The Scoop: January 2, 2019

Daughter In The House

Start off the New Year with new color inspiration. Yarn On The House has addedd 4 new modern neutrals to their Daughter collection. The Worsted Weight yarn, which comes in 330-yard skeins, was previously available in traditional neutrals Vanilla, Chocolate, Black Truffle, and Oatmeal (and look exactly what you think they look like). Now Wild Rice, Rosemary, Cider, and Pomegranate – a cool grey, a cool light blue, a yellow-hued medium brown, and a rich maroon respectively – are available for purchase. Add a skein to your stash for a rainy day, or perhaps mix and match to knit this awesome loop from Espace Tricot.

Cast On: Rye Lite Socks

With 6,000+ logged projects on Ravelry, Tin Can Knits worsted-weight Rye sock has been a beginner’s go-to. The pattern, which allows knitters to learn the construction of a sock in a speedy way (because worsted weight!), now has a fingering weight version. Rye Light, which was released yesterday, offers the same construction and look as its heavier weight counterpart, but is know sized for traditional sock weight yarn. Like with so many of the Tin Can Knits patterns, Rye Light is free, so you can kick off (get it?!) your New Year Sockolutions (working title) ASAP. If you’re new to knitting, make sure to check out the pattern page on the Tin Can Knits’ site for construction schematic, tutorials, and more.
