» Listings for August 2017

  1. I loved pairing yarn and patterns for the previous YarniTea club, it was always fun to watch something develop on theme and whilst YarniTea club has been retired we’re going to be having a new yarn pattern club. One that in true Third Vault Style you’ve chosen by telling me what Ideas you like the most. The Vaulter's Book Club!

    Now you’ve just received some (fantastic :P) yarn and mini skeins for your Potter club but you don’t quite know what to make with them.

    So here I’ve put together a list of choices in varied yarn weights so that there is something for everyone. The majority of them are on theme (These are also mostly knitting patterns, but i have tried to find some on theme crochet) :D. 

    If you’d like to see all of them at once with easy linking to each on Ravelry you can check out the Potter Club Bundle, I’ve also thrown in some random themed patterns that aren’t listed here but are pretty cool and can be made out of stash yarn.

    Lace Weight Patterns
    These patterns can be achieved with one skein of Tesseract.


    Mermaid’s song from the Unofficial Harry Potter Knits Magazine


    Venemous tentacula by Jennifer Dassau

    This is a simple triangle shawl with a lot of interest, so worth it if you want something simple but fun.  

    Fingering and Sock weight
    I’ve tried to include options for if you chose companion 4ply or our luxury bases as well as sock pattern options that will work well with Twin Cores.

    Socks
    Hermione’s everyday socks by Erica Lueder
    These are a great pattern to tame most variegated yarns for socks. So worth having a look at.

     

    Half blood Prince by Angela tennant

    Bellatrix by Monkey Toes


    Shawls

    Firebolt by Mia Rinde



     

     

    Olivander Shawl by Kay F Jones
    A nice shawl that requires another skein of fingering for wide stripes, but could be fun to pair something with the variegated twin cores skein.

     

    DK weight

    Queenie Goldstein Cowl By Emily Bujold

    Time Turner fingerless mitts by knitting for sanity


    Luna lovegood scarf by Jen valure (Crochet)


    Hermionie’s Everyday Mitts by Erica Lueder

     

    Mini skein Patterns

    Great Weekend Mitts by Thea Eschliman


    These could be a great pattern for the mini skeins, you can pair friend and foe together or have friend’s on one glove and Foe on the other. Or you could use these to demonstrate some house pride!

    E.L.F cap

    Seems like a great way to use up minis, though only if you're feeling like channelling a little dobby :D

    Hallowed Hands
    want your own potter yarn version of Hermione’s gloves these Dk mitts are a good option for your Dk minis, throw in a couple of other colours too.

    Now I hope this has helped with some project choices, I wish that I could have found more but I will keep adding to the bundle as I go along so keep checking it out, there are more in the bundle than here already :D. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for patterns that I could add or if any of these spark your interest !

  2. Hey hey! 2 blog posts in one week? What’s that all about!

    Well as I mentioned on Monday, the 9th of August was Third Vault Yarns 2nd birthday. Sadly a little bit of rain and a mini bout of flooding meant that celebrations had to be postponed. Never fear the party is here! We’re having fun over on the Third Vault Yarns facebook page. As we do that I thought I’d make a couple of announcements.

    If you’ve been keeping abreast of the happenings in TVY world there was a recent survey to find out what you wanted to see from Third Vault in terms of yarn clubs. Now I’ve gone through all the responses and made some decisions based on your selections. There won’t be a monthly club but there will be a club every month. Which means three Quarterly clubs. So someone’s going to have to help me name the original quarterly club, yes that’s the next game, winner gets this year’s Nine worlds gradient :D.

    Asgard & Midgard-2

    The first club of each quarter will be The Vaulter’s Book Club, yep that’s right. It’ll be books that fall under the Third Vault Yarns remit. There will be yarns inspired by different books that fit a general theme for the Quarter, the last club of the quarter will also be in this theme but I’ll announce that club at a later date. The theme for Q4 is in keeping with Nine Worlds just having gone is Mythology (The normal Quarterly club won’t necessarily fit into the theme). The book will be announced at the beginning of the quarter when sign ups open, so you can read along with us whilst you wait on your club box, in which you get yarn, and a pattern, as well as a book themed extra.

    As a thank you for responding to the club survey i promised that i would draw a name to win a place on the new club so congratulations to 

    club survey
    I can't help but notice it would have been a most auspicious number if we'd had one more response, next time though :P For now a hearty congrats to Merlyn Reid
