We're having a ball introducing you to our first yarn line, Coeur d'Alene Yarns. The first yarn in the line is Sasquatch, a fingering yarn hand-dyed locally in the Pacific Northwest and exclusive to Alpaca Direct!
Kelley worked with the dyer to develop coordinating colors, one tonal and one multi, that are just perfect for creating gorgeous accessories, colorwork projects, and anything else you can think of.
Here are a few of the combos.
With the merino-cashmere blend, it's going to be so soft and warm. There's a little nylon in there, too, which will help the sweater hold it's shape nicely.
Here's Kelley to show you even more!
Aren't these just amazing yarns? We are seriously obsessed. Leave a comment below and share your favorite combo!
If you've ever struggled with the decrease section when knitting a hat on 16-inch circular needles, you need to learn the Magic Loop method of knitting. Similarly, if you hate how sweater sleeves twist up while knitting in the round, you need to learn the magic loop technique.
This technique works on just about any size project, so you can use it exclusively for smaller projects in the round, such as hats, sleeves, mittens, cowls, socks, and so on.
Kelley just finished knitting the Shift Cowl by Andrea Mowry, and she's fallen in love with mosaic knitting.
While it sounds complicated or fiddly—mosaics are made up of little pieces of glass, after all—mosaic knitting is super easy. Seriously, you end up with a beautiful colorwork project, but you're only using one color in each row.
