TGIF, y’all. Here’s a juicy bit of Elsewhere for you—
- Let’s start with the cutest earworm ever (thx, Anna — I’ve been singing this for how many days now?)
- I’m happy to have discovered the seeming treasure trove (aka time suck) at tedresearch.net
- as well as the Apiece Apart Woman series, which I heard of because they interviewed Adele Stafford of Voices of Industry (a recent Blog Crush of mine)
- A short history of Fair Isle (via Kay)
- Jane Richmond’s Cowichanalong sweater is amazeballs
- Remember that Faroese shawl I posted about awhile back? Jules has published a pattern of her own, Big Star
- and an adorable stash-busting project for a good cause

IN HATALONG NEWS:
I’m racing to try to get the final Fringe Hatalong Series hat of the year launched next Thursday — without a preview post this time. This is all the heads-up you’re getting! It’s designed for men but is perfectly unisex. And it’s just garter stitch and stockinette but with really interesting construction. A great gift hat, with a great story. The only thing to know in advance is you’ll need about 180 yards of worsted-weight yarn, and gauge is 5 sts/inch. (Washable wool if you intend to donate it.) Watch for that next week!
There’s a new cowl kit color in town! The bone repair hooks are back! The new Taproot is here! The dye kits sold out but will be back next week! (We still have signed books.) Looms should be coming sometime today (scratch that: Monday!). And DON’T MISS THE FIELD BAG UPDATE today at Noon Central Time. We had more grey last week, so those have lasted the week, if just barely. This week we’ll have more army green, which has been stunningly popular. Hopefully this batch will hold out for more than a few hours, but if you’re coveting it, best to be there at noon!
So much is coming in or selling out every day this time of year — do you follow @fringesupplyco on Instagram? That’s your best bet if you don’t want to miss anything. And have you seen the #fringegiftoftheday ideas? More to come.
Happy reading, happy shopping, and happy weekend!
Great post – so chock full of fabness! I’ve been following Jane’s progress on Cowichanalong sweater on her blog and it’s a true masterpiece. Her photo next to the famous Fair Isle Jumper gal is so perfect. And I can’t get enough of anything to do with the history of knitting, especially one of my ancestral homelands, in this case Scotland. Finally, I’m looking forward to the next Hatalong installment and the pre-Christmas mystery is kinda fun.
Anyone know of similar hat pattern as in the fair isle painting woman with the little side pom-poms? Would love to try and make one:)
I think you are looking for this pattern: Sixareen Kep by Kate Davies
Thank you! I can add pom poms to end:)
Selvedge Magazine is always wonderful – and thanks, didn’t know there was another “ted.”
Love Selvedge mag, too bad it is 25$ !!
hi karen, will you have the other colors of the field bag in the new year or is it just for the holidays?
Based on the response, I’ll definitely be keeping some of them in rotation.
yay!! thank you!!
