U/KNIT LAB YARN & A NEW PROJECT

I am so happy to announce this new collaboration with U/Knit Lab! U/Knit Lab is a new brand,  based in Milan, Italy and they have the most pretty yarns! When They first contacted me to create a project using some of their yarns I was really impressed by the quality and the amazing colors!
U/Knit Lab features a lovely yarn collection, ranging from eco-friendly to luxurious yarns! I really love the Ginger collection along Beet and of course their chunky Topinambur (first photo)!
Each collection features lovely colors making it really difficult to choose from!
I also designed a pillow pattern using the super lush and gorgeous Topinambur yarn! I opted for lots
of texture in this design and I cannot wait to show you more of the finished piece!
I hope you like the sneak peek into this new pattern.
For the time being you should definitely check out their yarn and why not buy a skein or two! :)

Enjoy the rest of your day!
