Muhuroosa Blanket Purl Soho

Chances are youve never been to Muhu, but if you had visited this bitty Estonian island, youd have discovered a rich knitting tradition bursting with wild colors. Muhuroosa, aka Muhu pink, is the riotous pink that plays center role in Muhus palette of fiery colors. And for us, its the fun and the inspiration of our Muhuroosa Blanket!

Muhuroosa Blanket | Purl Soho

Weve pared down Estonias elaborately patterned mittens, stockings, and socks into a simple blanket with bands of brilliant pinks, intense ruby reds, and campfire oranges. Dark accents are typical of Muhus unexpected rhythms.

Muhuroosa Blanket | Purl Soho

You knit the Muhuroosa Blanket in seed stitch, holding two strands at once and spending four rows to artfully shift between colors for a washy watercolor effect. This striking but uncomplicated pattern elevates your mood and living space, all while celebrating a wonderful knitting culture whose love of color is absolutely infectious!

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy Purl Soho

Introducing our very first hand-dyed yarn, Posy and its partner, Pocket Posy! Like a cutting garden in full bloom, including the odd little shower and glittering blue-backed beetle, Posy and Pocket Posy are seedlings for the imagination.

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy | Purl Soho

One-hundred-gram Posy is big sibling to Pocket Posy, which is the same yarn in a more diminutive 25-gram skein. Both are a super soft blend of 75% superwash merino, 15% cashmere, and 10% nylon. These yarns are machine washable, durable for socks and anything else hard working, and wonderfully soft for the baby in all of us.

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy | Purl Soho

A fingering weight, they knit up at a gauge of  7 to 8 1/2 stitches per inch on US sized 00 to 3 needles. Great for sock knitting, youll need just one skein of Posy for a pair (plus some Pocket Posies for all those bits of color that make hand-knit socks so fun). Posy is also a wonderful weight for year-round sweaters, baby gear, hats, mittens, and, doubled, squishy, cozy, amazing blankets!

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy | Purl Soho

The entire bouquet of eighteen Posy and Pocket Posy colors is beautifully hand dyed in Peru, each skein a subtle play of shades and all inspired by the details and revelations of a flower bed.

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy | Purl Soho

Pink Nectar, above, is the sweet juice of a flower, a peaceful, gentle pink, lovely for a timeless baby sweater or blanket.

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy | Purl Soho

Sour Gooseberry is an extra special hand-dye with distinct streaks of lemon-lime hues, so tangy your mouth waters.

New Yarn: Posy + Pocket Posy | Purl Soho

And because every country garden faces a few breezes and rain clouds every now and then, Weathervane Gray and Drizzle Gray bring grace and elegance and make beautiful backdrops to pops of Pocket Posy color.

sewing: brussels linen high rise emerson shorts imagine gnats

This post is written by Erin of Erin Always.

 

Todays post is such a fun one: a marriage of a long time customer-favorites. Our Robert Kaufman Brussels linen and the delightful Emerson Pants & Shorts pattern with a slight twist-a new high rise option! What could be better than linen high rise Emerson Shorts?

The fabric:

Robert Kaufman Brussels Washer Linen Yarn Dyed in Denim.

This fabric is so great to work with for a variety of reasons.

First, the fabric is 55% linen and 45% rayon, so it has a bit of the best of each fabric! It has the texture and the ease of handling of linen but is softer than a 100% linen and has some of the crisp coolness and added drape of a rayon, without the shiftiness or slipperiness of a 100% rayon.

Also, the yarn dyed factor was a major selling point for me. The fabric being yarn dyed means that the threads were dyed before they were woven, which is what gives the slightly irregular and dimensional color, similar to a chambray. It is beautiful!!

There are other yarn dyed Brussels linens available in the Imagine Gnats Shop in Black and Redrock. (I actually helped to test this pattern this summer so Ive had these sewn up since June. But if I made them right now, I would have chosen the Redrock color because its just too good heading into autumn. <3)

Experiment, Meditate, and Enjoy Kids Zen Pea Gravel Patio Made by Joel

Over the summer we got a family pass to the Portland Japanese Garden. Our son found a cool miniature Zen garden toy at the gift shop. Inside was a beautifully written pamphlet explaining Zen meditation, and how raking and caring for your rock garden can be a great way to clear your mind and attain a quiet focus.

We recently covered our bark dust area with pea gravel by our back patio. We had also recently broken an old stilt that the kids great grandfather had made for their grandpa when he was a kid. So I thought turning the stilt into a rock rake would be a fun way to keep it.

Japanese style rock rakes are a very simple, but clever design. We just used our scroll saw and some scrap wood, then attached it to the stilt with two screws. Then added a cross bar of wood for strength.

The kids love going out to create new designs and arrangements with the rake. Then after theyre finished, they can have a peaceful spot to relax, or finish their homework :)

How to Read Crochet Charts: Flower Border Little Treasures

 
 
 
 
It occurred to me that we have never had a border chart reading here on the blog so I found one I could use for a scarf which was a favourite of mine years ago, and to save it from its premature retirement I gave it a facelift, or a face down to be precise because it got a flowered border.
 
The chart speaks a wonderful symbol language and it says that you:
 
Chain 28 and (row 1) dc 1 in the 4th st and then in all the other st across.
