Rookwood designed by Rachael Reese aka September Knits

June has arrived and summer is finally upon us! With June comes the recent release of two great new issues of independent publications – Laine Magazine issue 8 and Pom Pom Quarterly issue 29. We’re dipping into these magazines this week, to bring you lots of ideas for summer knitting. with some of the many beautiful yarns stocked at Loop.

The 'Chilly' cardigan - this uses a dark green mohair and a pale grey cotton/linen, a great example of colour mixing with yarns!

This week we want to spend some time with the newest book from Helga Isager, ‘Stitches‘. The book launched (and sold out!) on our stand at EYF last weekend, and we are so thrilled to have hosted Helga Isager on our stand. We have been a stockist of Isager’s yarns for many years, and created our own designs using their yarns over the years including Oleander, Pinwheel Mitts and Blink. Loop now stocks two more of their yarns,¬†Isager Tweed and Isager Bomulin – we have several staff members planning their summer projects for the Bomulin already!
