Today I’m catching up with What’s in the WIP, Events and knit along news. I’ve launched a new design, the Georgie Baby Blanket as part of the Dream Big collection and am getting very excited about Unwind Brighton happening this weekend.
Thank you to my show sponsor:
Juno Fibre Arts is an artisan yarn and fibre company producing a unique hand dyed collection of yarns and spinning fibres for handknits, spinning, felting and weaving. The Juno studio is located in the grounds of an old, working farm in rural Devon, surrounded by British countryside and the range draws inspiration from its stunning pastoral setting.
Juno yarn is dyed in small and exclusive batches and is available in limited editions on the Juno Arts Etsy shop so look out for the monthly shop updates towards the end of each month.
What’s in the WIP
Custom Fit Pullover
Custom Fit – “CustomFit makes custom patterns for hand-knit sweaters. It takes your choices, your body, and your hand-knit fabric and produces a pattern perfectly suited to you.”
I haven’t cast on this yet but have been stalking Custom Fit projects.
Erin and Jessica mention Custom Fit in their recent Double Knit episode 93
I’m keen to delve more into Amy Herzog’s Knit to Flatter course on Craftsy
and join in with the Knitting Pipeline Craftsy KAL.
