Party On All The Needles

Posted by Melanie Dilworth in Black Trillium, hand dyed yarn, knitting, new colors

In recent years, especially as I design more and concentrate a lot of my knitting time on shop samples, I have gotten really bad at keeping up my personal Ravelry project page.  This fall, I decided to make an effort to knit more for myself and my family so that I can revisit why knitting was fun enough for me to want to start a knitting-yarn focused business.  I've been churning out wee hats, stash busting cowls, and scrap yarn socks.

Just before fall weather hit here in Oregon (with all the rain and gloom that usually entails) I went on a weaving-in-ends spree that was a bit overdue.  Included in that pile was a long-finished work project in our Merino & Silk single fingering weight called Prime.  This shawl is another fun little piece from Joji Locatelli called Party on My Needles, and I'm sure this pattern is familiar to most of you.  I knit mine with our newest speckle, Dia de los Muertos, and leftovers from Sunlit Glass samples in Robin's Egg & Graphene.

If you follow our business Instagram account (or Twitter) you can see some of the other things I've been working away on.  I'm not strictly business when it comes to IG, sharing pics of our silly family dog and my kiddos, as well as some snaps of our home garden adventures and little trips we take on the weekends.  I love how visual IG is and how great it is that you can upload directly from there to your Rav profile!  Recently I've been arranging gradient yarn colors by color family or thematically just for fun.

So what gets in your fall knitting pile? Feel free to leave comments below or share in our Ravelry group!
