I am taking a break from my series of felt posts, to update you all on the fantastic new yarns that have arrived at the Knit Cafe over the last few weeks. We are particularly excited as 3 of the arrivals are new additions to our yarn menu.From Cascade is a sport weight yarn. The little sister yarn to big brother Cascade 220. Knitting at 22-24 stitches per 4 inches, and available in a rainbow of colours (as you can see). This yarn is easy on the wallet. $6 per.
“Everlasting 12 ply dk luxurious handpainted yarn”. I just copied this straight from the label but every word is true. This yarn (called Everlasting) is by Dream in Colour. The label goes on to say that there is 275 yds per skein, that it knits to 5.5-6 stitches per inch, and is made from 100% superwash Australian merino wool. Also true! It does not say it is gorgeous, but this is true as well.
If you are looking for something to do with this new selection of yarn, a tertiary glance at the new Interweave Magazine (which also arrived this week) brought me to this standout pattern.
The Dahlia Cardigan has a lovely lace back panel and a draped front with pretty details on the cuffs.
Hello “Starry” by Dream in Colour! The stars come from 2% silver fibres. The rest is much like Dream in Colour’s Smooshy – merino superwash yarn. This fingering weight yarn has a bit of flash!Congratulations to our friend Aurelie for finishing her Knitalong project. This Sexy Shrug was made in a glorious colour of Peace Fleace.
More felt finds to come next time.
