Goodbye Pashmina Worsted

Doreen finished her blanket just in time for the baby shower. Oh my goodness. How cute is this? What child wouldn't want a blanket with a stuffed animal?

All kits are back in stock - bunny, kitten, lamb, monkey, puppy and teddy. They are not available on the website at this time. The packaging is big and we have to ship them in a box that is bigger than we normally ship in. Please call the store if you would like to order.

I borrowed these pictures from Instagram this morning. Claire from Autumn and Indigo is dying fade kits. Maybe these are for us. I can't wait to see what she puts together for the Comfort Fade Cardi.

The colour is Piggy Bank. The base above is Skinny Singles and below is Sock Minis. You can see how the different yarns take the dyes differently.

We're doing some spring cleaning in the store. It's time to say goodbye to a great yarn that is discontinued. Tosh pashmina worsted. It was $41 a skein on sale for $29 a skein.
Pashmina Worsted is a 4-ply yarn made up of 75% merino wool, 15% silk and 10% cashmere. This yarn is a heavier weight version of our very popular Pashmina base. A similar fiber blend to the famous woven pashmina scarves, this machine washable blend is hand-dyed in small dye lots and knits up to create a soft fabric with great drape.
You can make the Adiri Cowl (pattern purchased on Ravelry) with one skein. 
The pattern uses a combination of cables and lace to create an overall pattern that is complex in texture, yet surprisingly easy to work
I passed the lace (2nd colour) on my Fading Point and am fading in the 3rd colour. It's time to sign off and knit. I want need the shawl finished for mid-June so I better get going. I must leave Alex time to sew in my ends and block it :)
