So ... just in time for the lovely, spring weather we're currently enjoying (doesn't it make such a difference when there's a big, glowing orb of warmth and light in the sky - and it's amazing how quickly the ground starts to dry out and how everyone is instantly more cheery!) more summer yarns have arrived in stock - this time from Rico.
You may remember that I knitted a little summer top in Summer Print last year:
which I wore A LOT thanks to the glorious summer we had. Well ... Rico have now brought out new colours (both plain and multi) and new patterns so, clearly, this interesting tape yarn was as successful for them as it was for us! Here are the new plain colours (scroll down through the multi colours to find the plain ones):
and here are the new multi's, which you can see are a slightly different style to last year's:
and here is a quick selection of a couple of patterns (all of the patterns can be seen down the left hand side of the yarn page):
As well as Summer Print we had new CROCHET patterns in Rico's Cotton Soft (50% cotton, 50% acrylic blend) and we know how desperately everyone is searching for good crochet patterns so take a look at these:
and two new MANLY colours in Superba Bamboo sock yarn:
Personally, I like it when men wear jazzy bright socks but I know that many won't so here - just for them - two grey/blue plain "normal" colours!
I don't know about the rest of the country but here the days are glorious but there's still definitely a nip in the air in the evenings so warm, knitwear is still most definitely required!
