A sure sign of the season changing is the arrival of new pattern books and sample garments. We've just taken delivery of the latest offerings fromn Sublime, and no sooner were they out of the box than we wanted to share them with you. First of all, there's the sweet cardigan pictured above. It's called Plisse, and it's from the Fifth Extra Fine Merino Wool Book (there's nine other patterns for women and girls in there as well). It's made from Sublime Extra Fine Merino DK, which comes in a gorgeous range of colours. It's a simple and charming knit, and it's perfect for those days when you simply can't predict the weather. Vivaldi, this cardigan from the Third Cashmere Merino Silk DK book, makes us think of lazy late spring evenings. It's relaxed and generous, and that draped front is flattering and easy to wear. Cashmere Merino Silk DK is one of the most delicious yarns we have, and there's a marvellous range of colours. The pattern book's got seventeen other patterns for women's garments and accessories too, from coats to mittens. In that yarn...oh my! Soon it'll be time to put away the warm jumpers, and then we'll be looking for easy uncomplicated garments. These fit the bill perfectly.
