In this new issue of Knittyspin, Lynne Vogel has a new pattern called Calertne. Throughout her career she credits Sandy Sitzman as being big influential in her growth as a spinner and dyer. This project is their latest collaboration.

Calertne

 

On her blog Lynne dishes about the original pair of these fab fingerless gloves and how they were designed on the needles by her spinning and dyeing Yoda, Sandy Sitzman. The two of them re-engineered the pattern for Knittyspin together.

Lynne has just released 3 new patterns, check them out on Ravelry.

 

In my own spinning news:

My chunky cowl is in the swatching stage. Here’s a snap of the yarn, with a US quarter for scale.

Chubby, chubby yarn

I dug through my fiber stashing memory and remember that this Targhee came from Sweet Grass Wool in Montanta, they sell yarn and fiber from Montana raised sheep.

What are you spinning this week?

    I’m spinning a custom dyed Corriedale from FibreArtemis (Etsy) in New Zealand for my Hexagon sweater. It’s blues to greens to yellows in lumpy, live singles on a 4.5 mm needle. No one should be allowed to have this much fun.

    I’d say I’m spinning my wheels, but I don’t have a spinning wheel. I love your chubby yarn. It looks perfect and it isn’t just my love for the color!
