Just call me Procrastination

Laine Magazine #11 will be available on May 7th. Our copies have been ordered and should be here in time for the release.

Laine is a high-quality knit & lifestyle magazine for knit folks. We cherish natural fibres, slow living, local craftsmanship, and beautiful, simple things in life. Our intention is to inspire you to gather and share, to be part of a community of like-minded knitters, makers and thinkers from near and far. Knitting is more than just knit, knit, purl. It is a feeling.

You can view the patterns on Ravelry.  They are stunning. Just what you come to expect from Laine.

Here is an older Andrea Mowry pattern that I’ve never looked at before. It’s called White Pine. This pattern has just been updated to the official DRK pattern layout and now includes FIFTEEN SIZES! 

White Pine has a gentle A-line fit thanks to the garter details that grow along with the body to create a beautiful silhouette. The sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down, including the set-in sleeves!

You can purchase the pattern on Andrea’s website.
The sweater is knit in worsted weight so you have many, many yarn options.

We have brand new colours of Noro Tsubame coming tomorrow.
Named for the barn swallow that migrates to Japan during cherry blossom season, this is a classic worsted-weight silk/wool blend. Each oversized skein contains 656 yards making it ideal for an endless variety of one-skein projects!

I saw a few Hipster’s on Ravelry that were knit with Tsubame. Someone did ZickZack. They used 4.5mm needles and cast on 72 stitches. What a great looking scarf! Diana is going to need a new project soon. Hmmm...

My last two evenings have been spent finishing my tax return. Yup, just call me Procrastination. I do it every year and then tell myself that next year will be different. It never is. This has really cut into my knitting time 😢 The good part of the evening is that the Jays game is on while I’m working. What a night for Vladdy!!
