So, we’ve reached the end of our KAL! I hope that you’ve all had fun! We've given out over $500 in prizes to some lucky winners in our event (with 3 more to be awarded today as well!), and seen loads of really beautiful pictures of Rie’s pattern from all over this wide world. One of my FAVORITE things about knitting
So, how’s it going everyone?! Did you get through the stockinette body section? I have to admit…I’m not finished with it yet myself! OMG! Life got busy, as it does sometimes, so I wasn’t able to knit as much as I hope to. However, I’m only 2 cm away, so I’m hoping to finish it today and jump on into our next section. I’m gonna work my fingers off this weekend to catch up. Like I’ve said before, the goals I’ve been setting for the KAL are loose goals, but it’s ok to go as slowly as you need to.
Hello all! How’s your sweater coming along? I’ve moved on from joining the front and back hems and am about 4-5cm away from being done with my stockinette section. I often find that when I get to a large section of stockinette, my knitting pace slows down quite a bit when it’s being worked in the round.
This month we have 3 exciting trunk shows planned!!! The first one happened just this past weekend in Portland at the Starlight Knitting Society! They’ve just expanded their shop and it looks beautiful! This weekend, our yarn will be at Downtown Knits, in North Carolina, and then next weekend we’ll be here at the Haus of Yarn in Nashville again!
I am so excited for this event to get rolling here, especially during October! Knitting season is full on here in the Northern Hemisphere, and our queues are getting full.
Rie Vive, a designer from Kochi, Japan, has created a timeless, cozy, fun knit out of our Retreat base here at Nutmeg Fibers. I was so honored that she was interested in working with our yarn when I reached out to her, and the pattern she came up with is something that you’ll want to wear this year or ten years from now.
I can hear the heat bubbling up in my radiator, that cozy sound that always reminds me that fall is nearly here! It’s a little extra cool here today, about 57F/11C, and I’m so happy to be sipping on my warm tea and writing about yarn! TBH, I only pulled out the heater for that extra cozy feeling today, since I was writing a bunch!
I got home from Vogue Knit Live: San Francisco Monday afternoon, and after a few days of jet lag, have enough brain space to write about it! Last weekend was the perfect time to go visit San Francisco.
