by Stephannie Tallent When I was planning The Wild West: Stranded, I wanted to show variety in not just the designs but the yarns. I chose to work with two yarn companies, Elemental Affects...
ecause this very deep, rich colorway was dyed on SW wool, it retained sections of white throughout, so I decided that I wanted to spin a 3-ply yarn to minimize high-contrast barberpoling and help the sections that were much lighter than the dyed sections blend the colors together more evenly. […]
We’ve just posted the information for our next club, shipping in late March!
The project base for this club is a set of matching gloves and a cowl, knit in a stranded fair isle pattern making them both squishy and extra-warm to block those winter winds.
Both fibres were spun to create a semi-worsted sport-weight yarn. […]
This yarn has been sitting in my stash for quite a while, now, waiting for the right project. I am thrilled to finally have it knit up looking pretty. You may or may not recognize it from our header graphic here on Ennea Collective. […]
This simple 2-color shawlette features easy lace bands with a deeper lace border, inspired by the cracking ice fissures and crevasses in icebergs. The shawl is a slightly elongated semi-circular shape, which is easy to wear and knits up quickly with fingering-weight yarn. […]
Laburnum blossoms lining a pathway are the inspiration for this scarf, named after the Mumbai lane known for the laburnum trees that line it. Laburnum Road is also known for Mani Bhavan, the Mumbai residence of Gandhi, and amongst the memorabilia housed there is a spinning wheel once used by the Mahatma. […]
This easy bottom-up triangular-shaped shawl was inspired by the small posies bouquets sold by Eliza Doolittle in “My Fair Lady”. […]
This casual but feminine lace cardigan is the perfect little extra layer over a T-shirt or a sundress for late summer evenings or in overly chilly AC. […]
I love a lightweight cardigan for the summertime. With that in mind, I purchased two matching braids of a merino/bamboo blend (50/50) from Funky Carolina in a pretty summery colorway, “Waterlilies”. […]
A pre-issue Spin-Along! Pre-order the roving from Pigeonroof Studios. Have your yarn ready to knit a beautiful shawl from our July Issue.
I normally find myself spinning sportweight or lighter yarns, and I wanted to challenge myself to spin a worsted to Aran weight yarn that would be warm and windproof for late-winter wear. […]
