A reprieve from -20C weather! Hooray!
Is it possible that Spring is actually on it’s way? It appears so!
More evidence that this is the case comes in the shipments we have been receiving this week – yarns for springtime knitting! Double Hooray!
Koigu KPM has arrived in the shop. Endlessly delightful, hand dyed skeins come in 50 gram bundles of joy so you can fill your boots with colours to make fine shawls and scarves and light weight sweaters for this coming spring.
If you need just a bit more colour in your colour pallet, there are koigu mini skeins too. These wee skeinettes have 10 metres of yarn on each so you can add a dash of this and that to all your knittables.
The Knit Café has designed several patterns with Koigu and the skeinettes , and now…..drum roll…. they are available as
This is one of our most popular patterns and it is a great pattern to knit right about now, so you can be wearing it in the following weeks and months as the frost leaves the air and is replaced with merely a nip. The 504 King West Knit Kit comes with the pattern and two 50 gram skeins of koigu KPM and 3 skeinettes too. You can choose the original colours of our sample 504, or you can choose from a selection of other colour pallets we offer up for your perusal. Each colour combo is named for a stop of the 504 King streetcar’s route along Roncesvalles Avenue. Have a look at them all HERE.
These sweet pants are also made courtesy of Koigu KPM and our friends the skeinettes. Koigu – I should mention, is a soft merino wool that is machine washable and therefore perfect for kids duds. The Baby Harem Knit Kit comes with all the yarn, including the complimentary mini skeins, you will need to make these cozy pants. The pants are sized 6-12 months, 12-18 months, and 18-24 months but you can read all about them and find the Knit Kit HERE.
If you would like to pick out alternative colours for these projects and others, Koigu KPM is one of our featured yarns selling in the webshop right now! There are many fresh colours to choose from, but like all our featured yarns they will be available to purchase online for a limited time only.
If you are in the Roncesvalles neighbourhood we will be most happy to give you a guided tour of the new Koigu KPM and the mini skeins too and help you choose your very own custom colours for any project.
see you soon
