Bare Naked Knitspot is an appealingly different yarn and knitting club, exploring a variety of yarns in their natural, undyed state. Yarns will include a range of animal and/or vegetable fibers (sheep, goat, camelids, yak, silk, and cotton are some possibilities) in natural shades from cream to khaki to gray to chocolate-as close to the farm as knitting yarns can get.Through the knitting patterns in our monthly ebook chapters and our clubhouse discussion threads, we'll learn to appreciate the unique characteristics each yarn brings to a knitspot design. Though this year's patterns and yarns are a secret, you can browse the 2012 pattern catalog on ravelry here to get an idea of the club.

Softly-sculpted overlapping curves create warm depth in this criss-cross scarf and wristlet set. Worked in a fuzzy yarn that produces a halo, this set creates a lovely frame for the face and a beautiful change in texture to fill the lapels of a dress coat. The scarf can be knit in two sizes; wristlets are one size fits all.
Flirty, half-hexagon shawl in two sizes, worked from hem to neck, featuring openwork motifs that mimic textured patterns in ice crystals and snowflakes. Motifs are worked entirely with simple maneuvers and it knits up quickly in a heavier laceweight yarn. It's a delightful project in which to immerse oneself for a treat, perfect for Selfish Knitting Month!
This winter trio in three sizes (S/M/L) features a deeply textured basketweave motif that provides cozy warmth and handsome appeal. The mitts have a fitted gusset and thumb; all pieces are quick-knit traveling projects that are great to make ahead for unisex gifting.
