I LOVE this book!!
I also love Anne but I swear that does not play into how I feel about this book and what Anne has done to Intarsia knitting! I’ll never forget the first time Anne showed me her Intarsia magic. We were sitting on the stairs at Madrona and she whipped out her knitting and excitedly explained in great detail what she was doing. My mind was blown! Once I wrapped my head around it that is. I had felt this way once before when Cat showed me her first new sock construction. Mind bent so far from norm and then blown!
If you love color work of any kind Anne’s book is a must. Even if you don’t Annetarsia might be just what you were waiting for to make the color work leap.
Annetarsia is a well thought out and implemented book chocked full of information that is well charted and explained. I was thinking we should do a Blue Moon knit-a-long but then I would have to pick just one of the fun designs Anne has come up with. Maybe we should do a knit-a-long where we just pick one they do not have to be all the same project and knit! What do you think? You game. If you are email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a discount code and start a group KAL section section here on the blog!!
Thank you Anne for what is sure to many fun knit hours to come!!
What you see in the basket on our homepage is a just a few of the new colorways I’ve come up with for the end of summer, the quickly approaching fall season and lastly, new holiday hues. I have spent the past two months pouring my heart and soul into dye and then onto yarn and having a grand ol’ time doing so.
I have a few new dye techniques I’ve come up with along with a series or two or three…brewing. I know…I’ve been hinting at a new series for awhile now. I don’t mean to be color coy I just want it to be exactly how I envision it in my head, to be as it is on the yarn. One of these series I am so excited about I can barely stand it. It is the SCUM series. Yup, Pond Scum’s family has moved into town and there are one rowdy scumtastic bunch, just as you imagine they would be. They will be making their debut around the 2nd week of August. So stay tuned!
Coming next week is the first 4 colorways in my Grimm series. I am thoroughly obsessed with Grimm. I came a little late to the party ( as usual) . Which means I got to watch the first two seasons at a reckless, only slightly obsessive, pace. Grimm is set in Portland which added even more depth to it and a whole lot of charm. If you are also a Grimm fan let me know what you think. I think I hit the mark on this one. Also what Grimm type colorways would you like to see?
I’m considering watching it again in the next two weeks as I recover from my mastectomy. I have to watch it again now for research, right?
Yes, it is that time. I go in today for my bilateral. I feel like I am in as good a place as you can be with something like this and am ready to move on to whatever is next. It’s been a whirlwind here getting ready for me to be out of the dye loop for two weeks or more but we are there!
I want to say a really big Thank you! for all of the love and support. My heart has been overflowing with gratitude for it all. My surgery is at 4:00 tomorrow so if you have your knitting and can knit a stitch or two in my direction I would love it! xoxo
Here’s the first Grimm color way. Whatcha think?
