Happy Universal Palindrome Day!!!

IMG_6905

This year is just so full of all kinds of wonder which is great because we kind of need it! There has not been one of these since 11.11.1111 which was 900 years ago. And there will not be another for 101 years in 12.12.2121 and then again until 03.03.3030.

Why do I feel that it is so magical?  Well… happenings and experiences tend to be special in their rarity. And don’t you think it’s those things that we do not experience all the time that inspire us to notice and then hopefully appreciate the wonder of the world we live in. It’s that ability to see and feel these magic moments that give us the energy to not just get through our days, but to be fueled to create and change our world.

Anyway…we are celebrating this day!! I can’t believe we are celebrating our 20th year this year of all years.

Speaking of magic have you seen some of the sweater designs being published?! Oh my there is most definitely not enough knitting hours in the day.

Okay let’s start with this beauty!

Water Bearer by Jacqueline Cieslak

So pretty! That brioche front panel and collar are just lovely and then the contrast between it and the stockinette is just poetic! I think this will look good on all of us! She had this cropped version and a longer one. I do love choices!! It’s knit in a DK weight ~ seems like everything is right now. So CAKE DK or Silky Victoria or La Luna DK or Crackpaca all would work for this lovely!  (photo credit JacquelineCieslak)

And then there’s…..

Joji Locatelli and her Pebble Tunic

I am a sucker for a tunic! Add pockets and I am a goner. Tunics are just so cozy and I am big on my clothing being cozy! Pebble also uses a DK weight yarn. The gauge on this is pretty open so be aware of the fiber content on the yarn you choose so you don’t get a tunic that grows! We are recommending our CAKE DK. (photo credit Joji Locatelli)

Since we  are on a DK roll …. Rose by Andrea Yetman    A lovely pullover with seriously nice lines and look at those sleeves!! Perfect for our more neutral shaded solids. Also I think I would choose our La Lune DK for this one. (photo credit Andrea Yetman)

Bergamo by Lisa Richardson

And here we step outside of our DK and knit creative box with this super cool ( I’m in love) crocheted cardigan in fingering weight yarn!!! Just about any of our fingering weight yarns would work here but I think I would choose La Luna again.I think the silk component would make this super dreamy!  (photo credit 2020 MEZ Crafts UK, Ltd.)

Well my friends that is quite a lot of creative fodder!!
