(photo inspired by the book, Waiting by Kevin Henkes)

Hi, Knitters,
I have a lot to share with you today, three new patterns, a podcast and a huge giveaway, so I will get right to it!

Pattern Releases and Lower Price Sale!
I have 3 brand-new toy patterns that I've just released today. I am running a big discount sale on all three patterns for the first week of their release. Each pattern is regularly priced at $6.00 per pattern but from Jan. 29-Feb. 5, 2016, each pattern is priced at $4.00 per pattern, which is two dollars off! On Feb. 6th the patterns will be regularly priced at $6.00.

No coupon code is necessary as the patterns are priced at the discount price for your convenience.

This pattern is available in wholesale print form for yarn shops and the like through NNK Press!
The Octopus pattern has instructions for both a fingering weight and a worsted weight version. Both are worked the same, seamlessly, from the top-down. The legs are cleverly worked right into the bottom of the body so no extra finishing is needed. The fingering weight Octopus makes a great ornament!
Here is some pattern information for you:
Finished size: 1 ¾ (3 ½) – inches tall
Yarn:
Small Octopus: 10 grams of fingering weight yarn
Large Octopus: 30 grams of worsted weight yarn
The samples are made in Regia Arne & Carlos sock yarn color #3653 (small size), and Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted 100% superwash wool in color #412 Campbell (large size).
Needles:
Small Octopus: US size 1 double-pointed needles, set of 5
Large Octopus: US size 5 double-pointed needles, set of 5
Use the size needles to achieve gauge.

Materials:
Yarn needle
Detachable stitch markers
Small amount of fiberfill
Ruler or tape measure
Waste yarn

Pattern note: Both sizes are worked the same with the exception of a couple of places in the pattern so one stitch count is given throughout. In the places where the directions are different, the smaller size is listed first and the larger size is in the parentheses.

6 stitches = 1 inch

Now the Turtle joins the other Woodland Animals group of the Woodland FoxHedgie , RaccoonBunnySquirrel and Acorns, and Little Owl! All of these patterns are available in print form for yarn shops from NNK Press.
The four legs of the Turtle are knit first, then when the body is worked the legs are knit right in as you go! The turtle body, head and legs are worked seamlessly. The Shell is worked in the round from the center-out and attached with a quick running stitch at the end.

Raccoon



Knitting

January 2016


Aran / 10 ply (8 wpi) ?

4.5 stitches = 1 inch
in stockinette stitch

US 8 - 5.0 mm

Raccoon is worked seamlessly from the bottom-up for the body and head (worked back to front), all appendages are picked up and knit on. The only whipstitch seam is to attach the head to the body.

Thank you for the chance to try out some new yarn. I've been thinking I need to try my hand at sock again. I've only made one pair but everyone seems to be knitting such beautiful ones I want to join in.
My name is Knits-forsanity on Ravelry.
Thanks again.

I just love the patterns that come with the Arnie and Carlos line! They knit up so pretty and are fun to wear out when it snows to keep warm and snuggly indoors too!

I really like the color pattern of the Arne and Carlos line of sock yarn. My favorite was 3655 Fall Night and it sold out before I got some. Love your new turtle too!

I love how prolific you are. I have dreams of knitting 1/2 of your output and then laugh. You're an inspiration.

I first learned about the Arne & Carlos sock yarn on your blog or one of your podcasts, and I was immediately smitten! I have dropped some not-so-subtle hints to my local yarn shop, but haven't found it there yet. I'm KimW on Ravelry and at kimberlywiggin (at) sbcglobal (dot) net.

Hi, Susan -- what a lovely podcast! I especially enjoyed that you shared your "on your feet" socks with us, even though it involved a bit of wrangling in the chair. So much fun! The Arne and Carlos sock yarn is absolutely gorgeous, and I'm excited to have a chance to win some. *fingers crossed* --Greg, KnittingDaddy on Ravelry

I've been checking this yarn ever since your Instagram post! Love it and adore the new patterns. I may have to knit the racoon for our cabin and hope that's the only one who visits us! Happy knitting! Jodi_l_jaconi@uhc.com. Or rav I'd JodeJ

Malena said...

Oh those colors! I'm just now really getting into sock knitting - the yarn just sticks to me like glue when I'm in a yarn shop! That Arne and Carlos is calling my name...which on Ravelry, is flyingmonkeys!

Kristi ~ Ohio said...

I really love all of Arne & Carlos' colorways. I just started knitting my first skein of their yarn. I'm making my DH a pair of socks in 3rd Edition Belkestakk colorway and the yarn is wonderful!!!! A pleasure to knit with, so soft and squishy. I would love to win and make a pair of socks for myself. Thanks for a great giveaway.
