We have all the Quince & co. yarns now that 4-ply Finch has arrived in the shop. We already carried their 4-ply Tern, but it has 25% silk and we fancied a bit of the plain stuff as well. Sometimes, what you want is a good basic wool yarn to show off your fancy stitch patterns. This is a versatile yarn that can do traditional or contemporary projects.
It’s freezing in London at the moment. We’re all wearing fingerless gloves around the shop. My favourite pattern has to be Cedar Shake from Juju’s Loops. Well they would be, wouldn’t they. But see, the thing is, they’re fitted well enough that they don’t get in the way when working. You could easily make them longer in the arm for extra warmth. They’d be perfect in Finch.
I would love to see the yellows and greys, from the shot at the top of the post, worked up into a nontraditional version of a Hap shawl like the Shetland Trader’s Hansel Wrap.
