New Designs from our Boutique

We've been hard at work this past week getting our designs up on Ravelry. We have so many more to put up but given how busy we've been at Knitique lately we will be adding our patterns daily to our Ravelry Store.

Presenting our newest Design, Fishnets

Fishnets, is a lightweight cowl, made with a yarn that is perfect for warmer days and soft, cool nights. The alpaca makes a beautiful halo, the linen gives it a crisp and firm hand and the wool provides stability and its own level of softness. As with any yarn with linen, the more you wash it the better it becomes. Our sample was washed 2 times before we wore it and all my customers were amazed at the difference in texture. It could also be made out of Firefly which is a linen rayon blend that will provide the needed drape and softness.
Be sure to check our store often as new patterns will be uploaded daily. 

To see more patterns available check out our Ravelry Patterns Page

     The first 2013 Dream in Color Club kit for January is the Ichigo Tam, a simple, classic tam that’s designed to complement the November Dream in Color Club colorway (we have 4 November kits available)

     The January yarn is Perfectly Posh, a buttery-soft three-ply yarn that’s 70 percent wool, 10 percent cashmere, 10 percent silk and 10 percent kid mohair. There are 360 yards in each 100-gram skein of this sport-weight yarn, which costs $39.99 per kit which also includes the pattern.

       Availability is first-come, first-served, stop by the boutique or call us with a card to reserve your yarn and pattern. Once it’s gone, the yarn won’t be available again.

     When the yarn came in yesterday, everyone was drooling over it.  I'm not sure if I'll be knitting the Tam, I definitely see a hat, and perhaps fingerless gloves for mine.  I know Anna said the yarn speaks to her to make it into a shawl.  Whatever your knitting desires, this luscious limited yarn will surely speak to you.
