PRE-ORDER Interpretations 7: Joji Locatelli & Veera Välimäki

Since we are Pre-Ordering books, here’s another that’s been brought to my attention (if one person is deep in desire for it, someone else must be also be too).

Interpretations 7

Pre-Order your copy of “Interpretations 7” from PomPom Press, and it will be shipped or available for pick-up on December 10, 2020!

This series follows the journey of two friends from opposite sides of the world combining their love of their countries (Argentina and Finland) and beautiful knitwear. Volume 1 marked the beginning of an entirely new approach to designing, and their dream project has evolved to bring your their 7th volume. Each volume includes six themes: six words with two designs inspired by each word, showing a personal take on each of these themes.

The 6 words Joji and Veera have chosen for their new collection are Wonder, Root, Wild, Natural, Beyond, & Light! These lovely books are destined to become collector’s items, not to mention beautiful resources of patterns that you’re going to want to come back to time and again.

This year is the first time the two designers couldn’t be together to shoot the pattern photography for Interpretations. Due to travel restrictions, Joji and Veera shot their photos in their respective homelands of Argentina and Finland. Nevertheless, we think this volume is just as cohesive as its predecessors and reflects the hard work Joji and Veera put into making Volume 7 during a global pandemic!

Volume 7 features 12 garment and accessory knitting patterns from a variety of yarn producers including:

Wobble Gobble Yarn // Kässäkerho Pom Pom // Martin’s Lab // Magpie Fibers // Barnyard Knits // Retrosaria Rosa Pomar + La Bien Aimée // Suburban Stitcher // Walk Collection and more!

– printed in the UK // 116 pages // softcover –

PROJECT/KIT Sharon’s Glamping Blanket

For those of you who are not neck deep in holiday knitting, I thought this might be a nice bit of inspiration to keep you busy!

Casapinka Glamping Blanket 

This adorable blanket is a graphic combination of colours and textures. The yarn, Berroco Vintage Chunky, is the PERFECT blanket yarn – it’s soft and cozy, it knits up quickly, and it’s easy to wash – ideal for comfy snuggling for all ages and species! The pattern comes with 4 sizes, ranging from a cat blanket, baby blanket to a full sized sofa throw. You can also join the Sharon’s Gamping Blanket KAL (knit-a-long)!

You have two options for acquiring this project:

1. You can get the yarn right now on our website. We actually carry this yarn all year, it’s a staple around the store (although some popular colours have been in short supply due to COVID related production shortages). You can see what other people have done HERE (I like the contrast between the bright orange and red in this one).

2. The distributor and designer have collaborated to make kits available, which you can pre-order below (4 colours and 4 sizes available) and we will get it for you!

  • Cat Blanket: 18″ X 22”
  • Baby Blanket/Small Dog/Portly Cat: 24″ X 36” (side-eye to Kit Kat)

Notes

  • This kit is a Special Order, and it may take up to 2 weeks for us to receive it. The colour combinations listed are the ones on offer from the company, but if you would like to create your own combination we are happy to ask them and see if we can make that work. 

Combining Colours

The sample blanket is done in: A: Sunny (yellow), B: Mochi (off white), C: Fondant (pink), D: Mushroom (beige). To help you chose a balanced colour palette, the sample blanket’s colours are distributed like this:

  • Colour A is your darkest colour, it requires 1 (2, 3, 5)skeins
  • Colour B is your lightest colour, it requires  1 (2, 2, 4) skeins
  • Colour C is your second lightest or a medium-light colour, it requires 1, (2, 2, 4) skeins
  • Colour D is your second darkest colour or a medium-dark colour, it requires 1, (1, 2, 3) hanks.

To check on the balance of lightness or darkness in your palette you can take a digital picture of them and use your camera’s editing settings and change the picture it to black & white or monochrome. You’ll get a good idea of how much contrast, or lack-thereof, is in your colour combo!

UPDATE Lockdown

Okey-dokey, so the city of Toronto is going back into a ‘Lockdown’ phase or ‘grey zone’ starting Monday November 23rd. That’s ok, we’ve already done this, we’ve all got it down, right?!

