Patterns in the News!

It’s always fun to see our Loopy Ewe Solid Series in print, and we have two more to share with you. In the newest Interweave Crochet Accessories magazine that just came out, our yarn was featured in the Pleiades Shawl, a fun star-inspired shawl that drapes around your shoulders. This one was done in Eggplant, Barn Red and Smoke. (Photos by Harper Point Photography.)

I received a copy of Carol Sulcoski’s new Sock Yarn Studio book in the mail, and it’s a must-have. So many great designs from some of your favorite top designers, including Wendy Johnson, Veronik Avery, Franklin Habit, Hunter Hammersen, and more. It starts out with great sock-knitting information from Carol (avoiding pooling, repeats with self-patterning and multicolor yarn, using sock patterns for other projects, etc.). Then you get to the gorgeous patterns. You’ll find cowls, gloves, scarves, hats, shawls, sweaters, an adorable baby cardigan, and more. Of course my favorite pattern in the book is the one that Wendy designed with our Solid Series, called Kitteh Mittens. She used 1 skein each of Coffee and Cerulean.

Would you like to make a pair? Leave a comment below and we’ll use the random number generator to pick someone to win the book and your choice of 2 skeins of The Loopy Ewe Solid Series. (Hey – wouldn’t those mittens be cute in orange and black for Halloween trick-or-treating? Next year.)

We also have a winner from last week’s Halloween day blog contest. Congratulations to Linda in Illinois, whose favorite go-to food or drink on cold days is hot mulled apple cider. Yum!

Speaking of our Loopy Ewe Solid Series, the winder has been going nonstop today, working on more Loopy Cake sets for you. (More Steampunk, but also more in the series. I told you we were having too much fun coming up with themes!)

  1. Very nice! I have a pair of stranded mitts queued using the Solid Series, and I can’t wait to see how they look.

  2. I love Loopy Ewe Solids! So many colors to choose from, and perfect for colorwork! Thanks for the chance to win some πŸ™‚

  3. Carol’s work is enabling. Might just have to buy more yarn because I don’t have THE right one in my stash. ;-]

  4. We only need mittens about 2 months of the year, but DD is considering several Midwestern colleges for next year and needs these mitts!

  5. Ohh, it would be so fun to win the beautiful yarn and book!! This technique is one I have been wanting to learn. Thanks!

  6. those kitten mittens are so meow!. I’m sure my two felines, Sophie Bear and Mr. Mo would love to watch me knit a pair for myself. They are good! They ignore the yarns but love to manage to get their paws around the knitting needles and pull them from the work in progress.

  7. I just completed a colorworked baby bonnet for my second grandson due next March. I’d like to do another color work project. Practice makes perfect! Thanks for the contest!

  8. Loopy Solids and an awesome book featuring the cutest kitty mittens? What an excellent combo! Thanks for the chance to win such neat stuff.

  9. oo those look so pretty… I’ve been wanting to try some more colorwork projects!

    thanks for having such a fun giveaway!

  10. I’d make them for my friend Lyn who just lost her beloved Brionny kitty cat — B. was 17 and much loved.

  11. The Kitteh Mittens are adorable. What granddaughter or daughter wouldn’t love them? – especially hand knitted by Gramma of course!
