I am so thrilled to be releasing a new sweater for this year’s Insta-friends KAL hosted by Jess (Shop La Mercerie) and Kjerste (Wax & Wool)! I will be hanging out at Jess’ booth on Sunday from 1-2 to chat, take photos and help you pick out your yarn!!
We're holding this event on Monday, October 7th, from 10am to 5pm. This is going to be the Monday following Knit City in Vancouver BC, and that's no coincidence!
We've been chatting with Amanda and Fiona, the organizers of Knit City, for a while now about offering tours and an open house in conjunction with their annual event, and now it's happening! If you're driving up I-5 to Vancouver for the show, add us to your itinerary on the way back! We're at 2135 Queen St, Bellingham WA. Exit I-5 at Iowa Street and head east. Take a left on Pacific, a right on Kentucky and another left of Queen Street! (See the map below.)
We get a lot of requests for mill tours, and unfortunately we are almost never able to give them, so this is a rare opportunity to come and see where we dye and spin the yarns!
Dami will be here with lots of her amazing Magpie Fibers yarn, and Andrea will be hanging out and signing patterns and being just generally lovely! We'll have light refreshments and snacks as well. See you soon! xoxo, Kate and Rachel”

I am so thrilled to be teaching at the Squam Spring Retreat! I will be teaching an introductory brioche course so you can learn the necessary skills to knit my Briochealicious Shawl!
Shawls are the perfect finish to any outfit all year round! In this class, we will learn the techniques to make a show stopper – the Briochealicious shawl! Crescent shaping gives this shawl a very generous wingspan for a multitude of styling options.
Three color-block stripes of bouncy brioche gives you the chance to adapt it to your style, while squishy garter gives plenty of time to relax! We will delve into the addicting world of two-color brioche, a beautiful reversible fabric, that makes this shawl truly unique. The shawl is finished with a super stretchy bind off, which is a great bind off to learn for any project!
We will end it all by discussing how to block our shawl for the perfect shape and drape!
In this class we will begin playing around with what makes brioche so special. When working brioche in two colors, a whole new world of color play is opened up to you! Discover how to blend colors and add depth thru contrast. We will also discuss using different fibers and weights together to really mix things up. We will learn how to increase and decrease in brioche, and how it goes far beyond just shaping your fabric, to create the appearance of intricate cables and lace.
I'll be bringing lots of beautiful brioche pieces to look at and try on!
Please note that this class is for knitters already comfortable with brioche knit and brioche purl stitches.
