A Perfect Spring Capelet

The Tribeca Capelet is a perfect transition piece to take you from spring, to summer nights, to fall (and it’s a quick knit, too)! With only 4 balls of a lovely Merino-silk blend striated tape yarn, this fashion-forward piece is a delight to both knit and wear.

Time for a Quick Holiday Knit?

Every year, around this time, we suddenly realize that the holidays are fast approaching and we’d better get cracking on those holiday knitted gifts! To help you create something special and beautiful in a short amount of time, we’re currently featuring some really lovely small projects. These are knit in just 1 to 3 skeins and come in some truly decadent, gift-worthy fibers.

One of our favorites this year is the Quaking Aspen Cowl by Tahki Stacy Charles. It’s a quick, 3 skein project in their Vermont Yarn (50% Merino / 50% Alpaca). It would make a perfect holiday gift.

We’ve also just received some new kits for the Puffy Cable Cowl by ArtYarns. For $58, these kits have everything you need to make a truly unique gift: 1 skein of Cashmere Glitter (100% Italian Cashmere with Lurex) and a free downloadable pattern. All you’ll need to add is a set of US 6 needles. Just mention this blog post to receive 15% off!

If neither of these is quite right, we have plenty of other options for you, in Alpaca, Cashmere, Cotton and more! Come in soon and get those holiday projects started!

Happy knitting!

The Tribeca Capelet: Knitting + Fashion

We love Takhi Stacy Charles! And we’re crazy about one of their newest designs, the Tribeca Capelet. It’s the perfect transition piece from summer to fall, and a quick knit, too (only 4 balls required)! It’s knit in Phoebe–a lovely Merino-silk blend striated tape yarn.

We’ve had the privilege of meeting Stacy Charles a few times–not only is he an inspired designer, but he’s a wonderful person, too. We love following his designs and always can’t wait to see what he comes up with next! Read about his inspirations–the places where fashion and fibre meet–here.
