The front cover of the newest Amirisu

It almost feels like summer in London, so again we’re thinking about more timeless summer knits. A few weeks ago we collected¬†knitting pattern ideas for the mYak Baby Yak + Silk yarn, and this week we’re looking at Amirisu Issue 18, which launched today!

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!

With the launch of Laine Magazine issue 7 last Friday, and the imminent launch of Pom Pom Quarterly 28 on the 28th of this month, we want to take a closer look at these wonderful publications. Both have amazing patterns that we are itching to cast on, and we are lucky enough to carry some of the yarns that are used!
