But first, if you’re headed to Sarnia, Ontario make a plan to stop at Zen Yarn Garden’s first store location!

Meet Lucky Tweed

From Kelbourne Woolens, just in time for cozy knitting weather, Lucky Tweed is a classic authentic Donegal Tweed yarn. The aran weight yarn is made in Donegal, Ireland and is available in a palette of 13 rich colors. Fun tweed speckles cover this 100% merino wool fiber giving finished projects a natural texture and classic vibe. The new yarn, which is now available in yarn shops and online, is joined with a nine-piece knitwear collection, the Lucky Tweed Collection.

VKL Destination Miami

Enjoy the last bits of warm summer weather with Stephen West at Vogue Knitting Live Destinations in Miami. From October 24 – 27. He’ll be joined by Ana Hentze and Marceline Smith for long weekend of workshops with the three designs. Study shawls with Stephen West, dye indigo project bags with Ana Hentze, and learn the basics of spinning yarn from Marceline Smith. Also, explore Miami and shop yarn from on-site vendors Knitting Garden and Sheep Thrills. Knit One Crochet Too and Urth Yarns will also be set up with trunk shows.

The September Collection

Making Stories has released their September Collection, a six pattern collection to help ease the transition between hot-to-cool, or if you’re in the Southern hemisphere, cold-to-warm. With lightweight sweaters and cardigans, the cutest pair of cuffed socks, and a shawl that is the perfect grab and wrap accessory, the pieces in this collection are ones that you’ll reach for in September and beyond.
