Churchmouse Yarns & Teas Quadrangle Wrap Pattern
This is a printed pattern on heavy card stock. No digital download option available. If you would like digital, visit Ravelry listing here Do you remember ‘Janie’s Grandmother’s Quadrangle Wrap’, a shop favorite from years past? Inspired by the easy wearability of the original, we’ve re-visioned the wrap at a finer gauge, changed the direction of the knitting, dropped the back neckline to sit nicely on the shoulders, and finessed the front edges with small I-cord. Wear it a little differently every day! Pattern includes a detailed tutorial on grafting in garter stitch for a seamless, invisible join.

Churchmouse Yarns & Teas Sideways Tee Pattern
This is a printed pattern on heavy card stock. No digital download option available. If you would like digital, visit Ravelry listing here This deceptively simple top is cleverly knit from the center out to each side, rather than from top to bottom or vice versa. A modern pivot to a familiar style! A tapered shape allows for plenty of ease at the bust, while providing a relaxed and flattering bottom edge at hip length. For a sleek drapey Sideways Tee, pick a cool plant fiber like Shibui Reed (we held this yarn double). A woolly yarn, like Rowan Felted Tweed makes a warm, cozy, more structured layer.

Abrams Books Slow Knitting
Like the “slow food” movement, Slow Knitting encourages knitters to step back, pare down, and celebrate the craftsmanship of their work. In five chapters centered around the tenets of slow knitting—sourcing carefully, making thoughtfully, thinking environmentally, experimenting fearlessly, and exploring openly—Hannah Thiessen challenges knitters of all skill levels to view their practice in a new way. Each chapter contains explorations of fiber types; profiles of well-known yarn types, makers, and yarn suppliers; and garment patterns inspired by the featured fibers. With contributions from knitting superstars Norah Gaughan, Bristol Ivy, and many others, Slow Knitting proposes an approach to knitting that is both minimalist and all-encompassing, and emphasizes what makes knitting a meditation, a passion, and a unique necessity.
Abrams Books Seasonal Slow Knitting
Slow Knitting introduced crafters to a process of more mindful making through ﬁve basic tenets: source carefully, make thoughtfully, think seasonally, experiment fearlessly, and explore openly. Now, this seasonal approach encourages knitters to delve deeper into those concepts, applying them to everyday making through a series of essays, projects, and patterns that explore the life of a knitter throughout the year. Organized similarly to a seasonal planting guide or farmer’s almanac, each chapter and section is designed to identify and encourage small ways that knitters may begin to employ noticeable change: organizing your yarn stash, carving out time for knitting, and starting on that baby blanket in a timely manner. The ideas explored here add up to a fuller, more mindful year, all through the joyful experience that is knitting.
