Knitted with Woolly!

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Brambles Beret by Susixs on RavelryI’m hoping you enjoyed last week’s tour of beautiful items knitted with Natura yarn – this week, I’ll be showing you a gorgeous selection of things knitted with Woolly!

Breathtaking is the only word I can use to describe this Brambles Beret by Susixs on Ravelry. The Woolly shade she used is so icy and lovely, and the delicious stitch detail on that pattern makes me want to reach out and touch it.

The Free Brambles Beret pattern by Amanda Muscha is available on Ravelry and Knitty, where it was originally published.

 

Endpaper Mitts by Shnuck93 on Ravelry

These beautiful Endpaper Mitts by Shnuck93 on Ravelry really do have the exquisite texture of lovely endpapers in a classic book volume.

Stitched in two shades of Woolly, they look perfect for book lovers in need of cozy hands! If you’re not familiar with colorwork in knitting, this would be a great pattern to explore.

The Free Endpaper Mitts pattern by Eunny Jang is available via Ravelry and on her blog, See Eunny Knit.

 

Log Cabin Baby Blanket by Caroscrap on RavelryThere’s nothing more delicious than a cozy garter stitch blanket, and this stunning Log Cabin Baby Blanket by Caroscrap on Ravelry is no exception.

Stitched up in no less than 18 shades of Woolly – this is a fabulous sampler of color and texture.

If you’d like to knit your own Log Cabin – there’s a great Log Cabin Blanket tutorial on Very Pink.

Mother Daughter Mitts on Country MaisonI’m loving the sweetness of these Mother Daughter Mitts on Country Maison. Knitted up in two pastel shades of Woolly – they look perfect to keep hands cozy and fingers free for crafting.

The Free Diagonal Eyelet Mitts pattern is available on Creativeyarn – it’s a great introduction to knitted cuffs if you’re a beginner!

VK Live 2015 Recap

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

IMG_7222What a weekend at Vogue Knitting Live 2015, so much fun was had by all.  At DMC  we were excited to showcase our yarns and products, but most of all to meet our customers.  From the start we were mesmerized by the excitement of everyone at the show.  There was inspiration everywhere. IMG_7150

At the DMC booth attendees could experience natural knitting. They could see our fabulous yarns in person, ask questions and purchase them.

Our Italian Wool, as well as our newly launched Woolly Yarn and Natura Yarn were a hit.  Woolly Yarn is 100% super wash merino wool and Natura Yarn is a beautiful soft cotton yarn.  Both are fabulous to touch and work with. IMG_7260

During the show, attendees could knit with; Woolly, Natura and Goa, some of our yarns at one of the yarn bars located throughout the floor.

To add to the excitement, attendees where treated to a DMC Fashion show on Saturday.  Models were dressed in hand knitted clothes made by talented artisans using DMC yarns and patterns.  The fashion show was truly amazing and brought our patterns and products to life.

Adding whimsy to the weekend wasn’t hard to do with our product; Top This.  Unicorns, bears, giraffes, owls and monkeys were just some of the animals in the line.  Top This is a great yarn ball kit that comes in brilliant colors with continuous textures, a lovable stuffed animal which finishes off the piece and free pattern.

IMG_7208Knitters and crocheters alike will love how easy it is to get the look of multi textures and colors without ever changing yarn. Top This is perfect for all ages. 

Throughout the show inspiration just kept coming, it wouldn’t stop. Incredible designers, fashions, and speakers were everywhere. The show’s gala was incredible, knitted sculptures ( I loved the knitted tee pee) gracing the floors.  The free spirited knitters that were creating every second and all the attendees at VK Live 2015 were the best and have us excited to come back for more next year. IMG_7375

Thank You Vogue Knitting Live and all who visited the DMC booth for making this a spectacular event.  Cheers till next year!

Knitted with Natura !

Saturday, January 17, 2015

Do we have any Ravelry members in the house? Ravelry is perfect to explore knitting and crochet patterns and yarns – and today, I thought I’d focus on all the lovely things knit with our beautiful Natura yarn.

DMC Natura knitted shawl on Ravelry, by hazysummersYou’ll need a Ravelry account to explore the images and patterns in this post – and since it’s free – why not create one?

This beautiful, wispy Drop Stitch Shawl was knitted by hazysummers on Ravelry. The free pattern is also available on Ravelry – Clapo-Ktus by Loredana Gianferri.

What I love about this shawl is that it doesn’t have any of the stiffness you might associate with cotton yarn – it looks billowy and breathtaking, doesn’t it?

Bootees by al-abrigo on RavelryThese teeny-tiny Bootees by Al-Abrigo on Ravelry are so adorable!

Knit with Natura in a gorgeous, vibrant shade, using the free Saartje’s Bootees pattern by Saartje de Bruijn. 

I have a feeling this pattern could be addictive, and you just might need booties in every shade of the rainbow!

Clockwork Cozy in Natura by Strong and Mellow on RavelryThis Clockwork Cozy by Strong and Mellow is so delightfully colorful. I can think of a few boring clocks that could use some sprucing up, and I love the bright Natura shades she chose!

Knit from a free Colorful Clockwork Cozy pattern by retrobaby – this is a great way to knit up little swatches as a guide to your yarn collection – perfect for your craft room!

Flat Rat by maggiesc on RavelryOk, this Flat Rat by maggiesc is hilarious! Particularly for those who have a horror of rats. Knit in Natura – it looks like it makes a cozy bookmark. Depending on how much you love your flat rat, this could also make a cute cat toy.

Try out the free Flat Rat pattern by Susan Glinert Stevens for a flat rat of your own!

Scabiosa Top by Alhana on RavelryI’m taken aback by the beauty of this Scabiosa Top by Alhana on Ravelry. It’s a lovely example of the intricate stitchwork and stitch definition you can achieve in Natura – so beautiful!

The Scabiosa Top pattern by Al-Abrigo is available for purchase on Ravelry and on her site – it looks like the perfect combination of feminine and casual.

What about you? Do you love Ravelry? What have you knit with Natura yarn?
