Happy 4th of July & Blue Sand Cardigan

We hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! We closed for the holiday so I could get some knitting done. Very selfish of me!
I was thrilled to cast on for the Blue Sand Cardigan by La Maison Rilili who also designed the Funky Grandpa. I chose to use similar colors as she, so I went with Madelinetosh Dk in colors Antique Lace, Mica and Dust Bowl. Enjoy the photos!

What to knit or crochet with it was the question.
We searched around and found some really fun patterns.

You can find the yarn on our website or in our Colts Neck, NJ shop.

Sweet Tea Shawl by Cascade

This shawl uses 2 skeins of Tangier on a US 9 needle. You can find the pattern for free on the Cascade Blog.

March Knit A Long

We are SUPER EXCITED to announce our March Knit A Long. Our project is the Inspira Cowl a free pattern on Ravelry by Graphica using Amitola by Louisa Harding. The long, ombre shading of Amitola is perfect for the color work involved in this project. The Inspira Cowl uses long color repeats and stranded knitting technique in a corrugated rib where two different colored yarns are used to create a staggered pattern. This project is worked in the round on circular needles.
We choose to knit the Steampunk version using size US 7 needles or whatever size needle is needed to get gauge of 27 sts x 30 rows = 4 inches.
544 yards/498 meters total of 2 repeat color ways. Main color approx. 332 yards and contrasting color 212 yards. Projects on Ravelry using Amitola used 2 skeins of the main color and 1 cc.
You can purchase the yarn for the Knit a Long here.

Pattern on Ravelry here.
