Hannah Fettig’s Home and Away Trunk Show is Here!

Home and Away, Hannah Fettig’s collection from her book of the same title, is with us through December 21st!

This collection consists of pieces with simple lines, nothing fancy!  They are wardrobe essentials meant for everyday use.  Hannah used Quince & Co’s yarn which is sourced and spun here in the U.S.  Their color palette is subdued and their yarns are durable yet soft, perfect for garments that will be worn over and over!

There is a hat that can be made in 5 sizes with directions for Bulky, Worsted and DK weight yarn!

Then there are the sweaters!  Cardigans, pullovers, and a vest!  The amazing thing about the sweaters is that each one can be constructed in two ways!  You may choose to make a top-down raglan sleeved sweater or a bottom-up seamed sweater with set in sleeves.  Hannah wrote patterns for all of us!

The sweaters and vest are designed with worsted, DK, and fingering weight yarn; again, something for everyone!

The fits vary from the close fitting Lesley pullover to the loose and comfortable fit of cardigans Georgetown and Boothbay.  The Moto Jacket is short while Calligraphy is a long cardigan.

Hannah put careful thought into this collection, designing for extensive knitting preferences!

We also have copies of the Home & Away book.  It is filled with gorgeous photographs and well written patterns. There are also helpful articles on gauge, choosing a size, sweater construction, understanding a knitting pattern, substituting yarn, knitting in the round, button bands and buttonholes, and finishing! 

We encourage you to come into the shop to see these Home and Away samples for yourself.  It’s always fun to check out a trunk show with multiple designs by one designer.  It helps you to find designers you like!

We also are happy to help you substitute yarns for any project.  It’s easier than you think but there are few things to consider when substituting so please ask if you’re unsure!
