The Natural Home Collection is Live!

I'm so excited to share that my Natural Home Collection is now live on Ravelry! I combined my love of nature with my passion for making, and the result is this collection. I'm happy with how it all came together!

Included in the collection are three different patterns. The Felted Lopi Bowls are made with Hinterland Cabin, a lopi yarn made from Navajo-Churro yarn. I adore this yarn, which I've written about before, and it felts so beautifully. This Canadian yarn is available in the US from the Woolful Mercantile.

The Linen Placemats are made with Quince & Co's Kestrel, a chainette/ribbon linen yarn that's incredibly unique. Kestrel has so many beautiful and subtle colors, you'll be sure to find a hue that suits your home.

The Hemp Scrubbies are a wonderful way to use this tough yet lovely fiber. The yarn is made by Darn Good Yarn's Three-ply Hemp, made from pesticide-free hemp that's spun by a co-op in Nepal. The symmetrical texture and worsted weight make for a scrubby that's as aesthetically pleasing as it is useful (plus you can wash and dry it in the machine).

I hope you enjoy these patterns!

Testing Call! Linen Placemats for Spring

Calling all test knitters! The swatch shown above is for a rectangular placemat pattern, which uses Quince & Co's Kestrel held double. The resulting fabric is dense yet soft, and completely machine washable! I put a lot of thought and care into gauge, selvedges, and Bo and CO options to give the placemats a clean, finished look.

These placemats are truly lovely, adding a light and fresh look to your spring table. The pattern is part of my Natural Home collection, and the placemats use 100% organic linen sourced by an American company.

If you'd like to be a test knitter for these placemats, contact me here or check out my Ravelry group to sign up! Happy knitting!
