This last couple of weeks have been fabulous – lots of boxes and new items to admire and pet.
The Kauni arrived last week as well – the colours, the colours!! and the way they knit up – in lace, in sweaters, in felt. I can see many possibilities in this wool 4-ply/sport. It looks gorgeous in lace and felts beautifully! And we have 15 colourways, something for everyone on your list. The “Big Bump” is particularly premium, soft spun alpaca, heavent to the hand, come in and pet it yourself.
Also new to us, Della Q bags and totes – tweed to go! The Addi Lace 16 inch needles have also finally arrived, circular lace anyone? Bagsmith is back in the store and we have their storage cubes and project bags to get you organized.
I love the summer. It lets me catch up with my knitting! The Summer seems to mentally slow down time so that I can fit in those projects that have been percolating in the back of my brain – like the Jester Capelet – I’ve been wanting to try the yarn, Kiwi, by Zealana, a lace weight merino, cotton, possom blend since it
arrived last fall! And It fulfilled all of my expectations. Smooth to knit, plys stay tight and soft to the hand. I can hardly wait to block as the possom should bloom a little and add an extra softness and halo to the project!
Hope that your summer is going well. Happy Knitting!
