Sweater Queen Caitlin Hunter of Boyland Knitworks is hosting a Swatch and Steek Cutting KAL to guide us through one of the most intimidating knitting skills. Starting October 1st, join other knitters the Boyland Knitworks Ravelry Group to start knitting a swatch in the round. Knit a swatch of your choice or use the teaser swatch sample from Caitlin’s upcoming Ramblin’ Woman sweater. Either way, the cutting starts on October 10th in the company of other knitters, making the act a little less intimidating.

Yarn darlings Camellia Fiber Company has won us over with their limited edition, seasonal colorways, but we’re always sad to see them go. Gone are those days! New to the Camellia Fiber Company family is their new Signature Colorway Collection – five colors inspired by nature’s most beautiful blooms. Camellia, Thistle, Chicory, Dahlia, and Moonflower make the up the beautiful neutral palate, which just begs to be cast on this season and next. And the one after that.

A NEW WAY TO MAKE THINGS

There’s a new way to make things thanks to the forthcoming Making Things app. The app, which will be available for iOS and Android, features a robust list of offerings to make your knitting more streamlined and efficient while plugging you into quality patterns and trends. Within the subscription-based app (it’ll be $11.99/month), you will be able to search the library of tested and edited patterns, store your patterns, write notes and mark your place in a pattern you’re working on, watch tutorial videos, and have yarny chat in the built-in forum section. We’re excited to discover its potential, though some industry insiders, like Olive Knits, have already played around with it and are singing its praises.

It’s hard to wait for the sequel – book, movie, or otherwise – which is why we don’t hate Andrea Mowry’s overabundance of new patterns. Just as we’re about to bind off our Wool & Honey Sweater, we’re presented with a new project to cast on: Nurtured. This new, cropped sweater uses a hefty aran weight yarn to add texture and warmth. Throw on over a dress or pair with a skirt for a trendy winter look.
