New Month, New Photo Shoot!
Headed out today to get some images of the lovely Kathryn Johnson modeling new NTS designs! She also be seen wearing the re-release of Key to my Heart mittens, and Spring Thaw tee, two designs originally made for Knitcircus Magazine that will be coming out in the NTS shop this week.
Also, new out this week in the Spring 2011 issue of Knitcircus, my newest article in the Choose It and Use It series: Lightweight Yarns.
Lots of tips for knitting with fingering and lace yarns, including a scale for easily determining yarn weight, and tips for appropriate project choices! Other installments so far have included Choose It and Use It: Hand Dyed and Choose It and Use It: Sweater Yarn... if you have an idea for an article you would like to see in future issues, please leave me a comment!
Also, we've had the public release of the "Snowdrifts" Hat,
with our lovely model Bianca, and a special thank you to Nangellini for providing the handspun for the hat sample. The colorway shown is Stagelit, one of the CTA SAL colors, and the pattern was originally designed for our Snowdrifts Fiber club, but is now for sale on Ravelry.
Busy, busy! more to come soon, hope everyone is having a great weekend and enjoying a break in all the bad weather!
