Digital Findley Dappled Patterns

Exciting news! The first Findley Dappled book from Juniper Moon Farm is sold out. Rather than reprint the book, we decided to convert the patterns into individual PDFs. Having a book with an overall theme is fun, but if there… Continue Reading →

Spotlight: Lace Weight yarns

With warmer weather on the horizon it’s time to start thinking about how we’ll continue to knit and crochet without becoming overheated. Sure, during the winter working on a blanket or a sweater is nice because the fabric in your… Continue Reading →

A Sweater Divided

The Olympic Games ended last night. For knitters and crocheters active on Ravelry it also meant the conclusion of the Ravellenic Games.

With millions of yarn lovers allover the world I know that whenever I’m casting on or completing a project it is very likely that at least one person (if not more) is at the same point as me. Sort of like knowing people share your birthday even if you haven’t met them.

On The Needles: Three Lace Cardigan

The “Three Lace Cardigan” is from the Juniper Moon Farm Findley book.

I fell in love with the Three Lace Cardigan as soon as I saw it, but haven’t gotten around to knitting it until now. You know how that goes, too many current projects on the go, gifts to be made, etc.

To break the cycle I declared the TLC my Ravellenic Games project. That would give me an excuse to toss all other projects aside and just focus on the cardigan.

Lace Collars

We don’t like to put away our knitting needles and crochet hooks just because warmer weather has arrived.

But who wants to have an afghan on their lap in 80 or 90 degree weather?

Several of the spring/summer pattern books have little lace collars that will be great projects for this time of year. They are small, portable, and often take just one skein of the required yarn.

Spotlight: Louisa Harding Nerissa

Did you enjoy Louisa’s discussion of her new fall yarns and pattern books?

It is so fun to get a peak inside the designers’ creative process and see what inspires them.

The three new yarns–Grace Hand Beaded, Simonetta, and Nerissa–are all lovely, but I had to stick my needles in Nerissa first. It’s been a while since I worked with chenille and I wanted to see what Louisa had come up with.

Since the free pattern for the Cosimo scarf works with all three new yarns, I thought I’d give it a whirl.
