impressionist podcast
Knitcircus dyers love coming up with new ways to dye yarn. Impressionist Gradients combine the fun of Speckled Handpaints and Gradient cakes into one! You get the excitement of pops of different colors with each new stitch while the overall color shifts like a gradient. Show off a simple shape the like Aeque cowl shown in Imaginary Best Friend, the most popular gradient. Browse the Impressionist Colorways gallery on the website or visit the brick-and-mortar store in Wisconsin to pet the yarns in person.
Have you ever had to frog because you forgot a step several rows back? Or lost your spot because you dropped your magnet board or lost track with your highlighter tape? Instead of wrestling with paper, use theknitCompanion app. It keeps you on track so you can knit more and frog less. knitCompanion works withALL your patterns and is available for apple, android and kindle fire devices.
