KNITTING CAROLINA BEACH

Our pattern, Carolina Beach is so popular, (available as a free download on Ravelry), I thought I would create some different color combinations for you to try! All these combinations are created with Lino, a 100% linen fingering weight yarn from Spain. This is our original color combination. It is great with jeans! Indigo, light indigo and sand. This color combination has a more natural feel to it. It would look wonderful with linen colored pants , skirt or dress. This is a very flattering color combo. The old rose color on the right looks so pretty. Bronze, sand and dusty dusty rose. This version would be dressier. It would look wonderful with grey pants, and would easily transfer to eveni

THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SHAWL PINS

Shawl pins give you the opportunity to add the perfect finishing touch to your gorgeous knit or crochet shawls. In fact, I would say that shawl pins are to shawls as buttons are to cardigans. Jul designs shawl pins are the perfect finishing touch. Whether they have a delicate floral pattern, or a celtic inspired design, they are perfectly hand crafted, and so graceful. What a beautiful Mother's Day present these would make! #JulDesigns #Shawl #pin #knit #crochet #TheNobleTHread #Wilmington

KNITTING THE DOODLER BY STEPHEN WEST

After finishing Carolina Beach, I started working on a Doodler of my own. The Doodler is a fantastic pattern by Stephen West. As with all Stephen West patterns, the knitting is incredibly entertaining. The construction is just fascinating! This i also a class we are teaching this month. With this shawl you learn short rows, cable, knitted i-cords and chevrons! This Doodler is even more special to me as I am testing my soon to be available collection of hand dyed gradients! These deeply saturated gradients will be exclusive to the shop, but more on this later... I just love the gradient in this shawl. I will post more pictures of my Doodler as I make progress on it, and will soon be posting p

ARTISAN YARN BOWLS AND MUGS AT THE NOBLE THREAD

I love yarn bowls in general. I love them because they are so practical and useful when knitting or crocheting, keeping my yarn under control so that I do not have to chase it across the room. I also love them because they are so pretty. I love their roundness and the beautiful volute that graces them. I love these yarn bowls even more because they have polka dots, and they have the cutest matching mugs. I love them because they come in a range of fun colors. I love them because of their whimsical polka dots! I also love them because they are made with great attention to quality and detail right here in the US. The very talented Amanda of Pawley Studios is a wonderful potter from Kentucky, a
