Sunny linen!

Is it safe to start dreaming of spring sweaters yet?
We’ve got this terrific linen yarn in from Shibui, and it needs knitting up!
I mean… look at it, it’s so neato!  Applying this chained construction to the linen fibre is such a good idea! It makes a nice light and subtle fabric.

If you’re looking for something to make out of this pretty stuff, you shouldn’t have trouble finding something.  Linen is a new favourite for many stylish knit designers.  Here are a few new offerings that I’ve noticed.

All these patterns were knit with linen yarn, some of them are knit with Shibui, some of them are knit with Euroflax.  We have a nice bunch of that too.
If we all start now we should have springy duds by the time the sun decides to shine.

Hooray!
Craftily yours
