    Spotlight on Lomond + Alternate Colorways

    As some of you who have joined our Thursday virtual knit nights know, my mom is working on her very own Lomond pullover (and is almost done!). Mom's making hers in the original colorways in Weld (with Fawn as the MC and Charcoal and Red Feather for the CCs), but as we've gotten more of our favorite Weld shades back in stock, I've been dreaming...

    Glenwood: A Q+A with Cheryl Toy

    Glenwood by Cheryl Toy Over the last month since our Spring 2020 collection premiered we've been getting questions about Glenwood, the popular pullover designed by Cheryl Toy. This garment features unusual construction with a lot of wearability. We thought we’d take your questions as a great excuse to ask Cheryl a bit about herself, the design, and the historic city of New Orleans where...

    FO Friday: Sloane's Weld + La Bien Aimée Raglan

    Y'all, I made a fuzzy pink all-stockinette sweater...and I love it. My stay-at-home knitting hasn't exactly been going at breakneck speed, but my first Social Distancing Sweater is finally an FO: I finished my Cozy Classic Raglan this week! It's also the first thing I've made for myself that hasn't been a design sample since I test-knit the Divide hat for Emily in <checks watch> November...

    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...

    It Starts With Wool

      As knitters and designers, we understand that how our yarns behave in your hand and in your finished garments is their most important characteristic. Lots of tiny choices along the way go into producing that particular hand feel and that particular kind of finished garment, however, and we want you to be able to understand both how our yarns are made and why...
