Coastal Yarn is the newest yarn innovation from Elemental Affects Yarn. I am really pleased that I was invited to be one of the first designers who got their hands on this yarn. Both my knitter, Handiworks, Ltd, and I both love this yarn (although she gets to work with it more than I do).
Coastal Yarn Review
I have written a review of Coastal Yarn which is informational. Jill Wolcott Knits has two designs coming out April 2, and more in the pipeline. Whenever Jeane deCoster asks me what yarn I want, I said wool and linen. I never thought about also adding silk. Whoo hoo. What should my next request be?
Latin Quarter Tank
For now, here are lots of photos, links to the Latin Quarter Tank pattern (early release; it may not be perfect yet and is priced accordingly), and a link to the review I wrote.
Ninth Ward Cosy
Did you know that photos can be color corrected and other touches made? I hire KnitEcoChic who is much more skilled than me to do that. These photos haven’t been touched up yet.
I will be sending the pattern to the Tech Editor and will make it available soon. If you look at the back you can see that it is longer because there are a series of German short rows. It is a feature I really appreciate as I am always chasing cowls that have no shaping.
Coastal Yarn Photo Shoot
It was briefly above 50 degrees (high) on the day we did this back yard photo shoot. If you see goose flesh, that’s why. Look at my lower foot in this one (encased in a wool sock).
I got these cool washed out jeans recently. Mitch thinks they are a throwback to the 70s, but I thought they were perfect with this pair. The Latin Quarter Tank is in Bonnie Blue and Ninth Ward Cosy is in Sky Blue.
