Despite the snow and never-ending cold, we’ve had several customers itching to cast on their spring and summer projects. It seems early but I completely understand it in a way – knitting with silks, linens, cottons, etc. gives us something to look forward to, reminds us that warmer weather WILL come. We have lots on order for warm-weather knitting from suppliers such as – Habu Textiles (Tsumugi Silk, Silk Stainless Steel), Handmaiden Fine Yarns (Sea Silk, Lace Silk, Lino + others), Rowan (Pure Linen, Creative Linen), Shibui (Linen), Quince & Co. (Sparrow), Louet (Euroflax), and many more!! It’s all beginning to roll in now and I’ll do my best over the next weeks to let you know as things arrive.
Have you started thinking about your projects for the spring or summer yet? Maybe this brand new yarn from Rowan will get you started…
