Introducing FLOW!

“Let it Flow, Let it Flow”…..(Now it’s in your head. You’re Welcome!)

Let it Flow

We are SO Excited to introduce a new ModeKnit Yarn; FLOW! We have been developing Flow for some time now, experimenting with long, graceful, gradual color changes.

As you knit, the yarn automatically changes from one color to another, blending beautifully with many lovely hues between the main colors in the yarn.

We are creating brand new colors in Flow, as well as deconstructing our Semi-precious colorways and creating Flow colors in our No Spoilers! colorways.

Flow is currently available in ModeWerk Worsted and supplies are limited. Order Flow here on our website. If you are in the Los Angeles area, A Major Knitwork in Van Nuys has a limited amount of Flow as well. Flow will also be available at The Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair  in August and The North Country Fiber Fair in September.

Special Orders

If you’d like us to create a blended gradient FLOW color for you, or would like to purchase a substantial amount (more than 300 gr) of an existing colorway, email us at kathleen at modeknit dot com (you know the right format) and we’ll work out the details with you.

How does Flow knit up? Pictures of a completed project coming soon…

 

Mini Skein Monday!

Back in April, ModeKnit Yarn was featured at A Major Knitwork in Van Nuys Ca during the LA County Yarn Crawl.

It’s The Knitting Dead in ModeSock. Eight 30g/ 116 yd skeins of colors inspired by the tv show “The Walking Dead”.

This is Tre O Molti by Anthony Casalena. Tre O Molti means “Three or Many”. We think this is a great project for our 30 g mini-skein sets! The pattern calls for small amounts of different colored yarns.

Lovely lovely color!

How about a nice hat?

Our friend and fellow designer Rohn Strong has designed the perfect hat!  Matahari uses small amounts of yarn to create a simple hat that shows off the yarn.  Use your mini skein set to make a few striped hats to give as gifts or keep for yourself. Read about Rohn’s design here.

 

ModeKnitter Ann V. sent us a photo of a cowl she knit with our retired 221 B set.

The pattern is  Sev[en] Circle by Kirsten Johnstone and it’s a FREE pattern.  This cowl looks like a pretty yarn necklace! Ann tells us she receives Tons of compliments when she wears this. Thanks for sharing Ann!

Please feel free to send us pictures of your completed projects! Email to Kathleen at Modeknit dot com (you know the real format) and we’ll share on the blog and on Facebook.
