I am just loving today’s mushroom-inspired collection by Meghan Jackson! Let’s dive on in, shall we?

Meghan says:

Field Journal is a knitwear collection that includes a cardigan, two shawls, a cowl, and wristlets inspired by mushrooms, both in nature and folklore. Modern details mean the projects are simple enough to bring on a hike in your backpack if you have a few minutes to knit, yet sophisticated enough to wear anywhere. Lightweight Malabrigo yarns in vibrant earthy colours are featured prominently in garter, broken rib, eyelets, and other uncomplicated stitches. I hope you enjoy knitting these five nature sketches:

Foraging
A comfortable shawl-front cardigan that’s perfect for nature walks. Knit in one piece with slim ¾ sleeves and casual lace details. Knit in Malabrigo Arroyo in Sand Bank.

Gill
The clean organic lines of mushroom gills create a subtle modern shawl. Knit in Malabrigo Sock in Natural.

Mycelium
Luxury yarn and simple stitches become pretty retro wristlets with a little bit of cross stitch. Knit in Malabrigo Silkpaca in Ravelry Red with embellishments in Malabrigo Lace.

Spore print
A mushroom cap knit with the simplest of stitches and shaping makes a striking wear anywhere cowl. Knit in Malabrigo Arroyo in Volcan.

Bracket form
Bracket form mushrooms are reflected in a swirly bias-knit garter stitch shawl. Knit in Malabrigo Sock in Ochre.

MFPP: Classics by Amy Miller

Classics - MFPP

Starting off 2014’s MFPP ebooks with a pow, we’ve got Amy Miller’s new delightfully wearable collection, “Classics“!

"Earl" in Merino Worsted, in Pale Khaki

"Frank" in Merino Worsted, in Pigeon

“Frank” in Merino Worsted, in Pigeon

Amy describes her collection as:

A showcase of Malabrigo Merino Worsted — 3 sweaters and 2 accessory sets sure to keep you knitting and warm winter after winter. Every winter I find myself looking for an oversized sweater to wrap myself up in — this is how Earl was born. Long sleeves, overlapping fronts and a huge shawl collar- a sweater to live in. Harrison is a seed stitch front and a large cowl put a simple, modern twist on a classic pullover. Francis is a simple and stylish sweater dress with twisted stitches to add just the right amount of flair to what will surely be a wardrobe staple. Frank is an easy, soothing set to welcome in the winter. It’s simple enough to knit with friends and so cute and fresh you’ll want more than one color. And finally, Hilda uses doubled-up Merino Worsted for a quick set, while the simple cables keep it fun and interesting. Sure to be a winter classic!

So lovely! As I told Amy when she first sent me the pictures, I would wear each and every one of these, happily and constantly! All of them have that lovely “cozy thing that I can just throw on and wear anywhere” quality- which of course is what makes them Classics 😉

Leah says:

This collection is inspired by the sea, and those who seek the horizon. Good layering pieces for fickle beach weather in a variety of colors, textures and fabric types. From the diaphanous and floaty Octo Shawl in Malabrigo Lace (inspired by the translucent mantle of a vampire squid) to the bold and chunky openwork Tidal Cowl in Gruesa, it was truly fun creating these 5 patterns. This includes my first sweater and pillowcover patterns along with a few accessories, and will be the final release before my husband and I move away from Los Angeles (and my watery muse) to Chicago. This collection feels like a fitting end to 6 ocean-adjacent years!
