Reagan by Isabell Kraemer

Jun 11th

Like many of you, my favorite wardrobe staples are pieces that are flexible. Multi-season layering pieces are best and if they can be worn multiple ways - even better! Reagan by Isabell Kraemer absolutely fits the bill. Knit from the top down, this unstructured cardigan combines easy to knit stockinette with an addictive Harebell lace pattern. You can wear it with the stockinette section at the top or the lace at the top - your choice! We've knit ours using WalkCollection Cozy...

Reflection By Veera Valimaki

Apr 16th

Those of you who love The Uncommon Thread yarns know that Ce gives a nod to speckles in two of her colorways Confetti and Turbillion.  She's added a third barely-there speckle to her lineup; Spektor.  The base color for Spektor is on the light side of medium grey with gold, red, blue, pink, (did I see a bit of green?).   I didn't need to see the colorway to know we'd love it at Yarn Culture so Spektor is available in almost every base including Uncommon...
