New Colours in Marble Chunky & Marble DK

Knitwits Yarns

There are one or two yarns which sell like the proverbial hot eggs - in fact, it's rare for a day to go by when we don't sell them; one of these is Marble Chunky from James Brett.  Now available in over 30 colours it's a yarn that just keeps on going and giving and Brett's just keep on adding more and more glorious colours (and patterns) to keep us constantly tempted and busy knitting.

We now have 4 new colours in Marble Chunky (colours are listed numerically so scroll down for the newest colours):
and 6 new colours in Marble DK:

For sheer value and wear-ability (if there is such a word) these yarns are hard to beat - and they now have a load of new patterns too - here is a selection (as ever, click on the yarn pages and the relevant patterns are displayed down the left hand side of the page - click on the pattern image to get all the details you need):

We've also had a small "top-up" delivery from Adriafil so our most popular colour in Sierra Andina (that's another of our best sellers - 4ply pure alpaca) is back in stock:

along with the best selling colour in Poema:

Poema is a gorgeous multi-coloured pure cotton so we couldn't resist knitting up a garment in it for summer.  We knitted this King Cole Cottonsoft pattern:

in Poema.  It's a really lovely yarn but the lacey top definitely benefited from a good old blocking (I shoved the whole thing into warm water and then dried it flat) - what a difference.  Before:

and after:


and after:

And here is the final garment in its post-blocked glory:

And the socks I mentioned before?  Done and ready to be posted:

(Stylecraft Aviemore, shade 1617, blue/grey (imaginative colour naming going on there!).
