Rosy Green Wool:
Rosy Green Wool's newest release of Limited Edition colors are inspired by the rainforest. Meet (L to R): Fern Forest, Chameleon Green, and Haze. They are absolutely stunning: all 3 are right up my alley (esp. Haze, which is a mostly pale grey with a hint of mint green: swoon). And I can't help but think the 3 of them together would make the most amazing Drachenfels by Melanie Berg:Only a few days left:
I'm thrilled to have the limited-edition colors in stock for you on the Cheeky Merino Joy base. Did I sell out before you could snap some up? Drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll special order them for you. Cheeky Merino Joy has a huge library of pattern support if you need inspiration. Check out these patterns published in the last month!

Knitters Against Malaria is an international initiative with whom we are proud to partner. And, speaking of Rosy Green Wool and Melanie Berg - this is a project they initiated. Malaria is preventable, and treatable, yet continues to be a problem. Every two minutes a child dies of Malaria, most of them in Africa. Mosquitoes are most active at night so sleeping under a bed net treated with insecticides can drastically reduce infections. A net only costs $2-3 and lasts up to four years. We knitters can save lives. Please help us by donating to the Against Malaria Foundation by January 31, 2019. O-Wool donated $200 (100 nets!). Please join me!
Jessica Gore's Common Ground sweater in O-Wash Sport
features texture for days, beautiful proportions, and thoughtful details. Find it, and a handful of other gorgeous designs, in the most recent issue of Making Stories.
The Gabi Tunic, by Sue Peterson, is an over-sized tunic with dropped sleeves. The marled look comes from holding O-Wash Sport with a fingering weight yarn... O-Wash Fingering would pair well! The cowl is knit separately with two different stitch options, a ribbed stitch or brioche stitch.
This cowl uses cables and a herringbone lace to capture the moment when the nets are hauled in full of fresh fish. Graeme Knowles-Miller's design, Morning Catch Cowl, is part of Knotions, January 2019. O-Wool Classic Worsted is warm, have a great color palette, and the perfect stitch definition for a lovely design like this.
That's all for now! Stay warm and have fun crafting.
All the best,
