Follow Your Arrow 2

Ysolda Teague's new Knit-A-Long is starting on Monday 19th January!

It's a similar format to last year...

There will be five clues, and every clue will come with two options either of which builds perfectly from whichever you chose previously. The result is 32 possible combinations.  You can use a single colour, different colours for different clues or a small amount of contrast colour detail.

You can read all about it on the Ravelry pattern page and join others in the KAL group.

For The Woolly Brew Arrow, we're (Fiona!) using the fab Vivacious 4ply in Spiced Plum.

Other 4ply options in the shop include... Jamieson's Spindrift, Scrumptious 4ply, Artesano Definition and of course the Zauberballs...

p.s. See the finished shawl from last years KAL here.

It's here!!!!

From the book blurb...

"In this exciting new book, writer and designer Kate Davies unravels the tale of one of the Twentieth Century’s most distinctive sweater styles - the circular yoke.

From Shetland and Iceland to Canada and Sweden, Kate’s essays and conversations take you on a journey around the North Atlantic, exploring the yoke’s intriguing and often surprising regional narratives.

 A garment with unexpected national and political resonances; an important marker of personal and cultural identity; a fashionable barometer of trends and technical transformations from the 1920s to today, yokes have connected the lives and livelihoods of many different women.

In this book you’ll hear the voices of those women, from designers to artists, from knitters to entrepreneurs. You will read about Elizabeth Zimmermann’s seamless innovations, learn more of Kerstin Olsson’s knitterly aesthetics, and discover the fascinating influence of the Greenlandic nuilarmiut. The essays and conversations are accompanied by a collection of eleven signature yoke patterns. Featuring a wide range of design elements from colourwork and cables to beads and texture,

Kate has created a yoke for every knitter. So take up your needles, open up this book, and discover the story of the sweater that changed the shape of modern knitting."

Check out the designs on Ravelry and read more about the book on Kate's blog.  There is a special info page on Kate's blog featuring a handy cheat sheet on all the designs!
