…….Is the the cornerstone of the Knitters Life. We choose it with care to reflect the person that we are knitting for and the use it will receive and the care that will be given!
Ie, a new mother will get things that are machine washable and soft for the new baby; a young boy might receive a new sweater knit out of a nearly indestructible yarn; a bride, the softest and most ethereal knit lace shawl; the yarn chosen reflects the gift given.
Emily is making sure that you will always have the right yarn!
New this week; From Biscotte and Cie, a Canadian hand-dye yarn company, gorgeous hand-dyed sock yarns, including a Cat in the Hat colourway and some pretty wild colourways and rich semi-solids:
From the Fibre Company, distributed by Kelbourne Woollen, two gorgeous yarn, both Merino, Alpaca and Silk Blends, Terra and Acadia. These yarns are kettle dyed and very soft.
Many of the patterns in the book Vintage Modern Knits by Kate Gagnon Osborn and Courtney Kelley use the Kelbourne Woollen’s yarns.
Norma came in yesterday to show us her finished twinset. The waterfall front sweater and shell are knit with Classic Elite’s Soft Linen, another blend with merino, alpaca and linen, perfect for the spring/summer. The drape of the yarn once knit is fabulous, another yarn that makes the project. Beautiful job by Norma!
