The Easter Bunny is paying an early visit to Loop as we get ready for the arrival of Spring! We have a whole warren of haberdashery and knitting treats inspired by our leporine friends for this Easter!
Coming up in June at Loop, we are excited to announce the dates of the Miga De Pan embroidery classes! Loop is honoured to host internationally renowned artist Adriana Torres, who is coming all the way from Argentina to teach and inspire. With three individual classes taught over the weekend, you’ll be creating different designs and learning creative stitch techniques.
Each one is suitable for beginners and also for those with some experience wishing to develop their skills. We are also looking forward to hosting a mini Miga De Pan Pop-Up-Shop at the same time, 5th – 7th June!
As promised a few posts ago, we have a treat for you lovely readers in the form of a free pattern by our talented technical editor and knitting friend Rachel Atkinson. Inspired by the emerging shoots of Spring these cabled hand warmers are ideal for those in-between weather days any time of the year. Spring Bloom Mitts take just one skein of The Uncommon Thread Lush Worsted to make the perfect one skein project!The cabled pattern emerges seamlessly from the ribbing into a pretty bobble detail. As Rachel explained,
“I can resist everything but bobbled knitwear, and if I thought I could get away with it, they would appear on everything I design. For the Spring Bloom pattern I have used them to create the buds of this beautifully textured picture motif.”
