At Interweave Yarn Fest, we’re fortunate to be in contact with so many incredible instructors and exhibitors who love fiber art as much as we do! They are the needle to our yarn, and we wouldn’t be able to supply you with top-notch learning, shopping and fun without them.
We may have a ways to go before April 2018 rolls around, but we love keeping up with blog posts curated by our instructors and exhibitors! Today, we’re showing off a few recent posts by a few of your favorites.

Current Post: Denim Log Cabin Gradient Scarf
When we think of the perfect fall scarf, Benjamin’s creation is EXACTLY what pops into our minds. Crafted from Tahki Yarns’ Skinny Jeans Denim Yarn, this scarf is casual and chic all in one go. Best of all, it’s neutral enough to wear with all of your fall staples, and the length allows you to wear it limitless ways.
If you’re in need of a new go-to scarf, we recommend visiting Benjamin’s post and creating this one!

Current Post: CLOUDLIFT SHAWL
Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the stunning colors featured in this shawl. Swoon! The pattern for this shawl is available for purchase through Ravelry, and you can click here for the link to buy it.
“Inspired by a detail from the well-respected Arts & Crafts design house of Greene & Greene, this shawl features stacks of shaped garter-stitch ‘cloud lifts’, accented by a succession of reverse stockinette welts that move with the shaped fabric. The perfect use for a mini-skein set, these accent welts provide a canvas for playing with color and texture.” –Miriam Felton
