photos by Jared Flood for Brooklyn Tweed

Have you seen the Spring Thaw lookbook from Brooklyn Tweed?  Brooklyn Tweed is a yarn company that makes my favorite yarn of all time.  Their new lookbook is full of the most beautiful knitting patterns!  You can view the whole thing and purchase pattern pdf's here.  I'm kind of obsessed with it--wish I could drop everything and make all of the pieces right now.  Jared Flood, the owner of the company and designer of many of the patterns, also takes all of the photos.  Aren't they gorgeous?

I seriously love Jared Flood's designs. Haven't tried out Brooklyn Tweed's yarns yet, but they look so nice!

These are amazing! I always love getting new yarn :) I wish I lived in a place where it was cool enough for knits all year round! These photos are lovely, and I love earthy natural tones in yarns.

Hi, Jennifer! You should try the yarn! I doubt I'll use any other yarn ever again. It's that beautiful. And it's sturdy, so you can tell it will hold up, but when you block your piece the yarn gets soft and cuddly.

I love Brooklyn Tweed! Those spring knits look beautiful. I could definitely use the reminder to knit some more before it gets WAY TO HOT for yarn--
