Join us for World Wide Knit in Public Day Saturday, June 8th!

World Wide Knit In Public Day!
Join us this Saturday, June 8th for an annual event that encourages knitters around the world to come together and knit in public. The goal is to promote the craft of knitting by building communities and raising awareness about the artistry and enjoyment of knitting. Knitters of all skill levels gather in parks, coffee shops, libraries, and other public spaces to work on their knitting projects. Knitters and crocheters can meet fellow enthusiasts, share their love for the craft, exchange ideas and techniques, and showcase their creations. 

Help us celebrate the joy of knitting and crocheting in our outdoor garden from 11am - 5pm. Grab a folding or portable chair, a beverage of your choice and your work in progress and join us as we relax, knit, and crochet with a beautiful view of the mountains. 
This month we are embracing the summer’s warmth and light with the elegance of Creative Linen from Rowan.

Creative Linen is a blend of 50% linen and 50% cotton which is milled and dyed in Peru. Its linen/cotton combination results in projects that are durable because of the linen but still soft and drapey because of the cotton. The yarn is also known for its crisp stitch definition.

Creative Linen is a beautiful yarn to work with and wear as the temperatures heat up. It is a perfect yarn choice for knitting or crocheting tanks, tees, coverups, light-weight sweaters, scarves, shawls, and totes.
Mode at Rowan’s booklet Summer Accessories – 4 Projects by Martin Storey and Quail Studio is now back in stock. It includes two knitting and two crochet projects which use Rowan Creative Linen.
Last summer, Caroline crocheted Arta as a shop sample, and it quickly became a customer favorite. This project uses 3 skeins of Creative Linen. The color shown above is Straw.
Another tote, perfect for the beach or city, is Deia.  This is a slightly larger bag and is crocheted using 4 skeins of Creative Linen. The color in the photo is Natural.
Pollensa is a beautiful coverup which would also be perfect at the beach or in the city. This mesh oversized tunic is knit and then seamed which creates a lovely detail on the sides and sleeves. The color in the photo is Cloud.
The final project in Summer Accessories – 4 Projects is Santanyi by Martin Storey. This is an elegant but much simpler project for those wanting to try lace knitting.  It features a 12 row repeat that forms the pattern. The color of Creative Linen in the photo is also Cloud.
Another project that can be knit using Creative Linen is Gregoria Fibers' Margaux Top. (I love the name!) This gorgeous top is worked in-the-round from the bottom up.
One more project that is adorable in Creative Linen is Corran Cardigan by Rebecca Clow. The Corran Cardigan is an all-over lace cardigan, knit from the bottom up with drop shoulders. There are two neckline options: round and V-neck and two sleeve lengths. This pattern can be knit in a wide variety of fibers including Line and Duo from Sandnes Garn, Cotton Cashmere and Denim Revive from Rowan and Luma from the Fibre Co.
