Is there a colorway you find yourself using over and over again? Or a particular color you are excited to knit with next?
What's your most recent Brooklyn Tweed knit?
My most recent Brooklyn Tweed knit was a pattern I release in late spring called Atmen. I used their DK weight Arbor for this shawl and it was heavenly to design with and wear. I love it!

I first bought Loft at Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle years ago and remember meeting Jared for the first time and just making a total dork out of myself and being quite honestly - speechless. Which if you know me is hard to do...haha. I asked him to sign my ball bands for me and they still, to this day, hang on my inspiration board in my office. I still have those skeins but Shelter quickly followed behind that purchase and I ended up knitting with them first and Bradway was born. :)

Lol...Shelter. But Arbor is a very close second now. I literally need more hours in my days so I can just knit with them all...lol. Shelter and Arbor are different from each other but they both have qualities that just make my knitter soul so very happy. The texture, the loft, the feel....I just love using them. But then I've never met a Brooklyn Tweed yarn I didn't like...lol. And I don't anticipate that happening in the future either.
How do you think Brooklyn Tweed has made an impact on the hand-knitting industry?
