The Retreat Shawl, worked in the Nutmeg Fibers Retreat base, was my very first shawl design, and (for me at least), it was a doozy! I’d never really thought of myself as much of a shawl knitter, or a shawl wearer for that matter. I loved the idea of shawls and have knit (and frogged) a few, but they’re certainly not a go-to knit for me. My lack of shawl confidence was made very apparent with this project!
So!!! Here we are, at the beginning of June, lots and lots of KALs to join in on. I hope that lots of you are joining in with us here and making yourself a lovely lovely shawl this summer!
So, I’m gonna make something that’s been in my queue since this debuted back in early Spring/late winter. I mentioned it in the last blog post! It’s Dawn Henderson’s Retreat Shawl!
I’m so thrilled that the 3rd issue of our magazine is finally arriving next week from the printer!! I wanted to tell you a little bit more about what will be inside. So, this issue is a collection of 3 patterns and 4 recipes. The theme of this issue is Growth, which seemed perfect for spring, when shoots and blooms and leaves are all pushing their way up from their long winter sleep.
Well, It’s that time of year! Time for me to get a bit crazy in the head with preparations for the multiple trade shows coming up! We wanted to write a quick blog post to let you know about when and where we’ll be! Be sure to come visit us if you're in the New York area this month at Vogue Knitting Live, and in February at Stitches West!
I can hardly believe that it’s been 5 years since I started dyeing yarn in my kitchen for Nutmeg Fibers!!! And also, that I’ve been in business as Nutmeg for 7 years! This post is over a week after “New Years” but it takes me a little time to get around to my blogging schedule after the holiday season is over. Oh well! That’s how life works.
