Head Gardener's Log, July 20th, 2020
Make It Monday!
The Bachi Ball Shawl takes two of Noro’s giant yarn balls and marries them together in a beautiful riot of color and texture. The two yarns are dyed in the same colorways but Bachi is a smooth wool with a matte finish and pure colors, while Kanzashi is a wild boucle textured strand. The featured project is a simple asymmetric triangle with an easy garter ridge stitch pattern, and the large needles make it a quick knit too! The shawl pictured below was created with Kit Number 7.
Original Price: $92.95
Sale Price: $75
Nomadic Knits, Issue 7: Michigan PREORDER
As a Michigander, I know how beautifully rich our state is, both with the amazing natural resources and beauty AND the talent of our local fiber industry. That's why I am always SO EXCITED when our state is featured by the larger fiber community! This issue of Nomadic Knits is the largest ever, rich with knitting patterns featuring the talents of many local indie dyers (including many of our favorites!), as well as images from around our great state. The knitting patterns include a hat, socks, shawls, and sweaters, and range from fingering weight to worsted and from beginner to advanced. Fall in love with Michigan from the comfort of your home; explore the region with us as you turn the pages, meet the local indie dyers, and pick a new project to cast on.
**This is a preorder** You will receive a digital download code when the digital magazine goes live via email (please verify that your email address is correct at checkout). The print copies should be available for pick up in store by August 31st and we will ship as soon as we can, barring further COVID delays.
