Dreaming of Brioche on the Beach

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

I’ve wanted to cast  Brioche on the Beach on since it first came out in July.  Renée’s designed a generous warm wrap that will be perfect for winter as well as throughout the year. I’ve been trying to decide on the perfect colour combination  for months and have finally settled on Beyul Singles Villanelle and Islington Blighty.

I think this gentle contrast will help make the speckles pop and not interfere too much with the lace pattern. 

These were some of my other choices:

It was a really tough choice, but I think the finished wrap will be worth the effort. 😋

Nori at Midnight

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Happy Samhain!  To celebrate moving into the darker season I’ve created two mysteriously deep hues. Islington, SW Bluefaced Leicester Silk, Nori is a deep, deep green that is almost black. Like the dried seaweed wrap that contains delicious parcels of sushi goodness, this hue shimmers with nuances of greens, browns blues and blacks.

Cradling the Nori skein above is a warm bed of Baskerville Dark, Gotland/ Exmoor Blueface/ Silk,in Midnight, an inky true black. This Gotland-rich version of Baskerville inverts the finest dark grey British Gotland and light, fluffy Exmoor Blueface of the original blend, creating a darker, denser version of Baskerville with the same subtle silk glow and insulating warmth. 

I’ve added fingering  Beyul, baby Yak/ silk/ ethically farmed Merino, in autumnal Auburn to the shop as well, which pairs beautifully with Nori and Midnight for a 2 colour project like Brioche on the Beach by Renée Callahan (see below).

Restocked this week are Islington Kelp and Siren Call, shown above with new Kelp. The latter can be found in both fingering and DK. 

The ultra bright Persimmon and Padparadscha have also been restocked for a little bit of uplifting colour going into the winter months. These will zing beautifully with Kelp and Nori for a dramatic 3 colour shawl like Teroldego by Caitlin Hunter, which I’ve got in my queue. (see below for more pattern suggestions).

All in in shop now for your making pleasure!

Slow Fashion October -What’s in your closet?

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

My latest me-made outfit! My recently finished Magnolia sweater knit in Northiam and Hythe yarns with @theassemblyline’s new Apron Dress pattern in @raystitch’s gorgeous Crossweave Linen in Fig. I wanted to support other local makers and businesses with this combo!

I’ve been following along with Karen Templer’s great Slow Fashion October again this year and am trying to take part when time allows. As the one-woman-show for this business I have limited time for anything other thank sample knitting when it comes to making. But I have committed to learning to make my own clothes and slowly changing how my relationship to clothes. My goal is to make a wardrobe that feels ‘truly me’ and am finding comfort, colour and utility are key points in this.

As Kettle Yarn Co. I dye ethically sourced yarns in colours I want to wear and all my yarns are tested to wear well for decades. I feel the fabrics I choose need to match my ethical standards as I am expecting them to be with me a long time! One place I alway check for fabrics is @Raystitch – they always have plenty of gorgeous long-lasting ethical fabrics that I know will spend years in my wardrobe.

Their gorgeous Fig crossweave linen is an almost neutral hue – not at all trendy and the colour is beautifully complex. As linens require no chemicals for growth or processing, they have a lower environmental impact and is an incredibly long lasting material, so I’ve been trying to use it as much as I can when I sew. I also only wash my clothes when necessary and then launder in a non bio detergent at 40 degrees or cooler and line dry to cut down I used unnecessary wear.

I’ll write more about this beautiful Apron Dress pattern in an upcoming post if you are interested in learning more about this make. 

Sheer poetry with Villanelle… a warm avocado dyed speckle!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

A new autumn speckle is in shop this week! Villanelle is painted on a naturally dyed avocado base in Beyul Singles.

The warmth of the avocado is layered with juicy autumnal reds, purple and a hint of aqua for a cheerful skein to brighten up any project.

Beyul Singles is a fingering weight  Baby Yak, Silk and ethically sourced superwash Merino is super soft, light and delicious!

Paired with Beyul Singles Balsam, Black Quartz and Iceberg

Sold in huge 120 g = 480 meters • 522 yards skeins, it is made from one ply of fibre, which makes it delicate and best suited to light use items that will not see a lot of abrasion like shawls and hats. Pair it with the other Singles hues in stock, or you can use it with Islington or the 3ply Beyul.

There is only a small number of these in the shop, so get them while stocks last.

Iara Variations and new Sketchbook

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

I introduced the Iara Shawl, A new spectacular shawl by @eastlondonknit a few weeks ago and thought I’d share my sample in new Northiam, non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester fingering with you!

I’ve knit mine in a combination of, from top, Rosehip, Amber, Thistle, Swift and Caspian. Every time I look at the colours together it just makes me smile.

I wanted big pops of colour for winter. Isn’t it fun?

As usual, I went completely crazy trying out combos before knitting. I was going for a slightly 70s colour vibe and it took me a while to find the right one for me.

