Knitspiration: Stranger Knits...

Solemate in "Weirder Stuffs"

Stranger Knits...

To celebrate the premiere of Stranger Things on Netflix, we bring you “Weirder Stuffs,” a custom-dyed Solemate color inspired by the show. Wondering what our knitted things might look like if we suddenly found ourselves lost in the dreaded “Upside-Down,” we ventured into the depths of our Project Log and found the perfect shawl!

The Walking Dead Shawl by Kristen Ashbaugh-Helmreich

The Walking Dead Shawl’s dramatic shape and gaping holes provide a deconstructed look that would be right at home in the mystical other-world and, using 2 skeins of Solemate, is large enough to double as a much-needed security blanket!

And if the name didn’t give it away, it also provides the perfect project for all of you TWD fans out there!

Monika's Dragonhide Shawl in Chinese Fireball
Harry Potter anyone?
Monika of merryClusters recently released a collection of patterns inspired by the books. 

The Knitted Wit Dragonhide Shawl features short-row wedges and spikes reminiscent of the dragons’ wings from the Triwizard Tournament. And while the blue color scheme is certainly representative of the Swedish Short-Snout, we are reminded of another dragon that made an icy splash in another favorite show of ours…

Monika's Venemous Tentacula in Shepherd Worsted Flames

And for something truly creepy-crawly, the Venemous Tentacula Cowl’s tentacles are meant to be a fun (and possibly poisonous!) color. Using one skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted, the length of the tentacles will depend on which color you choose. Read all about the Venomous Tentacula plant in “One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi” by Phyllida Spore. They are actually quite affectionate plants – until they start strangling you!

Happy Knitting!
