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. LOVE the mittens and the entire book sounds awesome. I’ve had to put myself in the “yarn time out corner” as my stash is getting out of control, but if I WIN some yarn, then that would be okay. 🙂

  2. Love the kitty mitts – BTW your blogpost from Wed drove my Rav Que to the stars – so much fun things to knit and truly so little time!

  3. pick me! please!
    I’m having SO much fun looking for a pattern for my just-scored-4 more skeins-of Take A Hike!

  4. That book looks so awesome! I love sock yarn and can’t seem to get enough – hoarding it like there is no tomorrow! I haven’t tried any of the loopy series though! I need to get some project ideas for sock yarn that aren’t socks – this book looks perfect for that!

  5. I have loads of sock yarn and would love this book –buying the yarn was easy, now figuring out what projects to make with all the yarn is the issue here. Love the mittens!!

  6. I’m a sucker for cats and when it comes to knitting –any pattern with cats on it finds it’s way into my faves. Cute so cute!!!

  7. I’ll need to check out that Pleiades shawl for TAPS! I think it would be a big hit in red, white, and blue!

    Thanks for the contest!

  8. I’ve been using sock yarn a lot lately, so would appreciate a book geared to using sock yarn for other knit treats rather than socks.
