By the time this post is published, I’ll be on the road to Columbus to attend my first National Needlearts Association Conference! While I’m conferencing, you should check out my top yarn & pom pom picks of the week. :)
Check out YarnTalk, a new online show about knitting, trends, designers, and taking a look at fantastic new patterns.
Jump on week two of the Spring Meadow Scarf knit along with some fern lace!
I love to browse Ravelry, blogs, magazines and Pinterest to round up the 10 patterns I’m most excited about that were released each month. May is a fantastic month to find inspiration because the spring and summer issues of magazines feature lots of interesting lightweight shawls and sweaters, plus fun toys and accessories.
I’ve been thinking a lot this week about the upcoming Worldwide Knit in Public Day, which I wrote about last year. This year, it’s coming up on Saturday, June 13, and what I’ve been thinking about maybe hosting a stitch’n’bitch session in Chicago that weekend. Would you come?
I’ve got a new pattern that was just published in the June issue of I Like Knitting magazine! It’s the perfect summer scarf, designed with the 100% wet spun linen Louet Euroflax sport weight yarn. The full lace ends of the scarf are evocative of a long fringe when contrasted with the single, centered repeat of the English lace surrounded by stockinette. That contrasting stockinette section helps to reinforce the center and combat stretching in this lightweight summer scarf.
Cast on & knit the first section of the Spring Meadow knit along with me – this first week involves gathering supplies and starting the scarf, working 15 repeats of vine lace, which is knit over 4 rows.
