Magmatic + Rifton= The Perfect Match

Oh you guys... this week's giveaway is GOOD!

Ever since Jill released Rifton last January I KNEW I had to make another version of Magmatic Scarf in it. I got a skein from her right away, but since she sold out so quickly I decided to wait until she had more to release the pattern to the public. I know this frustrated some of you who have been waiting for it for over a year... sorry?
So,  I want to tell you about Magmatic and then I want to tell you about Rifton and then I want to have a GIVEAWAY (cause its' Friday, yo!)

Magmatic Scarf was originally the last mystery knit-along of 2014's M Club.... it was made with 3 mini skeins and 1 set of Space Cadet Mini's. Members got "parts" of the design, including beads, throughout the year's shipments and then they put them all together into a magic ball and started knitting. (You can read about more about it here.)
Magmatic is worked in an elongated chevron stitch in the round, and then steeked to turn it into a scarf. Fringe is then "self-made" by unraveling stitches at each end of the scarf. Knitting Magmatic is a blast... cutting it is awesome, and fringing it is just plain fun! Of course, the pattern includes videos for these last steps, don't worry! I love the original version that I made with beads, but check it out in Rifton..... (yes, that is my girl, I can't even...!)

Clockwise from Top Left: Spring, Autumn, Summer, Winter
Rifton is pretty special...  it is a single ply, fine USA grown & spun wool yarn. Each colorway shades between 2 natural undyed wool colors and dyed in the wool (by Jill) brights, making it a unique striping ombre yarn. 

Rifton is made in super small batches... Jill will have this "round" for sale at her Studio Open House this Saturday at Rhinebeck AND AT THE SAME TIME be posting it for sale in her Etsy shop. (A little bird told me it would be up around 4pm.)

Time for a giveaway...
Who wants to win a skein of Rifton in Spring to knit Magmatic Scarf (or Magmatic Boom?)
Just leave a comment below by 12pm (EST) on Oct 20th letting me know what you up to this weekend while I am at Rhinebeck! I will randomly choose a winner and announce them in next week's Friday giveaway post!

Last week's winner... 
Congrats to  JoanieBaloney.... Get in touch so I can send you your Colinette Jitterbug to knit Biplex!!!!!!!

Oh, and it is my duty to inform you that sign ups for 2016's M Club close on October 20th...

  1. Green! Definitely my colourway. No Rhinebeck on the West Coast so I am having a mini getaway with friends. They are all knitters so we foresee a couple evenings of knitting, catching up and whatever mischief we can create. I'll read the Rhinebeck reports but my own getaway is going to be a ton of fun. I already know where to go for cupcakes.

  2. I will probably spend the weekend knitting and drinking beer (and doing the usual obligatory household chores)

  3. Saturday will likely be chores and some time in the fresh air and light, Sunday we will go to a fair in Zurich where hubby will enjoy looking at all the loudspeakers and other audio stuff and I will sit in the lounge, enjoy tea and knit.

  4. Saturday is for housework, I'm afraid. And Sunday I'll bring my two years old girl to her first birthday party: one of her daycare friends. I feel it will be the first of many... :o)
    And your girl is stunning! How pretty and lovely!

  7. I wish I were going to Rhinebeck! But I will be visiting my son at college and going to the biggest college football game of the weekend, so it's not all bad! The yarn is gorgeous and the pattern looks fun!

Well, except for knitting the Circo part... But, I could do that at Rhinebeck, too, right? Sigh. Too bad there is so much to do here. Have fun!

  43. Believe it or not, I am finally finishing my Circo tonight. THEN, and only once I've bound it off, I am opening a bottle of wine (or two) and spending a weekend with my hubby just doing NOTHING. (okay, that excludes laundry and other miscellaneous household jobs). If I am still clear headed I'll block my Circo. Actually, to me, this will be a great weekend 'cause leaves are turning, weather is holding and the wine rack and tequila decanter are full. Life is great!!!

  45. Laura, thanks so much for this new version of Magmatic. I loved knitting the original and wore it almost every day last winter. I have to say I was scared to do the steeking but your video inspired me and it was quite easy in the end. Just love you patterns - am a bit obsessed with beads now!
    I will not be at Rhinebeck as I have moved from NJ and now live in sunny Trinidad - yes the Caribbean! I will be finishing my Migra mitts and then starting another project. I have my stash to comfort me when I get nostalgic.

    First of all, your daughter is beautiful and makes a perfect model for your scarf.
    Off to the fall festival with my three granddaughters on Saturday in Northport AL. On Sunday I plan to block Circo - and try to decide if I should part with it --- my daughter had her eye on it before I even finished and her birthday is in November...hummmmm...
    Have a wonderful time at Rhinebeck - looking forward to your stories.

  55. This Saturday I host a bi-monthly knit group in my studio. It starts at 1000 and, supposedly, runs to 1300 (at which point my husband shows up and takes any lunch orders!), but invariably I have a few who stay later, as late as 1800. It's fine by me, because I would be here knitting anyway, so it turns into a mini getaway.

  66. I really like Magmatic Boom! And the yarn & colors are beautiful. I'll be spending most of my weekend helping my brother-in-law with "widower" business - my sister passed away on the 4th. Bro-in-law is quite physically limited (on oxygen full time and an amputee, rt leg) so I'm helping him get things done and some sorting etc. He makes decisions and I do most of the physical lifting etc. After spending time with that, I go home and knit to relax. So glad I have an outlet for emotion & stress. Very therapeutic! I'd like to win the contest so I can knit the Magmatic Boom for my other sister. She isn't in great health either, and I want to make her something nice for this winter. Anyway - Love your work and appreciate your talent. Have an awesome weekend!

  73. I had hoped to go to Rhinebeck this year. Hubs agreed last year to go, and the only stipulation is that the Detroit Lions could not have a home game that weekend. I had to wait months to find out the football schedule, and wouldn't you know it, there are (3) home games in a row in Detroit, one being the Rhinebeck weekend :( However, I will be knitting tomorrow and get to babysit my granddaughter in the evening. Maybe next year, the Lion's will be away during Rhinebeck weekend and he will agree to drive with me to New York. Fingers crossed!!

  74. It's Saturday in Beijing already and definitely an "inside day" (bad weather) so a good excuse to stay cocooned in the sewing/knitting room all day. Sunday looks like it will be better so no doubt there'll be some outside pursuits. Would love to go to Rhinebeck one of these days. I have loved rifton ever since it came out - thanks for the rifton-sized magmatic! Cheers Mara (rav name marakw)

  115. Yesterday (for I Love Yarn Day) I went to the Espanola Pumpkin & Fiber Fest (not exactly Rhinebeck but it's the closest event I can actually attend) and had a great time. There was a fantastic exhibit of coral reef made entirely of knitted/crocheted/sewn items which I hear will be travelling to Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto. So very cool! I also won a door prize of organic oatmeal and missed the opportunity to make a fiber pun about it on the phone.

  140. I spent my weekend, um, working, cleaning house & doing laundry. What was I really doing? 1) Searching my Ravelry queue & discovering nothing in my stash worked, and 2) Lurking on Twitter and suffering a severe case of #RhinebeckEnvy. On the + side, I blocked a 6-yr-old WIP!

  143. Well, since I couldn't get to Rhinebeck, I visited my LYS in Tarrytown, NY. Bought a swift (ball winders back ordered) and wound yarn by hand and knit all weekend. It's hat time here, so that's what's on my needles now.