Here are a few of my favourites:

Canvas, Blackthorn, Caspian                                     Canvas, Blackthorn, Rosehip

Thistle, Shale, Barley, Amber, Rosehip                                Rosehip, Thistle, Caspian

Amber, Shale, Swift                                             Caspian, Shale, Rosehip

You can find all hues in shop, along with the same colours in thicker DK.


NEW SKETCHBOOK

I’m introducing a new magazine-like feature for the Kettle Krew next week. Sketchbook is a place where I’ll be sharing things that inspire me, catch my eye, and give you glimpses into my other makes and interests, from new patterns in knitting and sewing to random design and art.

Make sure you are signed up to the list before next Thursday morning to see the first edition. I hope you enjoy them. 😉

NEW HYTHE

Hythe from left: Ray, Glow, Fawn, Quartz, Snow, Shadow, Cormorant

There are three new Hythe kid silks in shop this week to go with my new single breed Northiam Bluefaced Leicester and other yarns.

The first is Glow, a warm madder shade that works well with Rosehip, Beyul Rhubarb and Ramble Hawthorne. I had some with me at in London a few weeks ago and @charlottesews paired hers with Rosehip for her very own Magnolia jumper, below. Perfect, right?

Ray pairs beautifully with Barley, Amber, Beyul Steppe and Islington Ochre, whilst Snow will create a diaphanous haze with Canvas, Icicle or Light Squirrelly.

NEW Iara Shawl and New Baskerville Colours

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Introducing a new spectacular design for Kettle Yarn Co. by @eastlondonknit – the Iara Shawl

Designed in small-batch British breed yarn, Baskerville is spun from the softest Exmoor Blueface, Gotland and silk by yarn magician @jarbontextiles in Devon. A subtly modern take on traditional rustic yarn, Baskerville is slightly toothy but soft enough for next to skin wear. 

Renée used colours Dusk and Dawn for this new design to showcase the clever, simple to execute stripe pattern.

Find Iara on Renée’s Ravelry shop now!


NEW BASKERVILLE

I’ve dyed some warm Baskerville fingering hues for the autumn that would look amazing in Iara! From left above: RussetMadder and Sumac.

NEW Northiam DK!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co., NORTHIAM, patterns, TWIST- 100% British BFL fingering


YARN    |    BOOKS    |    PROJECT BAGS    |    SHAWL PINS   |    SALE 


Its time for Northiam DK – my new small-batch, non-superwash British Bluefaced Leicester in thicker DK weight! 


Northiam
British Bluefaced Leicester
DK 50 grams = 117 m • 127 yds

Just in time for all your autumn projects, this delicious non-superwash yarn is a perfect yarn for warm, soft garments and accessories to keep you cosy throughout the chill months and beyond.

Available in the same 11 hues as the fingering weight, the DK comes in 50g skeins that work beautifully together for colourwork.



Perfect for colourwork as it has not been treated in any way, this yarn is grown, shorn, scoured spun and dyed at a British mill, keeping its carbon footprint low and clean whilst supporting small British farms.

Northiam is low pilling with a dry, slightly crisp handle. Its long-staple fibres are excellent for durable items and delicate lace, as well as colourwork. The DK has an added ply to the fingering, and the three plies create an even more balance yarn with softly defined stitch definition for cables, lace and other textures while creating beautifully balanced stockinette.


Upcoming mitt design in Samphire green

You can see the stitch definition in the lace panel on my upcoming mitt design and in the cables in the upcoming Dani Sunshine design below, which will be released soon by Walcott Yarns.


Upcoming jumper design in Blackthorn and Canvas

The stitches are also visible in the header shot in the close up of my newly finished Tecumseh by Caitlin Hunter. The stitches are remarkably smooth and well balanced – even in my shonky colourwork! ;-P

I’ve used natural Canvas, Barley and Swift grey in this pullover and the a larger needle on this one compared to the one above it gives it jumper an airy, light loft I wasn’t expecting with colourwork.

I can’t wait to hear what you all think of this new yarn! Find it in shop.

Shirtdresses, here I come!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co., sewing

Just finished my first Isca Dress, view A, and have just cut out another! This pattern is well considered and the designer, London based Marilla Walker, has made it easy to do bust adjustments by adding the markings direly onto the pattern if you need them.

I love the fine detailing on the finishing. At first I balked at doing the full felled seams, but after the first ones had to admit that the finish was so fine they were worth it.

This is the first item I’ve sewn with a full button placket and I am pretty excited to have unlocked a major new sewing level! 
I’ve used light shirting from @fabworksmillshop. It IS truly fabulous! A bit lighter than Tana lawn but just as silky. 

I was quite lazy as this was a wearable toile, and didn’t even bother trying to match the stripes – just laid the two bodice pieces butt up against each other when cutting out, which seemed to work. ☺️🙊

Adjustments /changes:

  1. FBA – as standard, the dress is drafted for a b-cup so I had to add a bit of width in the chest.
  2. SBA – whilst I normally wear quite loose dresses I decided I wanted this to fit more like a Toast dress I have and love, so I added back darts to bring in the back waist.
  3. I found the collar to collar stand placement a bit tight. This might have been due to mis-transferring markings, but had finagle the collar slightly back when done and am cutting a good 0.5cm from the collar from the next version so it has room to fold over neatly.
  4. I added the cuffs from the extensive free shirt modification Marilla provides on her shop (again – why free?). Think I might try to figure out how to do full length, button down sleeves in future.

