The second installment of the Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide series is here, and going fast! Let’s take a peek inside.
Ann Shayne and Kaye Gardiner’s series of Field Guides are pocket-sized booklets focused on a particular theme or knitting technique. The first two featured musings on stripes and fair-isle knitting, respectively, but this third is all about yarn.
Specifically, Wild Yarns is about those beautiful skeins of hand-dyed yarn that can be unpredictable on the needles. How will those tempting colors play out in the fabric, and how best to make use of these special skeins?
Like the Field Guides before it, this third volume has essays from Ann and Kay and three patterns from knitwear designers they’ve brought on to address the Guide’s theme; this one showcases Kirsten Kapur, Diana Walla, and Sue McCain.
Look for the Mason-Dixon Knitting Field Guide No. 3 here at the shop, where you may well find some wild yarns, as well! See you there.
