But first, keep knitting those blue hats! The Hat Not Hate September 1st deadline is almost here!

New Finch Colorways

The team at Quince & Co has released three new colorways of Finch, their 100% fingering weight wool. The Fall-inspired colorways, aptly named Rook, Parchment, and Hunter (just look at them!), feature the company’s signature softened color and understated confidence. Each color can be harmoniously paired with another color in the Finch family or is bold enough to demand attention on its own in a one-color project. The new colors are available now.

Open Farm Day Makers Market

Head to Wing & A Prayer Farm for an open farm day on Saturday, August 31. From 10:00 am – 1:00 pm the Vermont farm will host an afternoon of fiber fun, including natural dye demos, fiber animals to meet, and a Makers Market hosted by Taproot magazine. Shop for yarn, patterns, notions, and more during this unique fiber experience.

Pre-Order Cosy Knits

Designer Carol Feller’s new book, Cosy, is now available for pre-order. The collection of essays and patterns from nine UK-based designers explores coziness through personal experience, knitting, and the author’s Nua Worsted Yarn. Find patterns using this merino, yak, and linen fiber blend from these designers, including Bristol Ivy, Rachel Coopey, Louise Tilbrook, and even the author herself, that range in difficulty and skill to help you level up your coziest knitting game. The hard copy book will be released in October.
