Knitting The Card Game

Knitter Lacey Ziemkiewicz has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a passion project that helps knitters finish a project in a whole new way. Knitting the Card Game is a multi-player card game in which players strategically gather cards – adorned with pictures of real-life patterns and real-life yarn – to “complete” knitting projects. It took the crowdsourcing campaign less than a day to be fully funded, but you can still back the project through March 10 and be among the first to receive the game, which is estimated to ship in July.



From Stephen West and Malia Mae Joseph, the duo behind LYS Stephen & Penelope, comes West Wool, a brand new line of yarn, which makes its debut on Friday, February 15th. Operating under the mantra that “texture is the new speckle,” the inaugural line will feature two bases – the 2-ply Bicycle and the 3-ply Tandem – that are made of non-superwash Falkland fibers and dyed with modern colors. The yarn will initially be available at starting on the 15th, but will also make an appearance at Edinburgh Yarn Festival March 21-23 and Woollinn festival June 14-15.



Whether you’re a new subscriber of the KonMari method and looking to tidy up or just excited to cast on for the growing list of Spring must-knits, there’s no time like the present to finish your WIPs. Thankfully, Ewe Ewe yarns has declared this month Finish It February and is hosting a Bind Off Party KAL. Through the end of February, finish your WIPs and share your success on Instagram with the #EweEweBindOffParty tag. There will be prizes raffled each week for those who have finished a project. Excuse us while we get to knitting.


CAST ON: Dark Cloud by Joji Locatelli

If you need a morale-boosting, quick knit, then Dark Cloud is for you. From the needles of Joji Locatelli, Dark Cloud is a bulky weight sweater that features uniform texture (hello, Garter Stitch!), a boxy silhouette, and dramatic slits on either side of the sweater. The sweater is written from the top down with a crewneck and dropped sleeves. It is written for 5 sizes so everyone can cast on this super comfy, yet refined, everyday sweater.
