We received our Louet boxes on Friday with lots of new yarn and patterns!!
We received both the fingering weight and the sport weight in Louet's Gems yarn which a machine washable and dryable merino wool yarn. The yarn is spun with a tight twist, which makes it great for textured work. The fingering weight would be perfect for those beautiful cabled sock patterns.
And, I will show you what I have planned for the sport weight ....
(Here's a clue - it is the Kathryn Hepburn cardigan from Lace Style.
I am knitting the red one of course)
We also received Kidlin, a combination of Linen and Mohair, which is unbelievable. Here's a beautiful pattern we saw at TNNA. I wore the sample garment for a while, and might have walked off with it if it wouldn't have gotten Jo thrown out of the show:)
We also received Euroflax - an unbelievable linen yarn that is MACHINE WASHABLE and DRYABLE, and does not require ironing. Laura has already made a washcloth out of it and says its heavenly!
And, last, but not least, we received wool fiber and drop spindle kits.
