Cozy Winter Coat

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Selina’s coat inspired me to write a blog entry about it.

The pattern is from Shirley Paden’s book Knitwear Design Workshop.

Selina used a lighter weight yarn than what the pattern originally called for to make a smaller size. I love how the buttons work into the cable patterns, making a sleek,chic finish.

She even added pockets to her design-worsted-merino-superwash-pea-coat-2

Knit up 20 blocks and assemble them into a stunning afghan. You
knit stripes with a small dip stitch accent to merge the colors and add
flexibility. Knit until square, then assemble. Magically, the blocks will appear
to be curved.

Worsted Merino Superwash

Tuesday, February 23rd, 2010

Our new beautiful merino superwash has been having great reviews!

worsted-merino-superwash-ball

It rivals many other worsted merinos because it has:

– great stitch definition- from stockinet stitch to cables

– 40 rich colors that coordinate

– did I mention this is a superwash? washer friendly!

– an excellent hand– I’ve worked extensively with this yarn and no splitting problems

– excellent yardage- 218 yards per 100g skein!

….and these are just a few of the wonderful reviews we have been getting

If you haven’t gotten your hands on a skein of this- what are you waiting for?

We have featured booklets using this yarn, as well as leaflets from kids designs to women’s and men’s.

Here are 2 cute little knits made by Pam for her grandson using our superwash:

Pam mentioned that her grandson’s father loved the vest so much he asked for another handknit. How sweet!
