A new issue of Amirisu is here!
Amirisu is a knitting magazine based in Japan, each issue filled with articles, interviews, and patterns from designers all over the world.
This issue features designs by Fiona Alice, Kate Gagnon Osborn, Sari Nordlund, Eri Shimizu, Dianna Walla, and more.
I spotted some familiar fibers in this issue – Kelbourne Woolens Andorra in a textured lace shawl, and Brooklyn Tweed Dapple in a feature on new yarns to try. Happy to report that we have plenty of both in stock, and that you can now make an appointment for in-store shopping to see them in person!
There’s intriguing reading material in this issue of Amirisu, too – a fiber lover’s travel guide to Okinawa, with essays about the textile traditions there.
Amirisu is $24, and available for local pickup or shipping via our online order form, or you can schedule an appointment to shop in person!
Laine Magazine is back with their 11th issue!
Laine Magazine is a publication out of Finland, a knitting and lifestyle magazine with a love of natural fibers as its focus, and a reputation for beautiful designs and tantalizing photography.
Issue 11 features patterns from an amazing group of designers, the likes of Gudrun Johnston, Paula Pereira, Stephen West, Eri Shimizu, and more.
Beyond the patterns, there are seasonal recipes and plenty of good reading – I’m particularly excited to read Jeanette Sloan’s interview with Diane Ivey, the dyer behind Lady Dye Yarns. We’re proud to have her Superwash Fingering and SW Merino DK on our shelves here at the shop.
Laine No. 10 is $30 each – order online for local pickup or shipping! We also have Laine No. 8 and No. 10 in stock, and Laine’s most recent books, Fair Isle Weekend, Strands of Joy, and 52 Weeks of Shawls.
