Today’s live was chock full of project ideas with a very special Local Yarn Store (LYS) day kit from Baah Yarns, a new Rowan KAL with Georgia Farrell, a trunk show and spring party, and more.
In honor of LYS Day, Baah Yarns has put together a very special Love Your Yarn Store ’22 kit. The kit includes 3 skeins of La Jolla in special colorways and a shawl pattern by Mira Cole. Please note that this is a pre-order and won’t ship until April 30th (yarn store day!).

It’s time for another Rowan KAL! A Built World Knit Along features seven beautiful textured squares in three different Pure Wool Superwash Worsted, designed by one of our favorite designers, Georgia Farrell! Georgia has suggested designs for seven projects: large and medium blankets and runners, and three options for cushions. If you’re looking for a fun project to join – we have materials available and you can sign up here!
Pure Wool Superwash Worsted
- 100% wool
- 100gm/218yd (200m)
- 20sts/4″ – size 7 (4.5mm) needle – Worsted/Aran
This award-winning worsted weight yarn is as versatile as it is popular. Knitters love its wide colour range, high quality pure wool fibre and soft handle. Its excellent stitch definition makes it an easy choice for lace, cables and texture, allowing even the most intricate stitch patterns to shine. With beautiful shades ranging from punchy brights to classic neutrals, the broad palette of Pure Wool Worsted appeals to colourwork lovers too. Knit it at worsted tension, or get playful, using larger or smaller needles for interesting effects – it’s the ultimate can-do yarn.
This week we got in more colors of Dungarees Paint from Queensland. This cotton blend is spun from recycled jeans and is perfect for this season’s knit and crochet projects. We even found a few fun patterns designed by by Claudia Wersing like Naira, a lightweight poncho designed and the Mia Top, a tank with lacy edging.
from The Queensland Collection:
- 95% cotton, 5% other fibers
- 100gm/339yds (310m)
- 23-26sts=4″ – size 3-5 (3.25-3.75mm) needle – Sport
We’ve added a new line to our fashion and handbag offerings. Crosstree Lane has fun and stylish fashions for your every day life. So far we’ve only got a few items in but we’ll be getting more soon!
This week Jeannie finished her sample of Reversal by Jacob Seifert. This gorgeous brioche shawl graced the cover of Vogue Spring/Summer 2020 Issue, and is knit up in Urth Yarns’ Merino Gradient kit and Monokrom Fingering. The pattern is a little tricky to get – you’ll have to purchase a digital issue of magazine since it’s out of print, but this is a gorgeous project for summer knits!
And finally, we’re getting ready for a party! From May 21-28 we’ll be hosting a trunk show from Baah Yarns featuring their New York yarns. We thought this would be the perfect time for a spring get together. We’ll be unveiling the trunk show on Saturday, May 21st and you can get a VIP package to attend virtually or in person. Goodie bags, a fashion show – you won’t want to miss this event so start spreading the news and reserve your spot at vip.swakknit.com!
