Garnet Hill Kids!
I spent some time this weekend updating our yarns and projects on our Ravelry page...long overdue! I love seeing what everyone is making out of the yarn, it's so inspiring and encouraging! Please look us up on Ravelry and friend us, tag us and heart us in all your Knit Collage projects! Our user name is knitcollage. While tinkering away on there, I came across the most unique knitting project I have ever seen knit out of our yarns, a camel harness knit using Mermaid Cafe yarn! It was specially knit for a Garnet Hill Kids photoshoot and is up on their homepage now- check it out on their site: www.garnethill.com/kids-clothing and in the pics below!
Cozy Headband in Shooting Star
We're all snowed in here in Pennsylvania, giving me the perfect excuse to curl up and knit. I did just that last night and came up with a cute knit headband in one of our new yarns, shooting star. The headband is super warm and would work in any of our handspun yarns. I knit the ties in garter stitch out of some of our sister yarn (coming soon!) plus neons and silver yarns from my stash. I increased at the end of the ties and then began knitting in stockinette stitch for the headband. Take a peek below at the finished product! I knit this without a pattern, just freely. If you're interested in the pattern, drop me a line at email@example.com
On another note, a giant shipment of yarn (1000 skeins!) leaves for us in PA on Monday from India. Yippee, yarn stores should have yarn very soon!
Simple Pixie Dust Scarf in Snowflake
Things have been super crazy here at Knit Collage HQ ever since we returned home from the TNNA. Sadly, we haven't had any crafty time because of an abundance of not so fun admin work! This includes daily skype calls to our India spinners, working on giant excel charts to plan out all of our yarn deliveries and the time-consuming work of setting up a business in the US. Despite it all, slowly but surely, we're growing and moving forward step by step.
Since we've be strapped for time, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show off the most amazing scarf my Aunt Jessie whipped up for my little sister this Christmas. She used 2 skeins of Snowflake Pixie Dust yarn, cast on 6 stitches and knit in stockinette stitch for the whole scarf. It is totally luscious, soft and perfect for staying warm and cozy in the weather we're feeling right now! I love how the simple stitch shows off the slubbiness of the yarn and all the yummy sparkles. It was also a huge hit with yarn store buyers at the last TNNA, I really don't want my sister to take it up to college with her next week!! Take a peek at the pics below and you'll see why...
