New Colours

We thought we were unpacked and then Mr. Canpar brought more boxes today. We are stocked on shopping bags for the store and there was also a big box of Debbie Bliss yarn.

We have new colours of Rialto Luxury Sock from Debbie Bliss. Cathy (above) and Wannietta (to the left) made ZickZack (free pattern on Ravelry) with very different colour combinations. You need 2 balls - 1 of each colour.
A beautiful wool blend which comes in rainbow shades with a touch of tweed.
Yarn Weight: Sock Weight
Blend: 75% Wool 25% Polyamide
Meterage: 400m
Needles: 2.25mm (US) – 3mm (US)
Tension: 30–36 stitches and 40–48 rows to 10cm/4in) square
Meadowside (pattern purchased on Ravelry) is knit with 2 balls as well. One ball each of two different colours.

There was another big box filled with Zara from Filatura di Crosa. Who doesn't love to knit with 100% merino wool from Italy?
The Library Vest (pattern purchased on Ravelry) looks amazing in Zara. Our sample is the finished 43" size and it took 13 balls.

Our friends at Estelle Designs sent a great book and ball winder to go in the gift basket for the Food Drive. There is still another week to make a donation.
The next clue to the Ambah MKAL is out. It is taking a very different direction tonight. From Ambah
Your Hale-Bopp Shawl is going to take on a new direction now.

Don’t be alarmed if you use the rest of MC and CC1 in this clue, it is as it should be….

I’m looking forward to watching these grow.

There’s 2 weeks for Clue 3. Not quite as much knitting as clue two, but I wanted to make sure there was time for folks to catch up in time for Clue 4.
It's time to get knitting.

Good timing on your post. I just ripped out a Zick zack scarof I was working on. I got the colours and yarn as they suggested in the pattern and was soooo disappointed with how it was turning out I frogged it. Clearly the designer has used a filter in the picture changing the colours drastically. I will perhaps try this yarn instead!(Can you think of any other brands that might be suitable?)
