Does the start of a new year inspire you to take on a crafting challenge? Perhaps this year you would like to focus on a particular technique or type of project. Inspiration abounds with a new Manos yarn, new colors, new patterns and the whole year is still ahead of you!
Taking on a crafty challenge should be fun and interesting to you! If you only knit hats, why not try a cowl or handwarmers? Try a lace project, a sweater, add a cable twist, or even a blanket. Experiment by adding a pop of color with a stripe or two. We’d love to hear from you in the Manos del Uruguay Ravelry group – feel free to share your Manos Yarn stash enhancements and projects with us there!
At the Winter TNNA show in San Diego, the newest patterns from the Fairmount Fibers team made their debut. The collection, featuring designs by Emma Welford, will be available at your local yarn shop and on Ravelry in the upcoming weeks. A new addition to the Manos Yarn line also debuted at the show. Marina, a 100% superwash merino laceweight, is arriving in stores now. The first pattern in Marina, the Feroe Shawl, is online and available for free at Fairmountfibers.com. We are looking forward to your projects this year!
