Summer has officially arrived which means as fibre lovers our focus tends to shift to smaller, more portable projects in soft and lightweight yarns. Knitters want projects that knit up quickly and easily that they can throw in a beach bag or take to the cottage.
King Cole Funny Yummy
Beyond adorable is all we can say about this plushy, soft, nubbly yarn. So soft it’s almost impossible not to squeeze and snuggle. Available in four dreamy shades that are sure to inspire any knitter or crocheter.
It will be love at first feel the moment you get your hands on a ball of Funny Yummy. You will want to wrap every wee baby you know in a blanket, or make one of King Cole‘s darling little sheep or piggie stuffies. Funny Yummy knits at an incredible five stitches to four inches on 12mm needles, making fast weekend projects easy to complete.
We think you will agree that Funny Yummy is the perfect choice for baby blankets, toys and anything that needs to be soft and sensational!
Cascade Ultra Pima
Our favourite yarn for summer knits has had ten new solid shades added to its already remarkable line-up. Now with over eighty delectable shades to choose from, you can be sure to find every colour you could imagine!
Ultra Pima has a soft, delicate hand and, unlike other cotton yarns on the market, it’s not stiff or rigid therefore allowing for beautiful drape. Ultra Pima is mercerized using a different process which we believe puts it in a league of its own.
We also have five new shades in Ultra Pima Tonal which couldn’t have come at a better time! Tonal yarns are all the rage right now as they are perfect for adding a little colour variation or as a compliment to a solid.
We just know that you’re going to love Ultra Pima for all your summer knitting needs. A superb choice for shawls, tops, bikinis, and market bags. And let’s not forget Knitted Knockers — Ultra Pima is the number one yarn choice for Knitted Knockers due to its softness and washability.
Don’t forget to stop by your Local Yarn Shop to feel for yourself the softness of King Cole Funny Yummy and to see the massive colour selection available in Cascade Ultra Pima. There’s really nothing like the wonderful experience of a yarn shop! What’s your favourite LYS? Let us know in the comments section below, we love hearing what you have to say.
Happy knitting and crocheting everyone!
