Coned yarns aren’t just for weavers! Yarn presented on cones tends to be finer in gauge and comes with a ton of yardage which makes it great for crochet projects.  Interweave Crochet Accessories 2014 issue is out and features 3 designs using Valley Yarns that are available on cones.

The Network Shawl is made using our 8/2 Tencel in the Greyed Mauve colorway.

The Chevron Wrap uses our Valley Yarns 8/2 Unmercerized Cotton in 5 colors:   shale,  peaches ‘n cream,  greyed lavender,  willow green, and heather.

The Tinker’s Tool Belt uses our Valley Yarns 3/2 Cotton in 3 colors:  madder brown,  sponge, and amber gold.

Which projects are you excited about getting your hooks into?

This week we’re excited about the color play in the newest book of patterns from Martin Storey, Scottish Knits.

Scottish Knits by Martin Storey

In Scottish Knits, Martin Storey pays homage to beautiful Celtic cables and colorwork with 17 stunning and innovative handknits accessible to knitters of all skill levels. The projects include garments, accessories and home goods, many of which feature different color patterns or textures within a single piece.

2 colorful cardigans from Scottish Knits

Scotland has a rich tradition in handknitting thanks to the exquisite hand-dyed yarns that have been spun in the Scottish islands for centuries. Traditional techniques have been handed down through generations, resulting in a treasure trove of stitch patterns, textures, and colors. What happens when beautifully crafted handknits meet a Scottish sense of color and whimsy? You get an exquisite book of Scottish-influenced designs that knitters will crave.

Leave a comment below and tell us what colors of Rowan Fine Tweed you’d use for either cardigan above and you could win a copy of Scottish Knits! All comments must be posted by 11:59pm EST on Tuesday, Oct. 8. Please make sure to leave us a way to contact you if you win! The winner will be drawn randomly and posted here the following day.

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?