LOVE this pattern and can’t wait to try the other version.

I do think Marilla should split these two patterns as they are completely different dresses, even though they start with the same shape, and she should be getting paid for the hard work she put into both of them! They are so worth it and I feel guilty having got these for the price of one pattern.

NEW Northiam – Single Breed, Ethically Sourced and DELICIOUS!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

It is finally ready! I am so proud to introduce my new single breed British Bluefaced Leicester in the fingering weight. I’ve been working towards this for ages and am so pleased to be able to add another delicious non-superwash yarn to the Kettle stables.

Northiam
British Bluefaced Leicester
fingering 100 grams = 400 m • 437 yds

Northiam is a smooth, worsted-spun yarn from the finest Bluefaced Leicester sourced, scoured, spun and dyed at a British mill. Buttery against bare skin this long, semi-lustrous fibre has a natural drape, holding a block beautifully.

The softest non-superwash Bluefaced Leicester you will ever feel, Northiam is low pilling with a dry, slightly crisp handle. Its long-staple fibres are excellent for both durable items and delicate lace. Spun in two rounded plies it has excellent stitch definition for cables, lace and other textures while creating beautifully balanced stockinette.


Upcoming Iara Shawl by Renée Callahan in Rosehip, Amber, Quartz,

“BFL is considered the finest of the British longwools, 
the generous staple length of BFL translates into great wearability for any 
day-to-day garment. And from an aesthetic perspective, BFL has a subtle luster to 
it that gives elegance without a sense of ostentation.” ~ Clara Parkes

DK Avocado speckles in Islington!

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

A bit more fun with speckling this week, this time with Islington DK which I’ve naturally avocado-dyed and then also speckled with black, to make it extra, super-duper special!


ISLINGTON DK
SW British Bluefaced Leicester / Silk
100 grams = 212 m • 232 yds

This classy/fun combo should knit up with fairly regularly repeating spots of black and grey on gorgeous champagne background.

This would be the perfect yarn to use with something simple like the recent  Laine Magazine Nutkin design in Islington DK.


© Laine Magazine

It would also work beautifully in any of Renée Callahan’s beautifully simple Zen Variations patterns, adding a bit of drama to the timeless designs. Wouldn’t kimono-like Takumi, below, be marvelous in this simple spotted yarn?


Takumi in semi-solid Islington DK Blighty.


Left: …against all odds (Max) by Isabell Kraemer in Beyul Steppe, Yurt and Black Quartz
Right: Enso by Renée Callahan in Islington DK Siren Call

This speckled yarn would also be amazing striped with Old Smoke or Black Quartz in a simple top like Enso, above right,  as well. I imagine it striped with a solid colour block at the top similar to my Beyul fingering jumper above.


Ketch Harbour by Fiona Alice

Or maybe a super unique shawl, like Ketch Harbour? I love how this shawl reminds me of birds wings.

As always with the avocado dyed yarns, which are more labour intensive and take quite a few avocados, there is only a small amount available. 20 skeins are now in shop while they last. 😘

Find the Zen Variations books in the shop as well!

Make sure you are signed up to the Kettle Krew for advance notice of all exclusives.

Tensile – 3 ideas for yarn substitutions

LInda Lencovic Kettle Yarn Co.

Brooklyn Tweed has released their much awaited Wool People Vol. 12 last month. I’ve absolutely fallen in love with Emily Greene’s eyelet jumper shown above, Tensile, and am trying to figure out when I might be able to make time to knit it for myself.

I’ve been imagining this in all my blends…

On the rustic side as originally designed, my small-batch British Ramble would be very similar to Loft, wooly and airy with a lot of warmth.
You can see below how soft the eyelet definition is with a woolen-spun yarn, like Ramble and Loft.

Ramble in Gorse yellow

Baskerville would give you a softer handle next to bare skin and a bit more lustre and compact tooth, especially if you use Baskerville Dark, with its higher percentage of luscious British Gotland. The jumper would look light and airy, shimmering in the sun.

In worsted spun Baskerville the eyelets will be more defined and the jumper will let through more air than above but will still have a rustic appearance like the original.

Baskerville in Dawn

If you wanted to go softer and more luxurious, Beyul would be perfect. The jumper would have a less boxy shape due to the silk’s drape and the eyelets would really pop in the plied version. Or you could use the new Singles to get a softly defined version.

Beyul is worsted spun as well, so sleek, making the eyelets truly round.

Beyul fingering in Turquoise Tarn and Yurt

Substitute any of these yarns for any of the designs in Wool People 12, depending on which jumper you think you’d be happiest with.

Now back to trying to decide which to use! 😋
