Joji's TNNA Cathedral Shawl
 

Knit a Little Piece of TNNA!

TNNA is in Cleveland, OH this weekend, and though we aren't there in person, we feel like we have a little piece of TNNA here in Reno with us! The Cathedral Wrap, designed by Joji Locatelli, was released yesterday at TNNA! In addition to Joji's Cathedral, we've come up with 2 of our own custom colorways, Isla Mujeres, a brilliant blue speckle, and Sunday Funday, a perfect pink speckle! If you're like us, and you aren't at TNNA this year, snag a Cathedral Wrap kit of your own, and you can have a little piece of TNNA with you, too!

For our favorite Ravelry finds this week, we have the Malabrigo Mechita Good Vibes Shawl from Nadia Cretin-Lechenne!

With over 2200 projects on Ravelry, this is a gorgeous pattern that's graced the needles of many knitters. The designer writes, "This crescent shaped shawl associates garter stitch and lace pattern, for a elegant and graphic result." Jessica has paired it with some subtle but beautiful combinations of Malabrigo Mechita! Choose your colors and put some Good Vibes on your needles.

Jenny's Spate Shawl
 

Jenny's Spate Shawl

Jenny fell in love with this linen shawl as soon as she saw its twisted fringe and its dropped stitch, lace edging. Intrigued by the techniques used to accomplish this design, she immediately ordered the yarn called for in the pattern and got to work! The linen yarn creates a cool and lightweight fabric, perfect for accessorizing your outfits this summer. We recommend using Shibui Knits Reed as a substitute for the yarn that Jenny used in her project - it is the same weight and fiber composition and would make a great alternative!
