Fall weather is upon us! I don’t know about you but I love the scents of this season, moist leaves burning in the crisp autumn air and apple cider on the stove with cinnamon sticks to greet you when you come home. Delicious!!
We are so excited to have this weather change upon us since it is perfect timing to cast on a pair of socks. Join us at Alpaca Direct as we join Michelle Hunter in her Cableship KAL! This toe up sock pattern is full of great cable techniques, but also includes a heel that is new to the series. This KAL is free and no registration is required. Simply click here anytime after 9am, tomorrow, October 6th, to download the first installment of the pattern. Videos and daily feedback will be provided by Michelle Hunter on her website and on Ravelry.
If you have not bought your Zauberball check out our selection of them and get it ordered so you can be a part of this great autumn project!
Prizes will be provided by Skacel Collection.
Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home. Get your knit decor on with six of my favorite patterns from Alpaca Direct!
Kelley shows you how to knit the Left Twist. This is a nice complementary stitch to regular cabling, plus you can add these twists without the extra work of using a cable needle. This stitch looks good as a border on the edge of regular cables.
