    Swatch Diaries: Searching for Sweater-worthy Cables

    Forge + Cables = Love Way back when our worsted-weight Forge was a twinkle in our eyes, its mandate in life was clear: we love hats, we love scarves, we love accessories of all stripes, but first and foremost, we're sweater knitters, and we wanted a yarn that would make the cabled sweaters of our dreams as eye-catching and wearable as our, well....dreams. Our early swatching...

    Wednesday WIP: The Throwover, Pt. 2

    Meghan's The Throwover WIP Guys, it's been a week and it's only Wednesday. I've been working steadily along on projects seen and unseen, and some are giving me a harder time than others. As a distraction from those fiber projects, I decided to take a stab at my old adversary: baking bread.  Yes, I'm one of those people growing a sourdough starter on my kitchen counter....
  • Spotlight on: Soquel

    Spotlight on: Soquel

    Soquel by co-founder Meghan Babin We've been taking a closer look at some of our Spring 2020 designs lately, including Cheryl Toy's wonderful Glenwood pullover, and my Felton cardigan. This week, I got a chance to interview Meghan about her wonderful menswear pullover, Soquel, which had been in the works since our very early days. Tell us a little about yourself, Meghan! How’s quarantine...

    The H+W Spring 2020 Collection is here!

    Cabrillo by Mary Anne Benedetto Just a month (or eternity) ago we were hiking through the Redwoods and overlooking the Pacific bluffs to capture our Spring 2020 collection. Together with our dear friends from Harper Point Photography, we were lucky to enjoy those few precious days together doing something we love — creating a beautiful collection of knits to share with you.  Sunset Slouch by Meghan Babin We had...

    WIP Wednesday: Meghan's The Throwover, Part 1

    Guys, I might have too much time to knit. Is that possible?  The Throwover by Andrea Mowry 1/2 done! Early last week, I placed an order with one of our new stockists, Tolt Yarn and Wool, for Spincycle Dream State in Mississippi Marsala and Salty Dog, and it showed up on my doorstep just as I was blocking my freshly finished Kuffel.  Several skeins of...

    WIP Wednesday: Meghan's Kuffel Update (Social Distancing, Day ???)

    Kuffel by Alexis Winslow Turns out I've been preparing for social distancing my entire life. I'm an introvert with extrovert capabilities, but staying home for weeks with my knitting, Netflix, and a list of podcasts hasn't been unmanageable...so far. My new WIP, Kuffel by Alexis Winslow, is growing exponentially after my first week of doing little else but knit. Truth be told, I had an entirely different post...

    Free Patterns: A Little Bright Spot in These Crazy Days

    Hi everyone!  Wow, the last few weeks have been a crazy ride, and it looks like there is no end in sight. We've battened down the hatches at both HQ East and West, as both Sloane and I live in places heavily hit by the virus. Both our families and loved ones are doing well, despite being a bit stir crazy, but we are...

    Finished Objects: Meghan's Star Crossed ✨

    Meghan's Star Crossed in Forge + Weld  It's been a whirlwind month of knitting, but my Star Crossed by Jacqui Cieslak (@jacquelinecieslak) is finished! Emme's (@rocksteadyemme) gorgeous test knit of Star Crossed in Forge in our fawn colorway and Spincycle Dream State inspired me to immediately cast on a Star Crossed of my own!   Ever since I finished my test knit for Stagleap, I've been itching...

  • Selfish Knitting Season: Sloane's Top 5

    Selfish Knitting Season: Sloane's Top 5

    So, confession time: between design samples, yarn development, and teaching, I have not actually knit anything on a purely-for-myself basis since I made my first-ever Rhinebeck sweater in—wait for it—2015! (I suppose I knit each of my kids a sweater that winter, but does that count as selfish knitting?) But, I'm determined to change that this year, and to spend some time knitting things...

    Meghan's Top 5: Selfish Knits for 2020

    It's that time of year when the temperature plummets, the snow storms are piling fresh pile of powder on my doorstep, and all I can think about it knitting by the fire. It's around this time when my selfish knitlist bubbles to the front of my mind, so I thought I'd share with you my top 5 wishlist knits to make in Forge and Weld.  1. The...

    Meghan's Holiday Gift Guide Picks

    The time crunch is real. It's that time of year where the days are literally and figuratively so short that my gift-knitting time seems to evaporate. Nevertheless, I've pulled together my most-coveted quick knits, gift list for the people I love the most. The only problem is I kind of want them for myself, too!  For Mom: Sangaku by Melanie Berg Image by Melanie...
