One of my favourite things about knitting and designing shawls is dreaming up color palettes! From neutrals to brights - it's always so interesting to see what color combos you all use. Add in gradients and speckles and you've got a great way to show off your personality in your knitting. My newest pattern - ATMEN, is fabulous for doing exactly that and for using leftovers, showing off custom palettes and for mixing up colors and having some fun!
I recently was lucky enough to get back to visit one of my fave yarn shops - Churchmouse Yarns & Teas in Bainbridge Island, WA. Whenever I get to Churchmouse I dive into the yarns and have some serious fun pulling color combos for shawls. This visit we put together some yummy palettes for my newest design - ATMEN. You can find these color palettes all for sale HERE on the Churchmouse website. You can also purchase lovely printed pattern booklets of ATMEN both online and in their shop as well.
We're so excited to announce that we'll be coming to visit some of our favourite yarn shops - Churchmouse Yarns & Teas and Tolt Yarn & Wool with our newest book and trunk show!
We love getting a chance to visit both of these inspiring and gorgeous shops and getting to see all of you! We'll be bringing the trunk show for our newest book - Within: Knitting Patterns to Warm the Soul so you can see the pieces from the book in person and even try them on! Read More
