SHOP RENOVATIONS ARE STILL IN PROGRESS - ANY ORDERS PLACED ONLINE WILL BEGIN SHIPPING FROM THE 14TH OF FEB
For some time, we've known that this yarn was coming into the shop and we've been so excited. It's here now: Debbie Bliss Rialto Lace, in twenty (twenty!) colours, and our excitement turns out to have been entirely justified. As soon as Jacqui got her hands on some, she started a Swallowtail shawl, and it's on display in the shop at the moment: This beauty took just under a single ball, which means it's economical as well as lovely. (And easy - Evelyn Clark's pattern is the ideal first shawl pattern, as well as being free.) Close up, you can see the wonderful stitch definition: It's the softest 2-ply laceweight, it knits like a dream, and it's versatile as anything. The first projects that come to mind are lovely open shawls and stoles, of course, but the pattern booklet also features lacy cardigans and shrugs - with larger needles, it will knit up fast into something delightful. So why not celebrate the end of winter by casting on some lace?
