Blog Tour Stop: WEBS Yarn Store Blog

Today the HK blog tour is rolling over to the WEBS Yarn Store Blog to talk more about Emma Welford‘s design Just Beachy, knit up in their Valley Yarns Goshen!

Just Beachy in Valley Yarns Goshen

Goshen is a great option for this top! It’s a super soft worsted weight cotton that knits up quick and wears great for warm weather. And it comes in a ton of amazing colors! So whether you pick two very different colors for Just Beachy, two close colors, or just knit the whole thing in one color (I can’t wait to see a one color WIP pop up!), Goshen has all the options!

Beautiful winding cables and super contrasting color side panels really pop!

Congrats Jamie!

You are going to have two beautiful skeins of Unplanned Peacock in Grass headed your way soon!

Today’s blog tour stop heads to indie dyer Kate of Knits in Class! Her yarn, as seen here in her etsy shop, has been a staple in every Holla Knits collection.

Kate always has fantastic colorways, and Grass, as seen in Teresa Gregorio’s Lady Bat, is one of them! Not to mention that this is one of Kate’s new yarns! Her Knits in Class Luxe DK is a pretty dreamy blend of alpaca, merino, and silk, and comes in HUGE skeins!

I loved being able to show off Teresa’s Lady Bat in two such different fibers. This single ply wool makes Lady Bat a colder weather knit, while showing it in cotton makes it perfect for summer. One sweater two ways!

Subscriber Exclusive Giveaway

Kate has super generously offered up a skein of her Knits in Class Luxe DK – that is a HUGE 625 yard skein! Pretty amazing, right? Get over to Kate’s blog and leave a comment for your chance to win.

Really beautiful and complicated butterfly-like stitch pattern!

Knitters have started swatching for Nachtfalter on our Holla Knits Ravelry Group, and I’m so jealous! I absolutely loved Stefanie’s butterfly stitch. It was hard and fun! Gosh. I’m living vicariously through you guys on this one!

Does that butterfly stitch pattern look like too much of a challenge for you? Never fear! Stefanie took it upon herself to work up a crazy thorough tutorial for the stitch over on her blog. It’s SPECTACULAR! I wish I had it while I was knitting up the sample!
