Jeannie Duncan from Fiesta Yarns
Jeannie shares with us what they have coming up for Fall. A new yarn called Flurry will be introduced. It is a silk, wool and mohair blend that knits on a size 10 needle. Melissa Leapman designed two sweaters for this yarn.
Also coming in the near future is Pirouette, a boucle yarn.
Jeannie shares with us a little peak into the process of developing yarns.
In September, Fiesta purchased Ironstone Yarns. It is a very different brand from the Fiesta brand, but Jeannie and Brad are very excited about sharing this brand with all of the knitters out there.
Knitalong with Pixie – Intarsia
Pixie has a butterfly for each color of yarn.
How much yarn should you wind for each section – Pixie is haphazard about this. There are particular ways to do this. If you have large blocks of color that are repeated, count the number of block. Cast on 10 stitches and knit one row. Cut the yarn, pull the stitches off the needle, undo the yarn and measure the length. Each 10 stitches will equal very close to this measurement.
Butterfly: Wind yarn around middle and index finger – leaving tail hanging loose. When you have enough yarn, cut the yarn leaving a 12 inch tail. Wrap around center of butterfly and tuck under the wraps.
