Podcast Crush: 90% Knitting

Image from http://fibernymph.com/
90% Knitting is one of the first podcasts I began watching before I started my very own podcast back in May 2011. It's still one of my favourite podcasts!

Lisa, our host is both engaging and inspiring in her crafting and to see the development of her own indie yarn business has been wonderful.

I urge you to give this podacst a watch!

Have a wonderful day... Sara x

Fashion Knitwear: Spring Summer 2015 Trends in Hand Knits and Colourways.


In our last post we discussed catwalk trends in colour, pattern and stitch. Today I wanted to discuss hand knits and colour combos.


I have already selected some patterns from Ravelry.com above... these I think typify the cook for the season. These are;

Exploration-station by Stephen West
3-color-cashmere-cowl by Joji Locatelli
Grande-muraille by Xiawei HU
Quicksilver by Melanie Berg
Stripes-gone-crazy by Atelier Alfa
Perhaps-perhaps by Melanie Berg

My designer for the season would be Stephen West of West Knits, who really knows how to put this look together!

Let's talk yarn colours for the season...

available at www.SarasTextureCrafts.com
I have chosen colours; cranberry, rose, sherbert lemon, cafe au lait, the med, coral, pewter, turquoise, wedgewood, grape, blood orange, absinthe, denim, natural, pumpkin, shepherd's delight, starburst, Ilfracombe, Totnes and Labradorite.

Remember it's all about clever mixing and balancing pattern...

Happy Spring Summer Knitting!

Have a wonderful day... Sara x
