Kitterly Kit Club - October Reveal

Oct 24, 2016 11:54:05 PM



Welcome to the October Shipment of the Kitterly Kit Club!

 

Normally I don’t like the longer nights that come with fall, but for some reason this year is different. These dark chilly nights seem like a great time to curl up with a hot drink and a project in your lap in front of a good movie or a warm fire (or both if you’re lucky).

 

Here’s your October project to give you something fun to do during these long nights.

What Kind Of Knitter Are You?

Apr 21, 2016 1:00:08 PM

 What Kind Of Knitter Are You?

 

What kind of knitter are you?


In the creative world of crafting, I hate to think of anyone feeling restricted into being a certain "type" of anything, yet, it's impossible to ignore that we all have our tastes, our habits, and our obsessions, even if they only last for a few hours. Do you find yourself consistently drawn to a certain type of project? Do you only want to knit using small needles? Do you crave a finished project or do you wish the stockinette would just go on forever?


Here's a short and incomplete list of different knitters I have both met and been over the years.

Have you worked with cotton yarn?

Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton


I love wool and animal fibers. But right now it’s 75 degrees in Los Angeles and cotton has a lot of appeal. I'm sorry, I know it's still cold in parts of the states but it'll warm up there too. I don’t know about you, but I don’t like having wool in my lap on a hot day.


Have you worked with cotton yarn?

5 Fun Color Names (And Yarns!)

5 Fun Color Names

 


Working in the yarn store for years I got used to the wide variety of names that any particular color could be given. There is a certain blunt simplicity to a yarn with a color name like “Black”, “Red” or “Blue” that I can appreciate. 


That said, they aren’t the most exciting names and sometimes a more creative color name can be a delightful discovery. With that in mind, I took a tour around our shelves of yarn and spotted 5 great yarns with fun color names. Here they are, presented in no particular order.

Life After Scarves

Mar 4, 2016 1:57:00 PM

Life After Scarves


The first thing most knitters make is a scarf. They're great beginner projects. You cast on a reasonable number of stitches and just keep knitting with the goal of not adding or removing stitches. When you’re done you have an accessory that is even useful (occasionally) in Southern California. 


But, after you’ve done a scarf (or ten) and want to learn something new, what next?

When the Kitterly Team sat down to talk about what we wanted to include in our Kit Club shipments we knew Madelinetosh Unicorn Tails were a must. The colors of Madelinetosh are so inspring that we decided to create an ombre effect with the varigated and the solid hues. Stripe your Fancy by Alex Tinsley quickly became the project of choice and we think the yarn and pattern are a match made in heaven!

Kitterly Helpful Hints: Adding Fringe

Aug 14, 2015 7:02:09 PM

We just love little extras, like pom poms or fringe! With our first kit club subscription we sent enough yarn to start and complete the Rivulet by Tin Can Knits

This shawl is simple yet intriguing with the use of knit and purl stitches to create a pattern that mimicks moving water. The fringe adds a bit of drama and helps with the illusion of a rushing river. Adding fringe to a project isn't difficult but we want every project to be a stress free as possible; It's the Kitterly way after all.

Introducing the Mermaid Scarf

Jul 2, 2015 1:58:43 PM

close up mermaid scarf


The new Mermaid Scarf exclusive pattern from Kitterly.com was designed to be fun, quick and easy. Since it's garter stitch knit using size 13 needles a fast, dedicated knitter with a free day could easily finish it without losing sleep. Those more sedate paced knitters with a cramped schedule should still be able to finish it in a matter of days as long as they keep picking it up during free moments.

Macaron Slouch and KAL

Jun 4, 2015 1:14:25 PM


I have a love affair with all things French. France and I met in 2002, and our connection has only gotten deeper over the years. I love the language, even though I can’t speak it at all, I love their culture, their art, their architecture, their music (I’m a pianist and my favorite composure is Debussy), their fashion, their cities, and most importantly, their food and amazing pastries! The bread, the bread, the bread!

Alana Dakos - Cabled Leaf Pullover

Mar 9, 2015 4:53:54 PM

Our focus with Kitterly is creating a great experience for our customers from the moment they come to our site clear through casting off and showing off their new finished project. For that reason, we knew that Alana Dakos from Never Not Knitting would be a perfect match!

 

 

You might know her from her best selling books Coastal Knits with Hannah Fettig, Botanical Knits and Botanical Knits 2. Alana’s designs are inspired by nature, blending rich color with cabling to create delicate leaf motifs. Each design is a knitters dream with clear instructions and creative construction. I admit to being a perfectionist to a fault and the attention Alana pays to each detail until the last stitch is bound off which is something I appreciate immensely.

 

The "Cabled Leaf Pullover" is her exclusive design with Kitterly, and we are so excited to have the opportunity to present it to you!
