I’m getting ready to design a hat, and I spent some quality time winding my yarn today. It got me thinking how much a dyer’s surroundings must influence the yarn they make. This is @dreamincoloryarn in their City base. Be sure to swipe to see all the pictures. The colorway is called Cloud & Ground. I see the cloud, but not so much the ground. Then I remembered that Dream In Color is in Tucson, AZ. It all made sense. I went to AZ last summer, and this red/orange/yellow is exactly what the ground looks like. Here in central NC, I’d be looking for greens and browns. This yarn is very soft and squishy. I’m really looking forward to turning it into a hat. Thanks to Dream In Color for sending me a sample to play with! . #ad #DreamInColorYarn #knitting #knittersofinstagram

Shut the front door! This yarn from #OneTwistedTree (aka @prairiegirldanie) is just what I’ve wanted my entire life. It’s in her “Take the Black” colorway. Danie has heard me talk about how knitting black toes, heels, and cuffs is why I wear reading glasses now and offered to send me a hank if this yarn to try. As she puts it, “it is a mix of black and charcoal that gives enough variation in the fabric to make the black bearable.” Nailed it! I can see my stitches clearly, and yet the overall effect is still a bold black. I swear if I look at it sideways I see hints of purple, but Danie assures me that’s just how black dyes up. It’s amazing. I’m pretty sure I want this for all my sock contrast bits now. Thank you, Danie! ❤️ . . #knitting #knittersofinstagram #socks #taketheblack

Friends, I just released a new hat pattern — Thundertwist! Until September 30, the pattern is $1 off — no coupon code needed. See the link in my IG profile to get the pattern from Ravelry. Be sure to mark the pattern as a favorite on Ravelry, too! ⠀ Like thunderbolts flashing from the sky, slender cables zig-zag down from the crown of this hat — but they have a twist! Not only do you knit these thunderbolts from the bottom up, but their stitch definition is as sharp as a lightning flash thanks to the use of twisted stitches. Worked in worsted-weight yarn, this fast and fun-to-knit hat is a great introduction to Bavarian twisted stitches and would be a perfect use for handspun yarns.⠀ ⠀ I knit my sample in @barrettwoolco Wisconsin Woolen Spun Worsted Weight, which is so soft and squishy to work with and really highlights the definition in the twisted stitches. What do you have in your stash that wants to turn into a snuggly hat for this winter? It's time to dig it out and get knitting!⠀ ⠀ #ThundertwistHat #knitting #knittersofinstagram #hats #designing #designersofinstagram

The July 2017 #SockCrate from #KNITCRATE pops! First up is the Merino/Nylon/Stellina yarn in the "Firefly Riot" from @lavenderluneyarn Samantha Furst. (I can't decide if I'm going to make socks with it, or turn it into a shawlette.) This month's pattern is #CelticClimbers by @paperdaisycreations Lisa K. Ross — they may look challenging, but a predictable lace repeat creates a lovely dramatic effect without too much effort. This month's extra comes from @johavi_woodworking Stephanie Murray, and is a bag of cute laser-engraved wood tags that say "Handmade."⠀ ⠀ If you want a box like this to show up on your doorstep every month, the @knitcrate subscription service is what you're looking for. Use the affiliate link in my IG profile for all your KNITCRATE needs, and use the KD20 coupon code at checkout to receive 20% off the first month of an ongoing subscription. Everyone wins!⠀ ⠀ #UnravelYourKnitcrate
