Knitting for Preemies

Friday, May 18th, 2012

We love to see and hear about your projects! We received an email from a charity knitter in Delaware named Julie.  She is currently knitting preemie hats with Encore Worsted.  Julie knits the hats for the babies in the NICU at Christiana Care Health System and Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children in Delaware.

What a wonderful reason to knit! Julie shared some pictures of the hats she creates, check them out below.





If you are a charity knitter, send us an email and tell us your story.  You can share your pictures with us on facebook and twitter too! You can also find us on Pinterest.

Twin Wallabys

Wednesday, December 16th, 2009

The Wonderful Wallaby pattern by Carol Anderson of Cottage Creations has been a long time favorite of mine.  The worsted weight design for a kangaroo pocketed hoodie seems as if it was written with Encore in mind.  It is the perfect yarn for this garment.

Char, a customer of my LYS recently shared a photo of her twin grandkids wearing their Wallabys – handknit in Encore Colorspun by none other than Grandma herself.   Char says they love the hoodies and hate to take them off.  Great Job Char!

Encore and Yardley Harvest Day

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

It was a beautiful fall day. There were many vendors with various items. But the highlight of my day was when I saw this cute little girl sporting a darling Encore Worsted Colorspun Sweater.

Encore Colorspun

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

We have had some calls regarding some of the colorspun colors.  We have serveral types of Colorspun:

1-Print- some are varigated like 7118


2- Spot prints like 7401


3-   Faded like 7138


4- Self Striping like 7511


5-  Drifting like 7021


I had some samples of a new color 7722 Drifting Shade knit to show how each ball can look slightly different – even from the same dye lot.  So many possibilities from 1 color:

Color 7722

Color 7722 -Sample A

Color 7722 - Sample B

Color 7722

Color 7722 - Sample C

Color 7722 Sample A-B-C

Color 7722 Sample A-B-C

We have been selling the drifting shades for over 20 years.  They are always the TOP sellers in the Encore Colorspun range.  Sometimes the balls look like they don’t match eachother, this is an attribute to the yarns uniqueness.

Knit and be creative, these colors will continue to impress you.
