Summer Knitalong: Home and Away – Share your knits

September 30, 2015

The Summer knitalong had an incredible energy…so many folks joined in knitting a pattern from Hannah Fettig’s most recent book Home and Away…and they were ALL lovely. It seemed that out of all the patterns, the Lesley pullover was the most knit, with the most unique being that from Whitney @whit_knits who handspun the yarn for her Lesley. I think a close second was the Boothbay cardigan, with another unique take from @garmenthouse, who added a purl stitch here and there to create a beautiful stitch pattern.

It was wonderful to see everyone’s such positive response to this beautiful collection of patterns and come away with a new hand knit for Fall. I just finished my own Georgetown this past week and it may just be my new favorite sweater, it’s so versatile and the Quince and Co Owl I knit it with was just the blended tweedy-type goodness I longed for in my wardrobe.

And for those of you still finishing your projects or wanting to knit something from Home and Away…Quince and Co has a “Knitbot Knitalong” starting tomorrow…so keep your eye on their Instagram @quinceandco and blog for more info!

Tomorrow we start Fall Woolful Knitalong…so make sure to join along as we knit a pattern (of your choice) from Cecelia Campochiaro’s new book Sequence Knitting. More info to come this week on our picks, suggested yarns and such.

    It’s just fascinating to hear about all of these fiber journeys . Their past experiences are equally fascinating.
