Yesterday was quite the dreary autumn day here in London, but happily the postman dropped off an unassuming box, which, when opened, revealed an amazing riot of colour that immediately brightened the shop. Freia yarns from Knitwhits are completely unique in that they have hand-painted colour transitions, creating a beautiful ombre effect. The possibilities are endless with this yarn – stripe it, fairisle it, make a Pop Spots or Spectra with it, or let the yarn do the talking and give it some good old stocking stitch. We think it’s pretty hard to go wrong with these amazing colourways.
Today we’re very excited to bring you both the chance to win a ticket to the upcoming Knitting & Stitching Show in London (details below) and a new free pattern using our beloved Misti Alpaca Chunky! It’s not hard to fall in love with Misti Chunky. Often times when customers first come to Loop, ready to squish some yarn, they get to the Misti and go, “Ooohhhhhh.” Yep, it’s usually considered the softest yarn in the shop so it’s very hard to give it a squish and then walk away from it empty-handed! Misti comes in some pretty glorious colours too …
I have finally completed the pattern for the Old Rose Wrap. I’m sorry it has taken me so long! Yes, there were technical difficulties. I was hoping to be able to accompany the pattern with symbol craft charts, however I don’t have the programme to write them on my computer and it was proving very complicated to do it by hand. Enjoy the pattern and please let me know if you find any errors or need clarification. ~Juju at Loop
