Freia Lace and Sport

Quite a few of you have been asking (and calling and emailing and Facebooking) about the Freia yarns.  We are happy to announce a fresh batch of Ombre Lace and Ombre Sport.  

We currently have eight colorways of the Sport, and each is as lovely as the next.  I am still partial to Lichen (bottom left) and Vertigo (bottom right), but I can appreciate them all.
Our girl Lisa used one ball of the Lichen to knit up this adorable slouchy hat.  She was even generous enough of offer it up as a shop pattern, free with the purchase of the Ombre Sport yarn.
The hat features a sweet picot hemmed edge (which is not at all difficult to create), an easy peasy stockinette body, and a slouchy crown.  I love the way it shows off the nice range on color that occurs throughout the ball.  Nice work, Lisa.
We also have the Ombre Lace, which Adrienne used to make a Bateaux Mouches scarf.  Again, the full color range gets to come out and play in a project like this.  And that's really the point of this kind of yarn, isn't it?  So, it's on the shelves for you.  Come and get yours.
