In preparing for the 2019 Club, we spent some time reflecting on our goals and what we’ve achieved so far. Our clubs are usually for the enthusiast knitter, someone who wants a challenge perhaps or a sense of momentum for their year.
Swatches lie! One of the most common stories I hear, and one I've experienced myself, is that despite getting the right gauge on the swatch the sweater turned out unexpectedly huge or tiny. It's nearly impossible to control all of the variables that might affect the gauge in the swatch vs the finished garment but there are certainly some things you can do to maximise the honesty of your swatches.
We recently added Julie Asselin's Nurtured to the store. Looking for ideas of what to do with this lovely, rustic but luxurious, worsted weight? Here are some of our favourite patterns featuring Nurtured that show how well it works for both colourwork and texture.
