1/52 Weeks of Wool: Cotswold

by Ashley @

This marks my first week of the 52 Week of Wool project, and my first handspun yarn…something I’m pretty dang excited about. You can find some background on this project here. It was a bit of an interesting start. Being that I’m new to spinning, I’m also new to spinning wheels. I was lent an old Ashford Traditional wheel by a neighbor last Summer and when I started to try and spin on it, it wasn’t going how I had been shown or watched in videos. I fumbled around for a couple nights, ending in frustration and bewilderment. So I consulted YouTube once again and realized there were some vital pieces missing…the tension knob, tension springs and tension string. I found some Ashford maintenance kits online, but realized I could probably just as easily find the parts at our local hardware store. And that I did. So that evening I fashioned the springs and string and a temporary knob out of a pencil…haha. I’ll replace that part once I find the right sized dowel and knob. And now it works like a charm, as far as I can tell. 🙂 As I began to spin words of wisdom from my class at […]

All About Different Mattress Thickness

by Lindsay S @ Choose Mattress

One of the many common attributes you will see listed when reading through any mattress reviews or specifications is not just the name, brand, or material, but also the stated mattress thickness, which is sometimes specified as its height. Many people may mistakenly believe that the different mattress sizes correlate to their height, but this isn’t necessarily true – you can get thick Twin and thin Queen, and vice versa. In this article we touch a little more briefly upon size. Why Mattress Height Matters Mattress height plays a large role in how the bed appears in the room. Will

Mattress Disposal and Recycling

by Lindsay S @ Choose Mattress

With all the millions of mattresses being sold annually worldwide it’s wonder where all of these used mattresses cease to be worthy at the end of their life cycle. I used to have an image of huge refuse sites with stacks of rubbish and piles of mattresses. In the US, this is no longer the case as it was some decades ago. However, in many places across the world, a landfill site is certainly where old mattresses still do tend to expire, piled high in corners of tips where they take up space and cause unnecessary harm to the environment.

Seamed vs. Seamless: A discussion on construction with Hannah Fettig

by Ashley @

We’ve just begun our second month in the Home and Away Woolful Knit-a-long, and of course there’s still time to join, heck I am just swatching for mine now! There have been some wonderful shares on Instagram (via #woolfulkal) and shares on the Ravelry group so make sure to check those out. I’ve loved seeing so many different projects in both seamed and seamless construction, from both beginners and seasoned knitters. I’ll be knitting a seamed Georgetown for the very reasons Hannah talks about here… The word is out: one of the awesome features of Home & Away is that you can choose to either knit your sweater in pieces and then seam them or knit it seamless in one big piece. There is no wrong choice, as either way will yield the same result. If you’re wondering, there are advantages to both methods which you can consider. A seamed sweater, knit in pieces, makes your project more portable. Also, the seams in your completed sweater will add structure and stability. Knit fabric by nature wants to stretch. Seams keep everything in place. When you have a floaty open cardigan such as Hancock you might not be as concerned about structure. […]

52 Weeks of Wool: The beginning

by Ashley @

A few podcast episodes back I shared about a new project I’m embarking on over the course of the next 52 weeks…well 51 now. I thought it might be good to share a bit about my hopes and goals for this project. For the past year I’ve mentioned off and on about my hope to learn to spin on a wheel, while at the same time agonizing a bit over the thought that it will take precious time away from knitting. However, the desire to spin has nagged at me ever since I took an Intro to Spinning class at A Verb for Keeping Warm exactly a year ago, and so I decided to go for it. I am a total newb to spinning. I’ve only spun with a drop spindle twice. I’ve had a wheel in my house for the past 6 months and only practiced treadling on it. When I decided to do this project, I purposefully opted to wait and not practice, so that my first week and first spin would truly be my first. Years ago I learned a nifty thing from Kate Bingamam-Burt called ‘Automated Directives’. You can find more info here, but the gist is […]

I’m very excited to share the eighteenth episode of the Woolful podcast. Today we get to meet an incredibly inspiring sheep farmer and shepherdess from Tasmania, Nan Bray of White Gum Wool. Sponsor: This episode is sponsored by Yarn, a charming online and local yarn shop based in Eureka, California. Yarn was created by Sunni Schrivner who has a dedication for natural fibers and supporting local yarns. Make sure to visit Yarn in person when on the coast in hum bolt county and online at yarn-fun.com. Fiber folk: Nan Bray first came on my fiber radar when a listener sent me an email sharing a bit about what Nan was up to and encouraging me to reach out and learn more. I’m so glad I did. Nan’s journey as a scientist to fiber farmer and shepherdess touches on a lot of interesting challenges and her approach to farming wool has evolved into something quite special, both personally and as a business. You can find Nan at Whitegumwool.com.au Man on the street: For this week’s “Man on the Street” I asked a handful of fiber enthusiasts to answer the following question, shared by Susan in the Woolful Ravelry group. “Desert island scenario: What knitting book or […]

