Spring from Sirdar

In the boxes that Kim and I unpacked yesterday was a new yarn from Sirdar.
Americana DK is a gorgeous printed cotton based yarn that is unique to Sirdar. It comes in a range of inspiring colours that will create the perfect garments to team with denim, creating a casual summer vibe. The range has a variety of leaflets and a book crammed full of stunning easy to wear designs for women and girls. This brilliant yarn is machine washable and incredibly soft to both knit and wear. Americana DK is extremely economical and knits to all of our DK leaflets, meaning that there is no end to the beautiful garments you can make with this fantastic yarn.

60% cotton
40% acrylic
135m on a 50 gram ball


We have the yarn and books (all the garments shown plus more are in the book) in stock. For some reason the leaflets haven't arrived yet. Hopefully in the next few weeks.
Fun colours for summer.

Kate Atherley

Many of you have been asking when Kate is coming back. Right now we are looking at Saturday May 4 and Saturday May 25. I don't know what she will be teaching - we will let you know closer to the date.

Darlene stopped in today wearing the Lidiya Scarf from Rowan Magazine #48 knit in Rowan Felted Tweed.
Fairisle knitted colourful tube-style winter scarf.
This was Darlene's first Fairisle project-she did an amazing job.

Thank goodness someone has knitting to show off. I'm almost done section 5 of Fifty One Shades of Truth. Hopefully tonight.
