Erika Knight is a name you’ve heard us mention before. She is a very talented UK designer who got our attention with her stunning Simple Crocheting book. It has inspired more than one of us to take up crochet hooks for the first time. But her talents extend to the knitting world as well, and her designs that support her British Blue Wool yarn and Fur Wool are some of the best baby knits that we’ve come across in ages. The finished knits are classic, simple, totally wearable, with playful details that make them hard to resist.
We are proud to be the very first hosts of an Erika Knight Trunk Show. These samples arrived in the shop this week for a limited engagement. We hope that you will stop by to see the full collection of wee knits that will certainly make an Erika Knight fan of you too.
We have a special pattern booklet that includes all the knitting patterns sampled in the trunk show. We also have single pattern postcards that are FREE with purchase of some of the Blue Wool yarn. Julie and her sister Diane agree that Erika Knight’s Blue Wool is some of the finest yarn they’ve worked with. Made from 100% British Blue Faced Leicester, this yarn is silky soft with a beautiful luster that makes stitches pop! Exactly how is this wool different? BFL wool is longer, curlier, and lighter than average, it results in a yarn with beautiful drape that is a pleasure to wear against the skin. We stock the full range of colors available, and each skein is just $6.50.
And if that wasn't enough, we also have kits available for $18 that include yarn and a pattern to make booties for your little prince or princess. These were designed with the imminent arrival of Kate and William's new baby in mind. But who doesn't think of their little one as royalty?
We hope that you'll have a chance to visit before the 22nd to see these precious samples, and check out the beautiful BFL yarn that they highlight.