Last Fall we celebrated Tolt’s second anniversary, with the release of a very special book, Farm to Needle: Stories of Wool.

by Ashley @

  Sponsor: Tucked away into the heart of Leelanau County, where cherry trees, centennial farms and wine grapes meet the shores of Lake Michigan, is a knitter’s paradise and that place is Wool & Honey.  Wool & Honey’s focus is on thoughtful companies who add their own stories to our little spot in the world–brands that highlight fibers that mirror the exquisite natural beauty of their area. Michigan fiber artists are paramount—and their selection of locally grown, dyed, spun yarns and fiber is unparalleled. The hive is the center of it all–it’s home. Home to bees of all ages and ability levels, each adding a bit of shine to a vibrant community. Every day, these tiny workers gather pollen–powdery bits of fluff–and with a little time and effort, transform it into gorgeous, golden nectar. How similar we knitters are to the bee! Taking nothing more than two sticks and a string, we create warmth and comfort, fabric to clothe and decorate our bodies. On September 27th from 7-9pm, Stephen West will be spending an evening at Wool & Honey, sipping cocktails, trying on his huge collection of knitted samples and listening to Stephen share the Westknits story.

Woolspiration: Knitting Pretty c.1955

by Ashley @

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted a Woolspiration post. I’ve been gathering an archive over the past year and am looking forward to sharing these videos, articles and books with you more regularly. Today we have a great film from the past, ‘Knitting Pretty‘. This charming piece is filmed in Kodachrome and features a woman named Patricia Scott. She is a knitting adviser for Lavenda and her job is to visit conferences and shops, helping customers choose wools, needles, patterns and answer questions. The film gives some background on wool processing, choosing ply, the best way to wind the wool, how to calculate gauge, and even how to wash your woolens. While all of this information we find readily available today online, in your LYS or in a book…’Knitting Pretty’ takes you back to a day when this information wasn’t as easy to come by, yet creating your own garments was just as sought after, if not more so. To watch the extract of the film, go here or click photo below.

Woolfolk FW16: LØS and KURV

by Ashley @

How is it September already? It’s officially Fall here on the ranch, and on the turn of a dime. Last week we went from the 90s to the low 50s…leaves are turning and falling…the stove has been lit…all the animals are ready for hay…and my knits are out of the drawers. Mmm I love this time of year, and even more so when the seasons are so distinct and welcoming. I’ve actually been dreaming about this time of year since January when I began designing two pieces for Woolfolk’s FW16 collection, which made its debut today. What an honor to be alongside inspirational folks such as Julie Hoover, Michele Wang, Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy, Melanie Berg, Laura Chau, Olga Buraya-Kefelian and Antonia Shankland. But none of this would be possible without the dynamo that is Kristin Ford, creator of Woolfolk – a woman with impeccable taste, skilled designer, cattle rancher, arborist, and friend who’s always good for a laugh. You can listen to her story here. So without further ado, I’m pleased to introduce LØS and KURV. LØS is a simple pullover that incorporates sequence knitting principals, specifically a serpentine pattern. I was inspired to design this piece after getting to know Cecelia Campochiaro and […]

Will my Spindle mattress soften or sag? Yes. All mattresses do.

by Kim Novick @ spindle

All mattresses will eventually soften, sag or get an imprint from where you've been sleeping. The good news is that latex does it at half the rate of a conventional material. The normal compression in a traditional mattress is an inch and a half to two inches. Your Spindle is warrantied against impressions greater than 3/4". That's a "yuge" difference.

