May we introduce some very new arrivals to This Is Knit? Just last week, we started stocking MillaMia yarn, a lovely Scandinavian-inspired yarn. It's a sportweight, so it's a little finer than double knitting. It comes in a vibrant palete of seventeen colours, and we're rather pleased with it. The main focus of the MillaMia pattern range is on lovely children's clothes in those sparkling colours, and we'll be featuring these in the future. But today we thought we'd show you another part of what they offer. These are the loveliest kits, each making a cushion cover like the one in the picture at the start of this post. We've got two varieties: the cabled cushion in a number of colours, and a charming colourwork kit featuring traditional Scandinavian motifs like hearts and little hand-holding figures and elk (it was the elk that did it for us). One of these would make the perfect present for a knitter, and it's hard to think of a chair that wouldn't be enhanced by the finished article. What a comfortable place for a cup of tea and a few soothing rows of knitting!
