Knitscene Winter 2014 is looking pretty good if you ask me. Let's take a look.
Emma Welford is the featured designer in this issue, and she has created some lovely things for us. The Haubergeon Sweater is a classic. Knit up in a worsted weight, too, so it will be done in a flash.
Oh, the leg warmers. The Ornate Greaves are kind of epic, aren't they? We have a few skeins of Vivacious Handpaint DK from Fyberspates left on the shelves, or you could go solid with Plymouth DK Merino Superwash.
The Gothic Gloves would be amazing in Rowan Fine Tweed, and we have so many colors in stock.
The Mixed Media section is all about the marled yarns. Which I am loving. (Remember this sweater? I wear it all the time.) The Purbeck Pullover looks cozy, and it's done up in Cascade Eco Duo, a very popular yarn at the shop.
The Tongshan Sweater is absolutely on my list for this winter. Sally just ordered a whole bunch of the Classic Elite Crestone, too, so we will have our choice of lovely marled shades. Love the shirttail hem and the contrasting yoke. Love it.
The Carrara Shawl is worked up with a whole bunch of Shibui Cima held doubled. If you haven't worked with this yarn yet, do yourself a favor and give it a try. It's like butter.
These Siena Mittens are stinkin' adorable. They use doubled-up sock yarn in a range of shades to get the cool stripe effect.
I also love this. So much. The Kolmarden Jacket is designed using two strands of Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift. We have lots in stock for you. I love the shape and the fabric so much, but choosing colors is going to be a bear.
There is an interesting section on mosaic knitting. If that's your thing, take a look a the Tessellating Leaves scarf, knit up in Plymouth Homestead. We have a nice deep stock of this lovely yarn, too.
There are some nice classics with interesting details, too. The Hanne Sweater has a nice garter stitch section on the side.
I like the Orla Keily vibe of the Isla Cardigan and the Lisa Hat and Armwarmers. The sweater is knit up in Rowan Pure Wool Worsted, and I would use Cascade 220 Sport or Superwash Sport for the colorful accessories.
The stripes and colorblocking of the Sanna Shawl are calmly appealing to me, and I love the graphic yoke of the Meko Pullover. So many color opportunities.
Knitscene does it again with another great issue! Which one will you make?