A place for me to share my love of fiber, but also to share our journey, my journey, however it touched our lives and wherever it took us…in the hopes it would encourage, inspire and help inform. In many ways it has done that, especially with the podcast, however with the podcast I intentionally do my best to focus on the guests and less on me. And while it has/is great fun, it hasn’t gone unnoticed by me that this blog’s focus has become very much the podcast and less about personal journey and things we’re learning and going through. So, that’s a long winded way of saying that I want to keep myself accountable to my initial reasons for starting this blog and dedicate more time to sharing where we’re at and what’s going on. So all the folks that come here for the podcast might be surprised by some of these posts because they will be very much […]

Episode 19: Ashli Tyre – Mount Rainier, Navajo weaving, Natural dyeing and process

by @ Making

I’m very excited to share the eighteenth episode of the Woolful podcast. Today we get to meet and hear the journey of a fascinating weaver from the Pacific Northwest, Ashli Tyre. Sponsor: This episode is sponsored by Portfiber, a wonderful shop in Portland, Maine, specializing in one of a kind, hand-dyed fiber and yarn. Casey has curated an incredible collection of spinning fiber including yak, Chiri, Alpaca, Polwarth and hand-dyed blends. You can visit Portfiber in person when in Portland Maine or shop online at portfiber.com Fiber folk: I first came across Ashli’s work via Instagram awhile back when I was mesmerized by her weaving and one day my friend Kathy sent an email sharing a bit of Ashli’s special story, process and a photo she’d taken, thinking she’d be a beautiful addition to the podcast. I couldn’t agree more. Much of Ashli’s inspiration comes from a very special place, the Pacific Northwest and in particular, Mount Rainier. Her approach and dedication to process, from wool selection, to natural dyeing to spinning and weaving, is just incredible. You can find Ashli at ashlityre.wordpress.com and on Instagram @ashlidtyre.

How to assemble your Spindle Mattress at home.

by admin @ spindle

All mattresses will eventually soften, sag or get an imprint from where you've been sleeping. The good news is that latex does it at half the rate of a conventional material. The normal compression in a traditional mattress is an inch and a half to two inches. Your Spindle is warrantied against impressions greater than 3/4". That's a "yuge" difference.

Summer Knitalong: Home and Away – Share your knits

by Ashley @

The Summer knitalong had an incredible energy…so many folks joined in knitting a pattern from Hannah Fettig’s most recent book Home and Away…and they were ALL lovely. It seemed that out of all the patterns, the Lesley pullover was the most knit, with the most unique being that from Whitney @whit_knits who handspun the yarn for her Lesley. I think a close second was the Boothbay cardigan, with another unique take from @garmenthouse, who added a purl stitch here and there to create a beautiful stitch pattern. It was wonderful to see everyone’s such positive response to this beautiful collection of patterns and come away with a new hand knit for Fall. I just finished my own Georgetown this past week and it may just be my new favorite sweater, it’s so versatile and the Quince and Co Owl I knit it with was just the blended tweedy-type goodness I longed for in my wardrobe. And for those of you still finishing your projects or wanting to knit something from Home and Away…Quince and Co has a “Knitbot Knitalong” starting tomorrow…so keep your eye on their Instagram @quinceandco and blog for more info! Tomorrow we start Fall Woolful Knitalong…so make […]

4/52 Weeks of Wool: Romney

by Ashley @

It’s been an eventful week around here, with our Maremma pups having some ‘escapades‘ in our surrounding forest (more on that later), along with our beloved Dexter dairy cow Lulu joining them on one such event and coming down with bloat and scours. We weren’t sure she was going to make it, but thankfully she’s pulling through and I’ll be writing a whole post about this (with photos)…there’s a lot more to share. Although this post mark’s the 4th week of my 52 Weeks of wool project, I’ve been keeping up with the actual spinning each week, just a bit behind on the posts. 🙂 And now I make a novice claim…Romney is the perfect fiber to learn and begin spinning with! Of the 8+ fibers I’ve spun thus far, this has been the easiest to maintain consistency in weight and drafting. Romney is not the softest of fibers, but it’s rusticity lends itself so well to the beginner spinner’s eager will and is forgiving of the minor pauses in cadence that are often unforgiving in other fibers. At least this is my experience and I’ve heard something similar from a couple other spinners since, so if you’re new to spinning […]

2/52 Weeks of Wool: Cormo

by Ashley @

In spite of my growing spinning habit (read – can’t stop won’t stop spinning), I’m a bit behind on my 52 Week of Wool posts here on the blog. I’m currently working from SF this week and so I have my evenings to catch up. This marks my second week’s wool and it’s my most favorite sheep breed of all…Cormo. I’m having a lot of fun spinning. Far more than I anticipated I would. Like, ‘let Coltrane stay up two hours past his bedtime so I can spin more’ fun. Try as I might, I often find myself falling asleep when I put Coltrane to bed, and there’s no getting up once that happens. I blame it on Winter. 😉 This week was quite a different experience than last. My drafting skills are getting far better, which excites me so much. While I love the rustic lumpy bumpy, being able to spin a consistent weight for longer periods of time is so satisfying. The twist however with this batch of wool is that it came to me as a washed fleece, not roving. I was excited to use my antique hand carders I picked up at a shop in Nampa, Idaho when visiting my friend Liz […]

