Last month, we celebrated March and Mars and all things M with yarn, fabric, patterns or designers beginning with M. I am making a Match and Move – only 2 1/2 stripes left – for my March Mixer. I decided to save it to finish at The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling, because it’s a great no-brainer knit.
For April, the Monthly Mixer challenge is to knit or sew something by your favorite designer. Now I know a lot of you have several favorite designers, but pick the one that is your go-to person when you are in the mood to knit something new and want to see if he/she has a new pattern ready for you. I do have a lot of favorites, but for the April Mixer I’m going to do another Martina Behm pattern. I think I have used her patterns the most in all of my projects. I love multi-colored skeins of yarn, and Martina just has a lot of great (and simple) options for those.
Why participate in the Monthly Mixer? It’s a
great excuse perfectly good reason to buy new yarn. And who doesn’t want to do that?? Pop over to the Loopy Groupie thread on Ravelry and talk to us about your April Mixer Ideas!
