Sea Glass, Mustard Seed and Wild Rose

The Cocoknits tape measures arrived today. They are so cute. 

After years of requests, we have finally made our own version of a tape measure - in Sea Glass, Mustard Seed, and Wild Rose (aqua, yellow, and pink). The bright colors will ensure you can always find it in your project bag. The metal tape inside measures both inches and cm/mm (78 in / 2 m long), and has a metal tab on the end to keep it from retracting into the body of the tape measure.

Because Cocoknits is committed to avoiding plastic wherever possible, we manufactured it from PLA, a 100% biodegradable plant fiber (similar to the Needle Gauge, but not water soluble). The absence of a locking mechanism keeps them 100% plastic-free and reduces the likelihood of breakage.

Each tape measure is packaged in a reusable linen drawstring bag to minimize packaging waste.

We are well stocked on all our Cocoknits accessories.

I put together some colour combinations for Melanie Berg’s Only Good Vibes this afternoon.

Only Good Vibes is a reminder to enjoy the good things that surround you — there are so many of them out there!

This lovely shawl is a fun collaboration, combining Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light and Hedgehog Fibers Alpaca Bouclé to make a soft and dreamy fabric in a gorgeously romantic colorway.

The design pairs garter stitch with lace sections to show what a beautiful world it is when we set aside differences to work together and lift each other up.

You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry

These are tosh merino light with Hedgehog Alpaca Boucle.

Aura and Method
Moonglow and Ozone. I think that this is the combination that I would make.
Calligraphy and Juniper
Star Scatter Solid and Comeback

Copper Pink Solid and Taffy. This is the combination that Melanie used for her shawl.

I have a few rows to go on the heel of my sock. The heel shaping is exactly the same as the toe shaping. It makes it easy to remember the pattern. 

Here is Helen’s sock. She is using a solid colour for the main colour and a hand dyed for the colourwork. Then she used a solid for the heels and toes. These look great.
