Just arrived: Louisa Harding Azalea

We’ve just had some beautiful yarns delivered from Louisa Harding, the first of which is Azalea.

Louisa Harding Azalea

A DK weight cotton available in 100g balls, Azalea is printed with speckles of colour to give a pretty and feminine effect which is still subtle enough not to overpower delicate lace stitches, such as those used in the beautiful patterns in Louisa’s accompanying pattern book.

Azalea Book

Showcasing Louisa’s trademark unashamedly feminine style, the Azalea book contains patterns for both garments and accessories from the lace wrap on the cover, to this wearable cardigan with lace patterned sleeves, perfect as an extra layer as the seasons change.  Louisa Haring Mojave

Our other favourites from the Azalea book include this pretty cowl which takes just one ball and would make a lovely gift:

Louisa Harding Riverside

…..This leaf lace yoked sweater:

Louisa Harding Colorado

….and this lacy angel sleeved top:

Louisa Harding Indio

Azalea is available in twelve pretty shades from pastels to brights:

LH-Azealea-201 LH-Azealea-202 LH-Azealea-203 LH-Azealea-204 LH-Azealea-205 LH-Azealea-206 LH-Azealea-207 LH-Azealea-208 LH-Azealea-209 LH-Azealea-210 LH-Azealea-211 LH-Azealea-212

We can’t choose a favourite!  Which is yours?

New in: Noro Kureopatora

January is always an exciting time of year at Stash Fine Yarns as we get to beat the January blues with exciting deliveries of lovely new yarns!

One of our first new arrivals of the year is the gorgeous Noro Kureopatora:

Noro Kureopatora #1009

An 100% wool yarn with a generous 270 metres per 100g ball, Kureopatora can be knitted on a 4 – 4.5mm needle to a light aran weight tension and has all beautiful colour variations that you expect from Noro Yarns.

Noro Romance

There is also a lovely book with designs for both men and women, Noro Romance by Jenny Watson to accompany the yarn.

Kiss by Jenny Watson

We love this cabled jumper in Kureopatora in cheerful and zingy shade #1019.  The cowl is knitted separately and there are a number of options in the pattern that allow you to knit either a larger cowl to cover your shoulders or just the jumper (which has a round neck), so you can make a sweater to suit you!

Dream by Jenny Watson

Or how about this classic raglan sweater for the man in your life? The pattern also includes a matching hat, if you’d prefer a smaller project.

We hope you like this stunning new yarn as much as we do!  Why not treat yourself with a splash of colour to beat the January blues?

Happy Knitting!

Fyberspates Vivacious Volume 1 now available!

The New Year brings exciting new arrivals at Stash Fine Yarns, the first of which is this lovely new book of patterns for Vivacious 4ply and DK from Fyberspates, Vivacious Volume One.

Vivacious Volume1 Cover

This collection of ten classic pieces by top British designers Belinda Boaden and Rachel Coopey has a lovely relaxed feel about it, perfect for casual weekend wear.

There’s a nice mix of garments and accessories for both the 4ply and DK weight versions of Vivacious.

We like the simple and fuss free pared down look of the sweaters and cardigans, perfect to wear to a pub lunch with friends or just for snuggling up on the sofa at home with your latest project!

The range of sizes is brilliant too, with each garment sized from UK 8 – 26.

img298 img297

If you prefer smaller projects that are quick to knit there are cosy accessories too, which use just one of two skeins and would make great gifts or even just a nice treat for yourself.

If you love some of the brighter colours in the range but are unsure about a whole garment in a vibrant shade, why not try adding a pop of gorgeous colour to your outfit with a slouchy hat or mittens?
