New Inspiration

If you are like many knitters that I know, you may be looking for inspiration to get you through a summer knitting slump. Here at Close Knit, we have plenty of design inspiration, as many fall knitting magazines and pattern books have begun to arrive. Last week, we received two favorites: the new Rowan Studio and Misty by Kim Hargreaves.
Rowan Studio Issue Nineteen features eight designs inspired by Spring/Summer runway looks - all in "Sherbet Shades" - pastels in "lightweight, floaty layers". There's Sugar, a comfy patchwork tunic in Kidsilk Haze that would also work well as a subtler solid.
And, there's Love, which calls for fingering weight yarn, would knit up quickly and be a great addition to a summer sundress.
Misty, Kim Hargreave's latest, is beautifully styled and photographed as always.
It features twenty-one new designs - mostly sweaters - some fitted and feminine and others easy, slouchy and relaxed.
There are accessories, too - several scarves and this gorgeous cabled hat:
In addition to Misty, we have restocked our other Kim Hargreaves books as well. But, don't delay! When we have these luscious books in stock, they don't last long. Stop by the store, get your copy of Rowan Studio Nineteen and Misty and start dreaming about fall knitting.
