New Butin Kits in the house!

I'm so excited to share a little something I've been working on with Jill!  Are you ready for some new Butin kits? I had these at TNNA, but haven't had a chance to get them up on the website and tell you ALL about them!

Ever since I met Jill earlier this year I have been smitten with her yarns and colors, and when I saw her single ply wool/silk Aurora I knew it was the perfect yarn for Butin.  I'm not quite sure how she works her dyeing magic, but her variegated colorways create an ikat effect which is so beautiful to watch emerge as you knit! Behold.....


The new kits have been shipping to stores since early last week... if your LYS doesn't carry them yet, feel free to let them know they should : )!

I've also added them to my Etsy shop.... I do still have a few of the "old" Butin colors left, but not for long!  Hope you like them as much as we do!!!

  2. About time you told us all about this ! ! Just Kidding.

    Lovely and beautiful and really a refreshing addition to the wonderful Butins I have made. Thank you both - Jill and Laura.

    1. I know... I did rather slack on this one, it's the curse of being busy!

  3. I could knit ALL of them - so beautiful. Laura, you are the most wonderful teacher as I learn through your two Craftsy courses. Thank you so much and please go for more courses when you have time!

  4. I recently bought this pattern and need a little help. I'm on row 1 and am trying to figure out how to slip on the first 13 beads as I am casting on. I watched the video for slipping on beads farther on in a project, but I'm not sure on casting on beads in this situation. Do I slip 1 bead then cast on 1, and continue until all the 13 are on (which also added 13 stitches)? I'm fairly new to knitting, having only knitted simple scarves so far.

    1. Hi, You should be shipping all 13 beads at once... what cast on are you using? You should be using the backwards loop one: http://nelkindesigns.blogspot.com/2012/05/video-tutorial-backwards-loop-cast-on.html
