Here’s a round-up of some of the new Manos happenings to have hit the web in November! We have a few new colors that are already ready for the Spring lines, like Ultramarine in Maxima (below) and four colors of Serena: Fig, Mineral, Thunder and Dusk. If you haven’t tried our soft, single-ply Maxima yet, I can’t think of a better reason to get some right away than a lovely, subtly variegated shade like this:
Another November happening in the knitting world was the release of the winter Twist Collective magazine. I think everyone looks forward to the new issues of Twist, but we especially anticipate it when there’s a Manos project involved! You may recall from my last blog post that I think Rittenhouse is an ideal yarn for sweaters. Apparently, Mari Muinonen and Twist agree, because they’ve provided this wonderful Freija sweater design.
This stylish sweater is another great example of how fantastic Rittenhouse is for showing off fancy knitting with clear stitch definition. Freija would be a great design choice for the type of heirloom or masterpiece garments that I think this yarn is so perfect for… all that elaborate cablework would really show for everyone to admire, and you could be certain that your hard work would last in a low-pilling, hard-wearing yarn choice. I’m so thrilled that Twist Collective is showing off Rittenhouse in this wonderful pattern; it was great news for Manos and sweater knitters alike! It’s making me really look forward to seeing what knitting news we’re involved in next month… I always enjoy sharing these wonderful ideas and great yarns.