5 Common Types Of Sleep Disorders

by Lindsay S @ Choose Mattress

Minor and major sleep disorders are becoming an increasingly common occurrence in modern times, especially prevalent in individuals who have for whatever reason failed to embrace healthy and stress-free lifestyles. It’s important to note that the most common sleep disorders doesn’t necessarily mean lack of sleep, it can also mean too much of it, or alternatively could be neither, but instead something that occurs during slumber that isn’t classed as a normal sleeping habit such as excessive snoring. Broadly speaking, these types of disorders occur in the form of compromised rejuvenation, and will eventually compromise the overall well-being and health

Woolspiration: Miss Wool of America

by Ashley @

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted a Woolspiration video, but the good news is that I’ve been stock piling them so these posts which have been a favorite in the past, will now be more regular. Miss Wool of America…did you know this even existed?! Well it did from 1952-1972. How amazing would it be if something like this existed today. It’s absence is another sign of the American wool industry’s decline and production moving overseas. While I’m really not a fan of beauty pageants per se, I think the fact that the vibrancy of the wool industry at one point demanded one is pretty fantastic. If there were a “Miss Wool” of America today, what and who would she be? A farmer? A designer? A knitter? A model? A shepherdess? There is such a strong pulse in the fiber community and industry right now, I can feel a revival coming on. It may be a long and arduous process, but I do believe one day we will see the wool industry grow again in America and although it will most likely be far different than it was before, how awesome is it that we get to be a part […]

Considerations Before Buying A Mattress

by Lindsay S @ Choose Mattress

Mattress shopping is not the time for impulse buys. A new mattress can run into the multi-thousands of dollars and will be bulky and difficult to move. Since you’ll also be spending up to a third of the next five to ten years asleep on one, it’s very important to take the time to understand the mattress world and your own needs so you can feel great about your purchase. According to the Huffington Post, a bad mattress will affect your ability to sleep. For example, if you consistently feel hot or uncomfortable during the night, you’ll likely toss and

Why Good Sleep Matters So Much

We humans spend about one-third of our lives asleep. This one-third greatly impacts the quality of the other two-thirds of our lives. Many things contribute to a good night’s rest, and your mattress lies at the foundation. According to WebMD, when it comes to sleep quality, “to get it right, you’ve got to start with the basics and your mattress is the first building block to a restful slumber.” After all, if you’re tossing and turning all night, struggling to get your body into a pain-free position, your sleep quality will be poor, and your wellness will suffer.

  Sponsor: Tucked away into the heart of Leelanau County, where cherry trees, centennial farms and wine grapes meet the shores of Lake Michigan, is a knitter’s paradise and that place is Wool & Honey.  Wool & Honey’s focus is on thoughtful companies who add their own stories to our little spot in the world–brands that highlight fibers that mirror the exquisite natural beauty of their area. Michigan fiber artists are paramount—and their selection of locally grown, dyed, spun yarns and fiber is unparalleled. The hive is the center of it all–it’s home. Home to bees of all ages and ability levels, each adding a bit of shine to a vibrant community.

Taking nothing more than two sticks and a string, we create warmth and comfort, fabric to clothe and decorate our bodies. On September 27th from 7-9pm, Stephen West will be spending an evening at Wool & Honey, sipping cocktails, trying on his huge collection of knitted samples and listening to Stephen share the Westknits story.

3/52 Weeks of Wool: Shetland

by Ashley @

Back in SF this week for work and a short jaunt to Stitches West, so I find myself with a bit more time in the evenings to catch up on 52 Weeks of Wool posts. I’ve got 6 different skeins of breed specific handspun yarn, just waiting to be knit and shown off. I’ve found a new ritual each morning. Pulling our makeshift quilt curtain from the window, stoking the fire and shuffling to my wheel soon after waking up. Sitting down I have to reacquaint myself, it’s not quite become second nature like knitting has and often times Coltrane is at my side, with his foot next to mine on the treadle or his hand on mine as I draft. While his attention lasts just a few moments, it’s precious. This marks my third week’s wool and very much a joy in the struggle. Squishy, lovely, lofty Shetland. The previous two week’s I’d worked with fibers that had longer staple lengths and so I was setup for a surprise as I began spinning the short staple Shetland roving. It became apparent right away that I needed to alter specific mechanics of my spinning. When I began, I kept losing the yarn […]

What prevents the latex from shifting in my Spindle?

by Kim Novick @ spindle

Some mattress makers wrap their latex in individual covers. It looks fancier and lends a misperceived added value to the product. Kind of like putting little bows on the end of pork chops. We don't wrap our latex. Check out the video and find out why.

