Celebrate With Isabell Kramer

Isabell Kraemer is throwing a birthday party KAL for her Ravelry group and you’re invited. Pick any of the designer’s patterns and cast on to celebrate 5 years and the 10,000+ members of her Ravelry group. The party starts on February 18th and doesn’t end until April 29th, which gives you plenty of time to knit one of her new wraps – like the Euclid or Plein Soilel – or a classic favorite like her Humulus sweater.


A Well Minded Podcast Coming Soon

A new knitting podcast about mental health and how fiber relates is set to be released and you’re invited to be a part of it. Christy, the indie dyer behind Yarn Cafe Creations and one-half of the Girls In The Yarn Cafe podcast, is also a licensed marriage and family therapist. She’ll be combining her talents to create the unnamed podcast project, but first needs your help. If you want to discuss fiber and mental health, email Christy at yarncafecreations@gmail.com  to tell her your story.


Curious Handmade Sock Society 2

Helen Stewart’s second installment of the Handmade Sock Society kicks off on February 14th with its first sock pattern release. Season 2 of the sock pattern club takes inspiration from the breathtaking Cornish coastline and its seaside retreats. Let the club’s six sock patterns become monthly armchair retreats and impress you to take some time for yourself, your thoughts, and, of course, handknits. Sign up before February 14th to take advantage of early bird pricing.


CAST ON: The Cowl

Having made its debut – and gained instant popularity! – as a booth sample at Vogue Knitting Live, The Cowl from Plucky Knitter has been written up into a free pattern now available on Ravelry. With one strand of worsted weight yarn and two strands of fingering weight yarn held together and using larger needles (you’ll need a 9, 10, and 10.5), work an all over 3×2 rib to create this oversized, cozy neckwarmer that will turn heads. The brilliance is in the shaping that comes with the strategic needle changes, but we argue that there’s so much more to love about this cowl that we officially want to knit in bright, happy colors for all of our friends.
