Welcome to the May Shipment of the Kitterly Kit Club!


Do you live by the coast--any coast? We have Kit Club members from all over, and we love seeing the different states and cities on our shipping labels. (even countries!) This month’s project has a distinctly coastal theme, so even if you don’t live by one, we’re bringing it to you.

This month’s Kit Club:

Crochet provisional cast-on allows you to come back to your cast-on edge and easily pick of those stitches to join pieces or continue knitting. Garter tab often calls for a brief provisional cast-on, as well as some socks, sweater patterns and accessories. There are lots of patterns that call for a provisional cast-on and the crochet method is a favorite among the Kitterly staff.

In this tutorial we are going to walk you through how to position your hands and yarn to cast on, and how to pick up and ‘unzip’ your provisional cast-on edge.

Did you ever read classic romantic literature or watch period BBC series and fantasize about wandering the English fields like one of the heroes or heroines? The reality is that it would be chilly and damp in those fields, and you’d need some kind of shawl to keep you warm. Luckily we’ve got you covered for all your historical wandering needs with this month’s shipment:

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...

Ignoring the Rules of en(guage)ment Top Photo

How do you feel about rules? Some people want rules because they create structure and others don’t want them because they feel restricted by them.

Knitting doesn’t really have rules. Yeah, I know. Right now you might be churning with the need to say “But---!” or nodding your head and maybe feeling relieved. But it’s the honest truth.

So, how'd I do?

Kitterly Kit Club April Reveal - Opposite Day Cowl and Hat by Carina Spencer

The yarn for April’s Kit Club was discovered at Stitches West in Northern California by one of the Co-Founders of Kitterly. She fell hard for the bright vivid colors and had to get a few skeins to bring back and share. We all agreed it was something special, so all we had to do next was find the perfect pattern. For that we turned to new patterns from a long-time favorite.

One Hour Into The Oven Mittens

Last week I told you about four great projects from Vickie Howell exclusive to Kitterly. We made a big promise about these projects: you'll be able to finish them in just a handful of lunch hours.

With a claim like that I felt a demonstration would be useful, so you could see how long it really takes to make one of these projects. Starting off I wanted to see how far could I get in an hour.

What Kind of Knitter Are You Banner

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.

Vickie Howell Lunch Hour Knit Kits

We’re thrilled to debut Vickie Howell’s Lunch Hour Knit Kits, a set of four great projects exclusive to Kitterly! We were so excited when Vickie contacted us about working together on a project. While none of us had met Vickie we knew her from her numerous crafting endeavors. We’d seen her on DIY network’s Knitty Gritty, we’d come across her videos while looking up crafting ideas and techniques, we’d sold her books in the store and visited her blog. We were impressed not only with her wealth of knowledge, but with her eagerness for sharing it with the crafting community.

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?

Irish Girlie Knits St Patricks Day Post

Today we’re celebrating this Irish Holiday with the 100% Irish-American Carrie Maureen Sullivan of Irish Girlie Knits! When coming up with our Saint Patrick's day newsletter we couldn't think of a better designer to feature. Carrie's patterns are frequently inspired by her Irish heritage. Her great-grandparents on both sides were from Ireland. She grew up celebrating the holiday with her family, eating corned beef and cabbage, potatoes, lots of soda bread, and listening to toe tapping Irish music.

5 Interesting Color Names of Yarn

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.Read More

I love everything about this collection, from the great designs to the awe-inspiring black-on-black photography to the way it benefits our furry friends.

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?

Kitterly Circular needles tutorial

When it comes to circular needles, length does matter. On Kitterly we've taken care of figuring out the best needles for each project so that you don't have to do any work.

On the other hand, we know that you might already have some circular needles sitting at home that you want to use. In this post I’ll go over which length needles go best with which projects.
