Here’s a little inspiration from Ravelry for some of the Valley Yarns on sale through the rest of May from our Anniversary Sale.

1. Huck Placemats by kadenza woven in Valley Yarns 3/2 Cotton – Any meal with these placemats would feel a little more special.

2. Greenaway pullover by swhill80 knit in Valley Yarns Deerfield – With the beading detail and the soft baby alpaca/silk yarn, this Amy Herzog pattern would be a lovely sweater to wear.

3. Log Cabin Towels by Sherie woven in Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton – I love woven log cabin.

4. Rose Path Scarf I by DebbiRYarn woven in Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel and Astro Dyeworks 8/2 Tencel – The Tencel in this scarf would feel wonderful and drape elegantly.

5. Milkweed sweater by u22grumpy knit in Valley Yarns Superwash – Only one word, STUNNING!

6. Berry Shawlette by untanglingmymind crocheted in Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel – Summer is the perfect time to wear a lightweight shawl and this would look great with a sundress or tank top.

7. Old Penny cardigan by Stitchywitch knit in Valley Yarns Williamstown – Even though Williamstown has the fun flecks of tweedy color, it still can showoff cables.

Valley Yarns on Ravelry Issue #1

Ravelry has been such a great resource for knitters and crocheters. I find that when I’m searching for information on a pattern or yarn, I’ll go to Ravelry before I Google it. I keep track of my stash, projects, and the patterns I dream about making some day. In addition to being a great resource and a place to organize all-things-yarn, I go to Ravelry for ideas and inspiration. It helps me answer the question, “I have this great yarn…now what?” Look up a yarn on Ravelry, and you’ll find hundreds, even thousands of projects other people have shared. It’s easy to lose track of time while jumping from one project page to the next, as your pattern queue grows and grows.

We’re starting a new feature on the blog this week where we’ll share some of  the great Ravelry projects that catch our eyes which use our Valley Yarns. Some are original designs, free patterns, Ravelry downloads…they come from many sources. But they’ll all be great examples of Ravelry users who have discovered our yarns and created something wonderful.

Here are some of the patterns that grabbed our attention this week.

1. Owls & Tigers & Zebras, Oh My! hats by Katy Wight knit in Valley Yarns Northampton Bulky.

2. ShanthiDragon’s Dark and Stormy by Thea Colman knit in Valley Yarns Northampton.

3. babknits’ Nereid Fingerless Gloves by Denise Sutherland knit in Valley Yarns Goshen.

4. Cecilia1’s Aase’s Shawl by Kristi Holaas knit in Valley Yarns Charlemont.

5. Sweetheart Socks by Nikol Lohr knit in Valley Yarns Northampton.

6. Zagzig sweater by Lori Puthoff knit in Valley Yarns Prescott.

7. Through the Years afghan by Betsy Coyne knit in Valley Yarns Northampton.

8. Zig-Zag Afghan/Throw by Dawn Seymour knit in Valley Yarns Southwick.

Hope this inspires you to pick up your needles or hook this week and create something wonderful too.
