New arrivals

March 22 2011 – thisisknit

There's nothing as nice as new yarn, unless it's new yarn and dotey new patterns to make from it, and we have both in spades at the moment. We've recently started stocking Sublime yarn. We've got both 4-ply and DK weights, in a variety of colours from very dainty pastels to vibrant primaries. It's the pastels that are the star today. They're perfect for small people, and here's some garments that prove it. These patterns are all from Sublime booklets, each of which contains several patterns. The Little Henry car coat, which would suit boys and girls equally well, takes 4 balls of Baby Silk and Bamboo DK. The same yarn is featured in the Little Sophie cardigan (one for little girls, this). It's a useful layering piece, but it'd also be adorable over a party frock or for a summer wedding. For a special occasion, here's a really lovely cardigan. It's called Sunday Best, and it's made with three balls of Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK. It's an unabashedly indulgent garment, but the basic shape is uncomplicated. With a different closure, it would make a very practical everyday cardigan. There's much, much more to our new Sublime stock than baby and toddler garments. It wouldn't all fit into one post, though, so we'll be back soon with more.
