New Shibui, Grey Duck Bag Co, Shore Stitching from Kirk & Bradley & More!



 


A Shibui Summer
  


Shibui's Summer 2019 brings a handful of gorgeous new designs and a beautiful new color new color across its line of yarns.  Meet Twilight, a beautiful grey-blue hue that is sophisticated and stylish just like all things Shibui.  We currently have Twilight in our favorite Shibui yarns Silk CloudFern and Pebble.  Whether you knit up a Spectrum Wrap or a Mirage top in this beautiful new color way, we know you'll love this cool, new neutral.

To complement this beautiful new color, Shibui has released a small collection of new patterns.  Goodall (pictured just below) is an incredibly wearable, modern shell with a high-low hem.  Knit in a combination of Shibui's Reed and Cima, this fabric can be worn on the hottest summer days and layered throughout the year.  

Earhart (pictured at bottom) is a light and luminous wrap, knit in a combination Reed & Lunar.  The unlikely combination of these two fabrics makes a texture that is a feast for the skin and the eyes.  









Come Meet our Nightshift

We have a gorgeous new sample at the shop courtesy of Alex!  She knit up this popular Andrea Mowry pattern Nightshift using two balls of Noro's glorious Ito yarn.  Check out what Alex has to say about this wonderful project:

"I have had a designer crush on Andrea Mowry for quite a while, and have had my eye on her “Nightshift” wrap.  When I was laid up with a recent injury, knitting “nightshift” in Noro’s Ito has brought me great joy.  The wrap is a colorful mosaic just created with knits, purls and slips with a gorgeous I cord edging. The pattern is very intuitive, and soon was able to read my knitting and not even refer to the pattern.  The yarn enabled the wrap to keep shifting and changing.  I never knew what color combination would knit up next which was half the fun.  

"The pattern called for six skeins of a worsted weight yarn, but I only needed two of Ito since it is 437 yards per skein with the most beautiful color variegation. Mowry writes the pattern two different ways.  One way spells out every step using 6 colors.  The second way enabled me to do the same 40 rows nine times to create this fabulous shawl!   I so loved knitting up this wrap that I plan on making another one."

Fair Isle Fanatic

After some technique tweaking by Wool & Grace staff this week, we are excited to talk about stranded colorwork knitting all over again.  It is so fun to play with color in this way, but not all projects are created equal when it comes to learning techniques, whether you be a Fair Isle newbie or veteran.  This week's blog talks about colorwork habits and techniques and the projects that will help you learn these in the most constructive way.  Click here to keep reading and feel confident about your first (or next) stranded colorwork project!
