I’m typically not one to go all out at the New Year, but I will be wide awake and toasting the end of 2020 for sure. I am also delighted for the year to end because it means the newest Olive Knits KAL is about to begin – and Marie’s design, Fiadh, featuring Lucky Tweed, is stunning!
Like her previous January Workshops, Marie has created an educational component to the knit along, ensuring a quality, wearable garment for years to come.
From the website: “This year we will explore the history of traditional Irish Aran knitting, combined with Marie’s modern tutorials and new techniques. This workshop-style knitalong includes the pattern and 8 weeks of lessons and tutorials to go along with your making journey.”
Marie has elected to use our Lucky Tweed for Fiadh, the perfect yarn for an Aran sweater! Lucky Tweed is a woolen spun aran weight authentic Donegal yarn made in Donegal, Ireland. The nature of the woolen-spun yarn means there is ample yardage – 210 yards! – in a 100 gram skein, and the airy yarn has a lofty hand, tweedy texture, and soft feel.
Check out the full Workshop listing on the Olive Knits website for more information and to sign up!
Looking for Lucky Tweed? We recently received an order at the warehouse – including 9 new colors! I compiled a list below of shops who were sent Lucky in the last few weeks so you can easily get what you need from a LYS near you!