Tempur-Pedic Alternatives In 2018

by Lindsay S @ Choose Mattress

While you may or may not love your bed, ask yourself – how comfortable are you while sleeping on it? Replacing your decade old mattress can help you sleep comfortably, but choosing the best mattress isn’t always as simple as one may think. For example, brands and types are abundant, and budgets range from cheap to very expensive, so scrimping could be detrimental to health, whilst overpaying could be pointless. If you’ve chosen the wrong mattress for yourself in terms of comfort, you’d most likely end up having a tough time sleeping and eventually suffer from sleep deprivation. Comfort aside,

It’s the first of the month and ya’ll know what that means! Beauty Heroes drops their new discovery. This month is all about Fitglow and we are seeing not one but TWO of their face creams! Cloud Comfort Cream, $84 and Redness Rescue Cream, $69. A total value of $153 and available to members and new members for less than $39. Say it with me, DEAL!

Discussing Mattress Pads vs Toppers

After a long hard day’s work, many of us look forward to coming home and crashing out on a comfortable bed. However, we get home, throw our clothes to the floor and jump in bed only to find it’s no longer as comfortable as it once was. What to do next? Perhaps buying a new mattress isn’t an option, after all they can be quite expensive, or perhaps your landlord advises against it, or maybe even donating a mattress where you live is difficult. There are numerous constraints one can come across. In which case, an excellent answer to these

Shipping Troubles

by @ Suite Sleep, Inc.: Latest News

It's a nightmarish scenario:

You've spent weeks, even months, trying to find the perfect mattress, made your decision, and now you just have to wait for it to show up!  Excitement builds when you get a call from the delivery company to scheduled your appointment, you get rid of your old mattress, take time off work to make sure you don't miss them, and then you sit and wait...and wait.....and wait some more.

Unfortunately, the delivery company doesn't show up when they said they would and you've now wasted a few hours sitting around, or worse yet, they've showed up but your brand new mattress has been destroyed.

Sadly, this is a situation we have seen time and again when shipping mattresses with freight carriers, leading to disappointed and upset customers as well as lost sales.  Over the course of the last 7 years, I've learned more about freight, White Glove deliveries, and shipping in general than I ever thought I would, yet no matter how much we try to prevent problems that we see on a regular basis, they continue to plague us.  The troubles we face with freight shipping are based in the fact that these LTL (Less than Truckload) freight companies are not set up in the best way possible to deliver furniture to residential locations.  These companies typically deliver large shipments in a large semi truck to businesses with loading docks, forklifts and teams of people to help unload.  While there is an alternative, white glove delivery can cost upwards of $750 for one mattress, take as long as 2 weeks to deliver, and still doesn't guarantee a smooth and timely delivery.

Over the years, we have tried many different options to get our product to our customers as quickly and safely as possible, and the shipper with the best track record has consistently been UPS.  Over many years and thousands of shipments, we have had just a handful of shipments arrive damaged, or go missing.  This created a problem for us, as mattresses are quite a bit too large to put on a UPS truck!  The solution we came to, is to create a mattress that can be easily broken down into smaller pieces, shipped via UPS, and then quickly assembled in the customers home. 

There are many other benefits of constructing the mattress this way!  

Easier Installation

First is mobility - Latex mattresses can weigh over 300 Lbs., and have little structure to them, making them very difficult to move especially when stairs are involved.  By breaking the inside of the mattress into three smaller and lighter pieces we have made it exponentially easier.  

Customized Sleep

Another benefit is creating customized sleep and the ability to change the feel of your mattress.  As time goes on, our bodies change, our preferences change, and our mattresses don't adapt.  Instead of completely replacing your entire mattress, you can now change just the support layer to adjust the firmness to your liking!  Is your partner unhappy, but you still love the way it feels?  Great!  you can have different firmnesses on either side of your bed so you both sleep soundly. The support layer of the mattress is split right down the middle, and the top layer is kept whole so you will never notice the split below.  The cover is made with a zipper, so once you have laid the foam into the base, you can zip it closed and get a better night's sleep right away!  

