Nua, Sweaters, and Travelling BlackSheep
It's a Nua Kind of Season
Have you felt the fabulous Stolen Stitches Nua? Developed by Stolen Stitches, Carol Feller, and Fyberspates, this Merino, Yak, and Linen yarn is delightful to knit with and continues to soften as you wear it thanks to that touch of linen. This luscious, soft yarn is one of Kelli and Tina's favorites. Tina is even using it for one of her sweaters on the Boxwood Cardigan Sweateralong!
If you haven't tried Nua before, now is a great time to play with it. Knit a sweater like Tina or try Kelli's Osage Shawl for something fun and soothing.
Join us for a Sweater Knit-along!
Here is my Boxwood Cardigan so far. I'm really loving the Studio Donegal Soft, but this photo sure doesn't show the color well. Tina is making TWO Boxwood Cardigans. One of them in Nua and one in Soft Donegal. You can still join us. The pattern is available from BlackSheep Fiber Emporium or Ravelry. I've been adding videos for the sweater to our Facebook page and YouTube channel, you can check them out here: YouTube channel or Facebook page. Make sure you subscribe to the channel so you don't miss Kelli's tips! If we're lucky maybe Tina will share some of her tips too.
