Knitting patterns that are making my fingers twitch! #knitting
- 13 Pins
My mom and I have a deal. Every Christmas she gives me an IOU for a class I’d like to take, and in return, I share with her what I learn. Over the years I’ve taken quilting classes, Italian, calligraphy, weaving, machine knitting, the list goes on… What will this year’s class be you ask?!?! Indigo dyeing! I picture this class in a flower-filled garden or a breezy field (proof, I suppose, that I’ve grown very tired of winter). While I wait to find this perfect springtime class, my imagination fills with inky blues and seeping dyes, and so, I decided to translate the as-of-yet unknown art of indigo dyeing into something I do know… knitting. And since this polar winter is seemingly endless, it feels just right for right now! For my Arctic Wrap I used Purl Soho’s Worsted Twist merino in the color Heirloom White as a constant backdrop and Purl Soho’s Alpaca Pure for beautiful, shifting color. In a basic 1 stitch x 1 stitch Fair Isle pattern, the blooming halo of Alpaca Pure hovers over the smooth finish of Worsted Twist, highlighting the textural difference and softening the pixilated stitches into a gorgeous knit translation of a dip-dyed fabric. Working on this generously sized wrap has kept me cozy warm as I daydream about my indigo dyeing class, the sun on my cheeks, my fingers stained deep blue. Are any of you chronic class takers? What are you most curious about lately? Whatever it is, I hope it inspires you to create… maybe even this Arctic Wrap! -Laura PS: You can get all of the yarn you'll need for this wrap with Purl Soho's Yarn for Arctic Wrap kit!

What??? /// Giant Crochet /// Christien Meindertsma knitting felted wool yarn as part of the "Design for a Living World" project by the Nature Conservancy.
Artist Christien Meindertsma - big, chunky knits, and Christien brings this art form to another level. Using such large-scale pieces of yarn from an organic flock of sheep make the texture and patterns really tangible. Such beautiful work.
For Alex- A giant knitting project! Knit me a rug, honey :-)

Jared Flood's Terra. My most recent knitting project. So fun :)
In. Love. This is my next big project on my list of knitting to-do's! Don't you just want to crawl inside of that and get cozy? I love a piece that you can wrap around you like a scarf on the way out the door, then wrap around you like a shawl in a chilly restaurant or movie theatre. #knitting #shawl
