Hot Right Now - May
by Michelle Enerson
Every month Michelle scours Ravelry for what's "hot right now". Take a look at this month's picks and the yarns she suggests.
Shannon Squire’s Socks for Busy B’s 5 – Knitted Wit Sock (try Herstory!)
This is our first collection in the Hot Right Now and it was just released but Shannon Squire has done it again with some seriously fun sock patterns!
Shannon is close friends with the owner of Knitted Wit Lorajean Kelley and together they create some seriously fun knits. Summer of socks is a tradition of Knitted Wit yarn and Shannon’s sock patterns for a summer full of fun. If you have any interest in making socks you definitely need to check this out.
Shannon and Lorajean were planning a trip to String Theory before everything came to a screeching halt so this is a great way to join in on the fun with some great women String Theory supports and believes in.
Bukett by Linnea Ornstein – Nebula and Ewe So Sporty
This shawl is the perfect way to show off a color-changing yarn like Nebula in its short row leaves. Paired with a solid sport weight like Ewe So Sporty you’ll have an eye-catching spring shawl to keep your fingers busy and before you know it your shoulders warm.
Plover Cardigan by Jacqueline Cieslak – Woolfolk Tynd
I recently knit one of Jacqueline’s sweater patterns and wore it the other day for the first time. It was the perfect quick knit but even better is was the perfect throw over sweater for my current wardrobe. This new design is certain to be the same easy make, easy wear pattern of my dreams. Out of Woolfolk it would be the coziest dream of a wardrobe staple.
Venezia Shawl by Joji Locatelli – Migration Yarn fingering
Did you hear Linda has been back at the dye pots?! She’s been cooking up some gorgeous spring palettes that would be the perfect spring cast on. Joji recently released this gorgeous new one skein shawl that would SING out of MigrationTraveler Sock.