Less Wear and Tear

Another problem we ran into is that when the latex foam layers are placed atop one another, movement can cause them to rub together and slowly break down.  To prevent this from happening, make sure your mattress will last as long as possible and make it easier to handle, we have wrapped each internal piece with a thin layer of organic cotton.

We've been shipping mattresses for more than 15 years and have seen it all. We've shipped on pallets, shipped in pieces and even embraced roll-packing technology. Roll-packing degrades the latex more quickly and pallets encourage the use of fork-lifts that inevitably end up spearing the mattress. But when it comes to all latex mattresses, we achieve the best outcomes when we ship them in separate pieces. We break it down into manageable components, box them, band them and send them to happy homes. We look forward to your business!

by Kim Goodling @

This is the first in a new series on the blog, featuring posts from past Woolful podcast guests, giving a bit of a deeper look into what they do, wisdom they have to share and stories they have to tell. I’m thrilled that Kim Goodling of VT Grand View Farm is here to share a bit of her lambing journey at her farm in Vermont, where she raises Gotland and Romney sheep. Thank you Kim!  Keeping Watch The ewes grow round and full with lambs and the wait begins. I have cleaned the barn, set up the lambing pen, and restocked my lambing kit. I now watch for signs of labor, spending much time bent over, looking at the back side of my ewes. Swollen udders and sunken bellies signal that a ewe will soon deliver her lambs.  Night watch will begin soon, as we near the first due date marked on our calendar, March 28. Walk…Relax…Stay Nourished…Breathe Naturally…Make Your Nest and Push… For ten years, I taught natural childbirth classes. I worked with couples, teaching them how to labor. We spent time practicing deep abdominal breathing and focusing on our bodies and how they work during labor. Every week we watched videos […]

10 Tricks to Make Your Mattress Firmer

by Laura @ JustGoSleep

When buying a mattress, firmness is a major consideration. We spend a lot of time testing mattresses to get one that is not too firm nor too soft. The level of firmness we are looking for is determined by several factors ranging from medical conditions, sleeping posture, and even personal preference. Despite this, as we continually use the mattress, it loses its firmness. Changes in our body weight, pregnancy, and even age may call for different levels of firmness. While replacing the mattress is a viable option, it is not cost effective. Below we look at 10 ways to make your mattress

Woolful Knitalong: The Portland Pullover

by Ashley @

Today marks the beginning of the latest Woolful KAL, although if you’re like me you don’t even have your yarn yet. 🙂 So I’ll be swatching with some leftover Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and getting ready to cast on the moment my yarn arrives. When I first got the latest issue of Taproot, aptly named ‘Shelter’, I wasn’t totally sure how I felt about the Portland Pullover. I’ve recently made the discovery that I prefer set-in sleeves far more than raglan shaping because of its fit and I had made a momentary mental note to ‘only knit set-in sleeves’ from here on out…until I realized how silly that is. So when I picked up the issue and flipped through it again, I lingered on the pullover pattern a bit longer, admiring it’s neck shaping and simple silhouette. Ok. Done. I’m in. I realized then how great it would be to knit my first sweater started in the new year with friends…so, here we go. What: Portland Pullover by Carrie Bostick Hoge. You can find this pattern in the most recent issue of Taproot, Shelter. Go grab a copy or subscription if you haven’t already! When: January 1st-ish through March 31st 2016. With: Brooklyn Tweed […]

Styling your knits: An exercise with Hannah Fettig

The Home and Away Woolful Knit-a-long is off to a radiant start, and you can still join if you’ve been hoping to! It’s been so great to see all the beautiful images on Instagram (via #woolfulkal) and shares on the Ravelry group. I’ve been super anxious to cast on, but alas it will have to wait until this weekend when I have the yarn and a moment to swatch. In the meantime, Hannah has some great tips on styling and choosing the right yarn… My wardrobe is pretty minimal. This is partly from necessity, as we’ve always lived in old New England homes with very small closets. But in reality even if I own 20 shirts, I only truly wear 4 of them in high rotation. Is this the case for you, too? Go to your closet and set these much loved and worn pieces aside. Arrange them into outfits, top to bottom. Do you notice any patterns? For instance, is there a lot of the same color showing up? Are they all the same fabric or cut? Now, with these outfits in mind, you can start making your pattern selection.
