Introducing the Angles and Light collection! Three patterns and five colourways available now.
If this looks familiar, it's because these projects were from my popular 2018 summer club with Andrea Rangel. I know some of you have been waiting all year for these to be available individually and I'm happy to say they're here now!
The crowd favourite last year was the clever, reversible Full Spectrum hat so I've cooked up a couple new colourways with the same striping pattern. This toque is worked from the crown of one hat, through the brim, and to the crown of the other hat. All colourways have a self-striping section on one side, and contrast yarn included for a colour work section on the other.
Another project that, in my humble opinion, would work beautifully with any of the yarn in this collection is Andrea's Slanted Stripes cowl. I knit up a sample in Full Spectrum, and Andrea posted some tips here about working the pattern in self-striping yarn. (Or leftover yarn from other projects, it's a fantastic scrap-buster!)
I quietly added my Whiskey in a Teacup shawl pattern to Ravelry yesterday. Many of you have been patiently waiting for this and I apologize that it has taken me so long to get it ready for you. It's free on Ravelry.
My plan was to wait for a time when I could launch the pattern and the yarn together with great fanfare, but the date kept getting pushed further and further back and so I decided to go with Plan B: release the pattern now. Those of you who already have the yarn in your stashes, here you go!
If it's not already in your stash but you'd like it to be, I've got it carved in stone in my dyeing schedule for this winter.
This yarn was first released last fall and I added it to the shop with a photo of a knitted shawl that I made up as I was going along. Understandably, people wanted to use the yarn to make the shawl in the photo! So I learned a few lessons from that experience - I should always use a pattern for shop samples (even if I really want to knit something else for fun), and if I say I'm going to work on a pattern, either get it done asap or set a firm release date for later on because it can't be "coming soon" forever.
A little peek at our July club project: Sun & Moon. Club members received with the SUN or MOON version of this colourway, and the pattern induces two options for the colour work.
The yarn and pattern are exclusive to the club for a year but we couldn't resist sharing a peek and what we're working on.