What this means for the store:

  • We will still be open for in-store shopping THIS WEEKEND, Saturday & Sunday Nov 21 & 22.
  • Starting Monday Nov 23rd, we will be closed for in-store shopping.
  • We’ll still be open for curbside pick-up, shipping, and starting Monday Nov 23rd we will be offering same day delivery!
  • Our hours will not change, we will still be here Monday to Sunday from 11am to 6pm (subject to review and flexibility).

A Few Insights From The Last Lockdown

From experience, I can say that we are happy to answer your questions by email, but communication is about a million times easier, faster and more satisfying for both parties if you call us during store hours – this especially applies to choosing projects (you know all those questions I ask you when you come into the store? It’s takes minutes to assess your needs in-person).

I don’t really know how we are going to help you with your knitting problems … you might have to drop your project off for some outpatient surgery and pick it up again later. I’ll play this by ear on a case-by-case basis. The same thing goes for virtual video consultations.

For the time being we will NOT be teaching over zoom, but I will start working on some education oriented blog posts (especially for beginners, I know you need the most support) and if I find the time I may even delve into video.

Conclusion

  1. We will soon be closed for in-store shopping, but we will still be here to serve and help you! We are not going away!
  2. You’ll be able to get your purchases in a number of different ways: by curbside pick-up, shipping (Canada Post), and soon same day delivery!
  3. We’re flexible and adaptive and will figure things out as we go.

P.S.

Finally, I just want to say that COVID doesn’t have to be a curse, it is an excellent opportunity to connect with yourself. When things start to get to you, stop, let yourself process the experience, and make a list of all the things you are grateful for. Practicing gratitude is the gateway to joy (it’s true, Brene Brown studied it for 12 years).  It is not happiness that makes us grateful, but gratefulness that makes us happy.

PRE-ORDER New Books from PomPom

Ready, Set, Raglan by Pompom Press

Pre-Order your copy of Making Marls and it will be shipped or be available for pick-up on or before December 10, 2020!

Ready, Set, Raglan is a great book for newish knitters who want to take their skills to the next level and make sweaters. It’s the follow-up to Pompom Press’ beginner book Knit How (see below), taking the straightforward raglan-sleeve pullover (the kind of sweater with diagonal seams at the sleeves) as a blank canvas and walks you through all the ways to make it your own. They offer blueprints for 8 distinct raglans and coach you through choosing perfect-for-you necklines, hemlines, ribbing, stitch textures, and fancy raglan increases. And, of course, they show you how to create jaw-dropping colour combinations.

Their raglans sweaters are designed to empower improving knitters with customisation skills, but also to free advanced knitters to fly through stressless shapes, easy customisations, and the joys of colourplay. For the truly adventurous, they even provide a formula to design your own raglan! Let’s all get out our sketchbooks and dream together.

Making Marls by Cecelia Campochiaro

Pre-Order your copy of Making Marls and it will be shipped or be available for pick-up on or before December 10, 2020!

Making Marls is a ground-breaking, lushly illustrated, and beautifully made book about multi-strand hand-knitting and the creation of marled fabrics. The technique is as simple as knitting multiple strands of yarn together. With this approach, any knitter can invent a vast number of textured and coloured fabrics. As with her first book, Sequence Knitting, author Cecelia Campochiaro takes a systematic look at a subject that has been hiding in plain sight for centuries. In Making Marls, the word “sequence” is used to describe the order of marl stripes, rather than the stitch sequences in Sequence Knitting. There are common-strand sequences, bridging sequences, sequences from gradient sets, complex sequences, and even improvisational sequences. The book can be approached on three levels: 1. A reference book about multi-strand hand-knitting, 2. a pattern book with over thirty “recipes” , 3. a source book for designers and knitters who want to work with many colours.

Regardless of whether one is new to knitting or a seasoned expert, this book will delight and inspire. Published in 2020.

Knitting Comfortably by Carson Demers

Pre-Order your copy and it will be shipped or be available for pick-up on or before December 10, 2020!

