifications to make it work with a single skein of Ultra Wool--I used about 115g, even though I reduced the height by an inch or so. The real MVP here is the Suri Loft--it is DREAMY, and the subtle tonal color is a pretty surprise inside the cowl.
