Holla Knits 2015 Subscription Sale!

The 2014 Holla Knits year is over! 2014 was the third year I’ve been doing Holla Knits, which I absolutely can’t believe, and I think every year has gotten better and better.

2015 is going to see some changes at Holla Knits! Collections are going to have slightly different focuses and their release dates are going to change. So you know what you expect, here is how 2015 is going to play out:

Special Collection – Warm Weather Accessories: Launch on May 18th

Summer Collection: Launch on June 15th

Accessories Collection: Launch on Sept 14th

Winter Collection: Launch on Oct 26th

As you can see, there is no more Spring or Fall mentions, so each garment collection will have a much more focused cold weather/hot weather focus. There will be two accessories collections released in 2015, one for warm weather and one for cold weather. Fun right? Just mixing it up!

Blog Tour Stop: Lion Brand Yarns at the HK Blog

We did it! We made it to the end of the HK Blog Tour for the Accessories Collection. It’s been a great three weeks of posts exploring all the yarn and patterns in this collection. Thanks so much for coming along for the ride!

Today we’re wrapping up the blog tour by staying right here and talking more about the Lion Brand Yarns Wool Ease Thick & Quick used for Patty Nance’s Foliage Cowl.

You can see that this sample is a little bigger than the sample I created out of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Bulky, because the LB Thick & Quick is a bigger yarn than the WotA Bulky. So if you’re looking for a big snuggly cowl, pick the Thick & Quick for sure. You won’t ever be cold again!

And not the pretty beads Patty used for her sample as well. These are optional and added as a finishing touch to the piece. Pretty fun!
