Sometimes a pattern and a particular yarn just cry out to be combined.  When Amelia decided to knit up Christa Giles’ Candlewick pattern, tosh merino light in the fathom colorway was the perfect choice. candlewick1Her finished sweater is breathtaking.  It is hanging in the shop, and we hope that you can come for a visit and consider trying it on.  It may make it impossible for you to put your fingering weight yarn away for the season. candlewick2It may take several months for our selection of tosh merino light to be replenished with a new shipment.  But we think that the color selection of the ShiBui Staccato that we received last week will catch your eye, and provide several rich color options that will be hard to resist.shibui stoccatoLike the tosh yarn, the Stacatto is a superwash, but the addition of 30% silk will ensure that the amazing lacework of this sweater will be brilliantly visible.  Your carefully crafted stitches will sing.We look forward to seeing you soon and finding out which color tempts you.P.S. Amelia (the sample knitter who created this beauty) is willing to offer this sample for sale.  It is available for $255, and for any of you out there with a 38" bust, it could be a stunning addition to your Autumn and Winter wardrobe.
