A great layering cardigan to brighten your winter

Our Mill shop is diminutive; so our staggering yarn selection can have a strong impact on visitors as they come through our doors.  Our wide range of Mountain Mohair colors (right inside our front door) makes for a delightfully eye-catching display that brightens many a grey day. We’ve seen how the perfect hue can call […]


And?

We have two additional new patterns to share with you!  Both are designed with our lofty and elastic Lana  yarn, a fingering weight 2-ply made with 100% fine Targhee wool.  Because of it’s wool spun construction, this yarn is a very versatile option for lightweight garments, looking terrific at a surprisingly wide range of gauges.  […]


New for fall (part one)

Autumn has so many iconic signs: shorter days, crisp temperatures, turning and falling leaves and the start of school. Each of us marks the change of the seasons with a different indicator, but all of us here at the Spinnery are feeling ready for the start of a new season! As our youngsters head back to school […]


What’s next?

Lisa's Hat

You might think that the dog days of summer are no time to cast on with bulky wool (unless you have an air conditioned space to knit in). However, a new pattern has been published this week that may make you want to reconsider. Twist Collective’s Fall Issue went live a few days ago and […]


Thea Colman’s Greenbriar Cardigan

A couple of weeks ago we shared with our Facebook friends that Thea Colman (of Babycocktails fame) had published a new cardigan worth taking a look at.  Her new Greenbriar cardigan was designed with Spinnery Mewesic yarn. Thea fell in love with these skeins when she and Ellen Mason came to the Spinnery to teach our Knitter’s Weekend […]


Another spin

WILD GRAPE Meadow

This week Kristin Tendyke’s new Goblet Cardigan has been pre-released by the folks at Interweave.  This pattern is part of a collection  from the designers featured in the upcoming Fall edition of Love of Knitting.  We love the classic lines of this sweater. The Goblet Cardigan has a generous range of sizing options from 30¾ to 53½” bust […]


Announcing several new patterns

JADE Sock Art Forest

To accompany the new yarns that we’ve been working on this Spring, we have several new patterns releasing this week that we are very eager to share with you. All of these new patterns will be making their debut at the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival in Friendship, MD this weekend.  We hope that you’ll have […]


Course corrections

Mohair from Angora Goat

Kate had an “ah-hah” moment in the midst of working on a sample of Heidi Kirrmaier’s Vitamin D cardigan that we thought might be worth sharing.  She cast on for the top-down pattern using Spinnery Sylvan Spirit in the Sterling colorway. She is thrilled with how the yarn is knitting up and things were sailing […]


A new take on a classic Aran

The Aran sweater has a rich history, full of Irish island lore and fishing stories about the one that “got away”.  In the past, each cable included in the pattern acted as a symbol that could weave a tale about the home port or invoke a bountiful catch for the wearer. Maureen has created a […]


A light cardigan for shoulder season

Cap Sease has designed a new cardigan pattern that knits up into a perfect sweater for Spring.  Tekle is knit up in Spinnery Mewesic.  Shown here in our popular Blue Bayou color, it makes for a beautifully textured swingy layering piece whose design subtly shifts as you move.   The pattern includes a generous range […]


Rhinebeck projects

Our weekend in Rhinebeck was wonderful.  The New York Sheep & Wool Festival is a treat to attend every year and last week was no exception.  The weather was perfect (just brisk enough on Sunday to require woolen layers).  The fall color seemed to be at its peak and the crowds seemed delighted with their […]


Maureen has designed a new sweater

We have a new Spinnery sweater pattern to share with you that beautifully highlights our new Mewesic yarn.   Maureen was inspired by one of the first vivid colors we created this summer and started swatching.  This lace pattern became the basis for her new cardigan.  Passionate Kisses is named after the color she chose […]
