Hope you had a very happy Thanksgiving! It may be Turkey Day, but it’s also a Thursday, so it’s time for more Make It Now! patterns. There’s a theme this week to our suggestions: Shibui Yarns. We hope you’ve been noticing that each season we add to our selection of yarns from Shibui. We started with Heichi, a 100% silk worsted; added Silk Cloud, a heavenly 40% silk/60% mohair; brought in Staccato, their merino/silk fingering; and this fall introduced soft Baby Alpaca DK, lace weight baby alpaca/merino Cima, and their newest yarn Pebble, a tweedy blend of cashmere, merino, and silk.
Shibui has a new way of thinking about knitting – the Shibui Mix concept, a series of patterns that use two or more strands of yarn held together to create unique knitting fabrics. Each of the flattering, simply constructed garments works up quickly, requiring minimal finishing. Shibui yarns have also been embraced by some of the most creative designers around.
Next week we will host a Shibui Mix Trunk Show. All Shibui yarns will be discounted through Saturday, December 7. Stop in and see samples of the patterns below, Mix No. 19, 20, 21, and 23, up close and beautiful!
Our Make It Now! pattern choices are simple, elegant designs using Shibui yarns that would be great for knitting when the clock is ticking. All are either free or available as Ravelry in-store downloads. Remember, when you make these or any of our Make It Now! projects, you’ll get 10% off your yarn through Saturday, December 21.
