On that note, we are thrilled to welcome Shibui Knits to the shop. Shibui is a Portland yarn company, and they really know what they're doing. The yarns are addictive, the pattern styling is amazing, and the colorways are irresistible. We are starting out with three yarns and a smattering of patterns. Here's what's in the shop.
Finally, the Staccato. Gorgeous merino and silk in a fingering weight...I can see this working up beautifully. You probably can't go wrong.
The designers at Shibui are really masters of mixing. Many patterns use two yarns held together for some really cool effects. Sally went with complimentary colors in all of these yarns so you (and we) can play around. Let me show you the patterns we have right now using these pretty yarns.
From the Mix line, this is No. 9 , a sumptuous cowl made with Silk Cloud and Staccato, and No. 12 a crazy cool hood made with Silk Cloud and Merino Alpaca.
This is No. 4, No. 6, and No. 3, all knit with Silk Cloud paired with other lovely yarns. All three are just perfect in their simplicity.
The Geometry Collection is pretty striking. The styling and the photography really get me. (Anyone recognize the local skate park?) Right now we have Hypotenuse (cowl), Radii (cap and mitts), Segment (scarf), and Trapezoid (drapey cardigan).
We're pretty excited to try out these new yarns and patterns. There are a few more colors on the way, so I'll let you know when they arrive. Come by and let us know what you think!
