The 2013 issue of Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts is out and we couldn’t be happier. Our own Valley Yarns are featured in two projects!

First up are the Sailor’s Mittens designed by Michele Moskaluk, and knit in Valley Yarns Huntington. Worked from the cuffs up with increases to form the thumb gussets, these women’s mittens boast lively three color patterns on the palms and backs of the hands.

Second is the Southern Cross Afghan designed by Ann McDonald Kelly and knit in Valley Yarns Valley Superwash. This afghan is made of mitered triangles made into squares. The squares are then sewn together with borders, making an interesting and cozy blanket.

Which projects are you excited to make as gifts this year?

The new Interweave Knits  Fall 2013 issue  features a great pattern using yarn from our friends at Be Sweet.

The No. 6 Shrug, designed by Maria Leigh, is knit using the new Skinny Wool.

Worked from each sleeve cuff toward the center back, this shrug has a great lacy detail at the cuffs and around the collar.

Which color of Skinny Wool would you use?

Tahki Stacey Charles yarns featured in Interweave Knits

Interweave Knits has released it’s Fall 2013 issue and it features two great patterns using yarns from our friends at Tahki Stacey Charles.

First up is the Crinoline Tee designed by Andrea Babb and knit in TSCArtyarns Tranquility. TSCArtyarns is a collaborative effort using yarns from TSC dyed in gorgeous colors by Iris Schreier of Artyarns. We’re loving the subtle, tonal stripes that happen with this yarn and the gentle ruching detail at the shoulders.

Second we have the Mistral Stole designed by Susanna IC and knit in Filatura Di Crosa Nirvana.  The modern yet organic stitch pattern is worked outward from the center for symmetrical edges. And if you haven’t yet tried Nirvana, you are missing out on an incredible, washable, lace-weight merino yarn!

What projects are you looking forward to making from this issue?
