I’m still playing catch-up from the two weeks I was gone in March, but I’m slowly getting there. I thought maybe you would all like to know what’s new since I’ve been back. Well, truth be told it’s been here for quite a while, but I’ve finally gotten it up and running for your knitting pleasure! 🙂
The pic you see to the left is Plymouth Kudo. It is so scrumptious! It’s a cotton/rayon/silk blend in oh, so pretty colors. There is just enough silk to give it a bit of luxury, and I really like the look that the silk slubs provide. It makes me want to knit a fun scarf (free with purchase!) to brighten up next winter. I know… who wants to think about next winter when we are not so patiently waiting for this spring? What can I say- I was a Girl Scout. Think ahead and be prepared. Which is, incidentally why I also have dental floss, a flashlight, and a tape measurer in my purse at all times. One never knows…
Anyway, back to the point. We also now have Vizions, and Grass, both from Plymouth as well. It’s been a while since we’ve had a nice novelty yarn and Vizions fits the bill nicely. It’s a rayon/linen blend in self striping colorways that I think would make a very pretty shawl. Or why not try it with Jackie? So cute! Grass is (as the name implies) very natural looking; has a definite earthy feel about it. It is a cotton/linen blend, very soft to the touch. I’m thinking that I must make the Miley Tee. In the Chambray colorway… or maybe the green. If you click on the link for the yarn above, you will see all the colorways, as well as two patterns, one knit and one crochet for the Grass.
Let’s see.. what else have I checked in? So many things… I’m just going to throw them out there: Zauberball and Zauberball Crazy, the new Creative Knitting, and the cutest little things going right now- Balloon Tying Creations Collections One, and Two. We are temporarily out of them because Lea-Ann sold them all at the Spring Fling for machine knitters, but we will have them in stock again soon. I know there are some other yarns, but it’s the end of the day and my brain is refusing all prodding to remember what they are, so I’ll have to do a walk about and let you know what else is looking for a place in your stash.
Until then- happy knitting and think spring!
