Thursday, September 7th, knitters everywhere will have a treat courtesy of Shibui Knits! That's the day we can see (and purchase) their Fall/Winter 2017 patterns along with their new yarn Birch!Birch is a single ply extra fine merino sport weight with a softness that is close to cashmere, pure sumptuousness! It can be used by itself or paired with any of the Shibui yarns to create a unique fabric. Shibui yarns are meticulously chosen and dyed to work together, allowing you to create your own fabric!Their newest collection of patterns consists of six garments and two accessories. As always, these designs are modern, tailored, and guaranteed to become wardrobe staples!There is a garter stitch pullover, Fresco, with a loose fit and notched hem. If you're more in the mood for a boxy short sleeved pullover with a high/low hem, look no further than Odessa! Three of the sweaters have Dolman sleeves which are knit along with the body so there is no armhole seaming. Just the thing for a quick knit with a loose fit that creates an ideal layering piece!The two accessories are Athos, a really interesting cowl/scarf knit half with one color and half with another. The construction is unusual and creates a versatile accessory. Icon is a stunning wrap with wedges that use three colors.We at My Sister Knits love knitting Shibui patterns because they are well written, with complete instructions and links to tutorials!
Saturday, September 9th, we have another treat, courtesy of Shibui!
Shibui's Sandy Barnes will be at My Sister Knits all day and she is bringing the collection! You'll be able to see, try on, and squish everything!
