Schoolhouse Press has a new DVD out this Spring and a new wool!
From the website:
What …? A new wool for[tag] Schoolhouse Press[/tag]? And, you say, it’s SOFT? I know; we are super conservative about adding new wool. Once chosen, we have remained loyal until the mill folded (Cambridge and Condon’s), or discontinued the line (Suomi and Highland). This time it is half wool, half alpaca. I used it to knit EZ’s [tag]Baby Surprise Jacket[/tag] on the new DVD. It is a seductive fiber with which to knit and is available in deep, rich shades.
One of the most unique & ingenius of all of [tag]Elizabeth Zimmermann[/tag]‘s designs, the BSJ was introduced in 1968, and has grown in popularity ever since.
The mystery of the jacket unravels as Meg takes you step by step through the jacket construction, including:long tail cast on, double decreasing / increasing, adding colors, baby buttonholes, casting off in purl, sewing a seam/darning in ends.
The DVD is a must have and priced at only $18. The wool colors are just beautiful!