Imagine being told you have to stop knitting because of discomfort in your hands, arms, neck, or back. Imagine the sense of frustration and the longing to get the needles back in your hands. Imagine the lingering doubt you might have when you can pick them up again: “What was I doing wrong after all these years of knitting?” “Will I get hurt again?” “Will I have to stop knitting forever to make this pain go away?” Maybe you’d like to be a faster, more efficient knitter, or a knitter who produces more projects, but you’re not sure what’s getting in the way.

This book will help you understand the ergonomics of knitting so you can improve your safety, efficiency, and productivity in knitting. You’ll learn to identify ergonomic risks that contribute to injury and reduce knitting efficiency. Throughout the book, you’ll be provided with activities and guidance to improve your knitting ergonomics so you can knit more confidently and comfortably. Through instruction in stretches, exercise, and self-care, you’ll also learn how to manage the discomfort common to knitters before it becomes an injury, and how to recognize when it’s time to seek help from a health-care professional.

NOTE: This book is only available through yarn stores and is not available on Amazon or Indigo.

The Wool

Icelandic wool has historically been crucial to the survival of the nation as it provided both warmth and protection throughout centuries of harsh weather. It is also quite unique compared to the wool of other sheep breeds. The inner fibres are fine, soft and highly insulating while the outer fibres are long, glossy and water repellent. Therefore products made of Icelandic wool are extremely durable, lightweight and breathable

The Manufacturer
Ístex Ltd. is the main wool manufacturer in Iceland, with over a century of wool tradition behind their products. They create wool blankets, with narrative threads that weave together a modern sensibility of style, the artistic inspiration of a dramatic landscape and the unique quality of Icelandic yarn.

NEW Fibre Company Amble!

Fibre Company Amble

The Fibre Company Amble is a soft, beautiful, and eco-friendly sock yarn! It’s super soft, squishy, and gorgeous to work with and wear. The composition is a springy 2ply fingering weight full of body. While it’s perfect for socks, it also makes great hats, mitts, shawls & wraps, sweaters – anything you want to wear against your skin. Plus, what really made me extra happy is that it’s made with environmentally friendly manufacturing processes and uses recycled nylon to further reduce its environmental footprint (read more below). 

  • 70% Easy-wash Merino wool, 20% Easy-wash alpaca, 10% recycled nylon (see below for details)
  • 100g/325m (355 yds)
  • Fingering Weight
  • 32 sts per 10 cm / 4 in
  • 2.5 mm/1.5 US needles
  • Machine wash on wool cycle or hand wash at 30C / 86F. Dry flat.
  • Made in Peru

All about the Yarn

When The Fibre Co. set out to design a sock yarn, they stayed true to their guiding principle of harnessing the beauty that nature provides in a way that is gentle on our planet. They waited until a recycled nylon and an alternative to the standard chlorine processed washable wools became available. The end result is a soft yet durable yarn from Merino wool and alpaca fibres processed with an eco-friendly, anti-shrinkage Easy-wash treatment. The recycled nylon adds strength and durability. The shades are borrowed from the successful palette in their Cumbria yarn with the cream and all heathers using a natural ecru Suri alpaca whilst the others use a natural brown Suri alpaca.

What does ‘Easy-wash’ mean and why do they use it?
‘Easy-wash’ is a trademarked name that refers to a process used to make the wool and alpaca fibres in Amble machine washable without shrinking. The Easy-wash method is chlorine-free and AOX-free, making it the best environmental choice for producing machine-washable wool. The wool and alpaca fibres are treated with eco-friendly oxidants to remove the scales that ordinarily cause wool and alpaca to shrink when washed by machine. The oxidants used are sourced in Germany and are certified under the REACH, Oeko-tex and ZDCH (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemical) standards. This means that the Easy-wash treatment does not create hazardous chemicals, which is not the case with most machine washable wools in today’s market.

Much of the available machine washable wool yarn is made with a chlorine treatment process that produces high levels of toxic Adsorbable Organohalogens, known as AOX. While yarns produced in this manner are not known to be toxic to the user, AOX used in the treatment end up in wastewater and have a detrimental impact on tributaries, wildlife, and fauna.

