close knit: the neighborhood yarn shop

Thursday, November 1, 2012


We have shelves full of Berroco Flicker!  I know how many of you fell in love with this yarn, so you'll be happy to see some new colors in the mix.
The new colors include the beautiful blue known as Violette, the deep heathered red called Giselle, and that gorgeous teal, Myrtha.

Want a few ideas?  Okay.

We have a sample of the Simple Slouchy Hat in the shop that Sally modified slightly in order to make it a single skein project.  (Let us know if you're interested, and we can make a copy for you when you come in for the yarn.)  

The alpaca content adds a nice drape, even with the chained texture, so ruffles might be nice.  Maybe Just Enough Ruffles?  Or for slightly more than just enough ruffles, perhaps the Flickering Ruffle Scarf from designer Andra Asars.

Flicker is such a nice gift-knitting choice.  I feel like people who might not normally be into the handkints might easily be swayed by this pretty stuff.  The sparkle adds just enough to make a basic knit something special...I think I might have to make the  Grey Quartz Cowl with this in mind.

The yarn is lofty and light, so it's great for sweaters, too, and Berroco has a slew of freebies for Flicker.  Find your favorite pattern and come see the lovely new shades in person.
