In all the excitement of last week, we didn't have the chance to share some scrummy new colours that we ordered in...
Silk Alpaca is a gorgeous sport weight that is peeeeerfect for fingerless mitts. You can get a pair out of one skein, but with a range of colours that pair up so beautifully, this yarn is a dream match for the Dream Mitts.
Spud & Chloe Sweater wants to be squished. Soft and plump and absolutely fantastic for knitting into baby blankets. Even better: it can be thrown in the machine. It can be tricky to get cotton mix yarns in NZ as we don't produce cotton, and Sweater is a glorious combo of cotton and wool so it's great in summer and winter.
A clever mix of silk and wool, Spud & Chloe Fine is like any good sock yarn - durable enough to wear on your feet, but versatile enough to be made into absolutely anything. The new shades we got in are lovely soft Spring colours - a nice to way to brighten up cold winter days.
Adding new colourways to the ranges we stock is super exciting. Slowly but surely we're getting in every colour of every yarn base and it fills the shelves with joy. There's a simple but perfect pleasure in being in a shop filled with shelves where the yarn speaks for itself. If there's ever any colour of a yarn that we don't have in stock, just let us know! We're more than happy to order it in for you.
Hip hip hooray! It's the weekend and the weather is looking pretty frightful here in Wellington.
If you're local, pop out to the shop (avoiding stray tree branches and big gusts of wind) and grab 10% off all Blue Sky Alpacas Bulky yarn. It's big, soft, squishy and a delight to play with.
I've also just whipped up a batch of Nigella's chocolate brownies (gluten free, hooray!) for Saturday Sit & Knit.
If you aren't so local, the code 'Weekend Treat' will get you 10% off in the online shop until Monday morning. Happy shopping and knitting!
