After a week of ice storms and being stuck in the house, you have probably seen all the cute internet cat videos possible. So where do you go next? Ravelry.com, of course! You probably know it is a treasure trove of information about yarns, patterns and what's hot in the knitting world. Did you also know that there are forums, and Haus of Yarn has a group? The Haus Knitters are just finishing up a Selfish Knitting KAL (knit-a-long). Check out all these awesome finished sweaters!
We used the Top Down Swing Pullover pattern, which is a perfect pattern for your first sweater or your 30th, because of it's easy construction and flattering fit. By posting to the KAL thread, our participants received advice and encouragement throughout the process! We will start a new KAL soon, and we want to know what you want to knit! Click here to check in with us and let's choose another fun knit-a-long!
When we finally opened on Thursday after being closed all week, UPS brought us a bunch of boxes. One contained this amazing new yarn from HiKoo, Abracadabra! This fun yarn changes color when you put it in the sun! Going from cream to either pink or purple, this is some of the most exciting novelty yarn we've seen in a while! It will gradually turn back to cream once you return indoors. Check out our video!
