A Homespun House!

My Sister Knits is the first in the country to carry A Homespun House yarn!

This yarn comes to us from Berlin, Germany!  Molly, who is an American living in Berlin with her husband and young children, is the creative force and dyer of this enticing yarn.

Molly has been knitting most of her life and was inspired by her grandmother who was a leading member of her crafting community.  Molly’s grandmother, along with two friends, established a business selling hand-crafted gifts that was the original Homespun House!

This yarn, in eye-catching colors, is exactly right for spring projects!  Of course the fingering weight, with its SW Merino/nylon blend, makes fun socks but we have a few other patterns for you to consider in both fingering and DK weights:

A shawl

Carol has just finished Lovella, designed by Ambah O’Brien and it’s on display in the shop.  Be one of the first to make this as it was just published in February!  This shawl uses two yarns for garter row stripes and incorporates a simple section of eyelet.  Worked with the DK yarn and size 7 needles, this can be finished in plenty of time to be a transitional piece as the weather becomes warmer!

 

A pullover for any size

We love tincanknits patterns for their versatility, easy to follow directions, and helpful tutorials!  Flax Light, a free pattern, would be adorable using A Homespun House fingering weight yarn.  See our shop sample to fully appreciate the garter stitch sleeve details on a baby sized sweater.  This pattern is sized from newborn to adult 4XL.

A brand new pattern from Joji Locatelli

Joji Locatelli’s new collection, Interpretations Volume 5, is out this month and her Glacier Tunic is a contender for this yarn!  Using fingering weight, this tunic can be knit to any length, from a short top to a dress.  It promises to be a fun knit with intriguing construction.

A little girl’s dress

We envision this dress being loved by a little one!  The pattern is Caesia, designed by Georgie Nicolson, and uses DK weight and sizes 3 and 6 needles. There are 422 Ravelry projects of this dress, indicating that it’s a great pattern and well written!  Included are detailed instructions for working the yoke increases which indicates Georgie’s thoughtfulness as a designer.  This is a top-down, seamless pattern with a decorative textured yoke for size newborn to 12 years.

A baby cardigan

This simply designed garter stitch cardigan will show off Molly’s yarn beautifully!  The pattern is playtime by Lori Versaci, uses fingering weight yarn, and comes in sizes 3 months to 18 months.  There are design options for a solid, color blocked, or a striped yoke.

Our customers are the only ones in the US able to buy this yarn from a yarn shop so hurry in to get the best choice of colorways!  You’ll be glad you did!
