We are in full summer mode (at long last) with a steady stream of sunshine and balmy breezes. This week, its a salute to outdoor festivals, a warm weather tradition and literally popping up like fireworks each and every weekend. Coming soon to a big open grassy park near you- live music, fresh air, family fun, exotic foods, arts and crafts….
In this just released collection- MARDI GRAS, UK designer, Jenny Watson illuminates the festival spirit with a cavalcade of colour in twenty fresh styles all featuring Noro’s summery blends.
Keeping it light and frothy in Tanabata, a new bubbly yarn in a refreshing cotton and silk combo with seven stripey shades.
Boldly go for Nobori, a real stunner with tropical punch. Noro’s innovative twist of cotton, wool, and silk quietly interlaces with a translucent ribbon to create a shadow effect. Six bright and sassy kaleidoscope choices are ready to pour onto your knitting needles and join in the party atmosphere.
Relaxing by the lake and enjoying the good tunes or strolling through the artisan market, make it a weekend to show off your latest knitting project, with this floaty shawl and openwork cap. Knit in Silk Garden Lite– a luxurious mix of silk, mohair and lambswool available in eleven rainbow hues.
Popsicle-inspired colouring from Nobori in this knockout tank design. Not only is it a quick knit, it does double duty from one season into the next.
Cool summer style in a lightweight halter to show off that spray on tan. Knit in Taiyo Sock with fifty percent cotton fibre and plenty of yardage, its a yarn that’s for more than just socks.
When the stars come out and the music keeps on playing, slip into a lace panel cardigan knit in Taiyo. The big sister version sings its own praises with two dozen eclectic colourways.
