News From The Yarn Garden

Head Gardener's Log, July 27th, 2020

Make It Monday!

Who could use a hug? This pretty little cowl / poncho wraps you up in a cozy embrace, while the fluffy, soft yarn is a joy to knit with. The unique structure of the yarn creates a thick strand that knits up quickly but keeps the fabric light and lofty. Your kit includes the yarn, pattern, and a coordinating stitch marker from our friend Katie of All Things Katydid!

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.

Just Added!
Jason has been working hard to get many of our yarns listed on our website at Meet ReVerb, an ecologically friendly yarn from Cascade Yarns. ReVerb is a blend of 70% recycled polyester/PET and 30% recycled alpaca fibers; the pairing creates a combination of warmth, softness and durability. If you're interested in seeing how PET is made from plastic water bottles, check out the link in the product page. There's a great video that shows the process!

What's on my Needles
I am powering my way through an adorable tank from the summer issue of Pom Pom Magazine, called Sunwake by Wencke Pertermann. I'm using a fun cotton tape yarn from Gedifra called Arborea. The yarn is dyed using all natural plant dyes and I am LOVING the dark olive green I'm using. I hope to wrap it up this week so I can cast on my SPARK Cardigan by Andrea Mowry. I'm so excited to knit a colorwork sweater and STEEK IT!!

I would love to see what you're working on! Did you know I share a post every Wednesday on YG's Facebook Page for #WIPWednesday? It's a great thread to follow for inspiration and to cheer on your fellow makers. Head over on Wednesday to check it out!

Happy stitching, my friends. Stay safe and healthy and I look forward to hearing from you!