What is recycled nylon and why do they use it?
Nylon fibre is not easily biodegradable. However, it has strength qualities that give yarns and the socks made there from more durability. The recycled nylon used in Amble comes from leftover industrial waste of processing nylon, thereby diverting waste from landfills, and using fewer production resources like water and fossil fuels than virgin nylon.

One Sock Pattern

To go along with Amble, The Fibre Company has also come out with a universally sized pattern called One Sock, a classic top-down sock pattern to fit all feet. With lots of opportunities to customise the fit and design, this pattern comes with the ‘One Sock Guidebook’, a resource that walks makers through the process of knitting beautiful socks that fit. You can find the pattern HERE.

The pattern is written by Kate Atherly, one of the best knitting teachers I’ve ever come across. In my opinion, this pattern is a great deal for someone who is new to sock knitting. I know the pattern is supposed to be the main attraction, but I think the guidebook alone is well worth the cost of admission!

Size

  • Finished Foot Circumference: 12.5 (14: 15: 16.5: 18: 19: 20.5: 21.5: 23: 24: 25.5) cm (5 (5.5: 6: 6.5: 7: 7.5: 8: 8.5: 9: 9.5: 10) in)

Rye Light (freebie)

Rye Light is a great pattern that leverages a simple texture to make the most of a solid or semi-solid coloured yarn like Amble. It’s a great pattern for beginners, and it comes with it’s own instruction built into the pattern (the designers even wrote a How to Knit Socks Tutorial). It ranges from size Baby up to Adult Large, and best of all, it’s a free pattern.

Solvi

Amble also makes a great sweater yarn, especially for fair isle. The yarn has a lovely depth of colour, a heathered look which actually comes from the naturals colours of wool and alpaca blended together. It’s a springy two-ply yarn that soft to the touch (no itchies) and a pleasure to work with. I especially like the fair isle sweaters designed by Jennifer Steinglass, but it’ll be gorgeous in any suitable pattern, for adults and children alike.

Solvi starts at the neckline and is worked seamlessly from the top down, and in the round. Short rows shape the back and neckline of this sweater. The colourwork yoke is knit, then the body and sleeves are then separated- stitches for the sleeves are transferred to spare needles or waste yarn and underarm stitches are cast on. The body is worked on one circular needle and finished with a ribbed hem. Sleeve stitches are then transferred to knitting needles, the underarm stitches are picked up, and the sleeve is knit top to bottom, finishing with a long ribbed cuff.

Size

  • Finished bust: 36.25 (38.25, 40.75, 43.25, 45.5, 49.5, 52.25)(55, 57, 59, 61.5, 64.25, 67)” OR 91 (95.5, 102, 108, 113.5, 123.5, 131)(137.5, 142.5, 147.5, 153.5, 161, 167.5) cm.

NEW Halo Bundles & Swerve Shawl

Swerve

Adrienne just knit up this gorgeous SWERVE for us using one of the Fleece Artist/Handmaiden Halo Bundles. The shawl is a delicate combination of fingering weight merino alternated with a fine kid-mohair, making it light, feminine, but also interesting. The yarn bundles are dyed together, so you don’t have to worry about combing or matching your yarns, and they’re also very reasonably priced at $43.97 each. Plus, the pattern knits up on 5.5mm/US9 needles, so it won’t take *forever* to work up!

Materials

Fleece Artist/Handmaiden Halo Bundles

Fleece Artist-Handmaiden Halo bundles are combo of two yarns hand-dyed together. Fleece Artist Merino Slim fingering weight merino and Handmaiden Angel Hair fingering weight mohair join forces to create gorgeous textural combos scarf, wrap, shawl and sweater patterns. You can hold the two strands together at the same time (like Love Note by Tin Can Knits), or alternate yarns (like Birds of a Feather by Andrea Mowry). Because they are dyed together the colours always match – no guess work!

  • Yarn A: Handmaiden Angel Hair: 70% Mohair, 30% Nylon, 50g/400m
  • Yarn B: Fleece Artist Merino Slim: 100% Superwash Merino, 120g/400m
