New yarns for spring and summer are starting to appear on our shelves, with new patterns and sample garments to complement them. The children's garments always induce happy sighs when they come in, so we thought we'd share a couple with you.
The wee cardigan above is called Little Heidi, and it's a Sublime pattern designed for Baby Silk and Bamboo DK. You'll find it in Sublime book 659. The yarn's a delight: it's soft and luxurious, with a gentle colour palette, and the fibre content makes it ideal for anyone (big or small) who's sensitive to wool.
What a practical little slipover this is - it's a quick knit in Baby Cashmere Merino DK (a blend of merino, cashmere and silk). It's very smart with the contrast edging, but wouldn't it look lovely knitted all in one colour too?
We've got lots more new garments to show you, so if you're looking for inspiration, drop by often!
