Spring

I didn't do much knitting while away. Not that I really thought I was going to knit in Vegas. I'm happy with how the colour looks. There is a football game and many hockey games on right now so hopefully I can get a few rows knit.

Most of the tosh shipment has been added to the website. The colour chips for the new shades aren't there yet but hopefully this week.


Here are the new spring yarns from Sirdar.

Amalfi DK has been inspired by the gorgeous Amalfi coast in Italy and has a beautiful cotton blend making it wonderfully soft. Amalfi DK comes in a palette of 8 shades, each with a colourful nep running through them. It is a machine washable, standard double knitting yarn and will knit to all Sirdar double knitting patterns.

Jolly DK is a scrumptiously textured yarn that is great for babies and children alike. It comes in a range of vibrant colour effect shades that kids are sure to love! It is a fantastic all season yarn and has plenty of stylish designs for children aged between 2 to 13 years. Jolly DK is machine washable on a wool cycle.

Sirdar Cotton Prints DK is from the same stable as our much-loved Cotton 4 Ply and Cotton DK yarns. It is made using 100% mercerised cotton, this creates a yarn with a subtle sheen and the most incredible stitch definition, perfect for both knit and crochet designs. Cotton Prints DK comes in a range of tonal shades, including both modern brights and softer hues too. It is a machine washable, standard double knitting yarn and will knit to all Sirdar double knitting patterns.
