At TNNA in Columbus a couple of weeks ago we released five new colorways and four new yarns. Seeing a yarn in the skein can be very different from seeing it knit up, so let's take a look today at a few examples of our new yarns in action. Each of our new yarns is a 50/50 blend of Superwash Merino and Tussah Silk. Silken and Luster are fingering weight yarns, Croquet is a DK weight, and It Could Be Worsted is a worsted weight yarn.
If you haven't checked out Knitty First Fall yet (complete with celebrity cover model!), what are you waiting for? If you have, you've seen the incredible Nelina Cardigan by Corrina Ferguson. This cardigan was designed to accentuate the hand-dyed nature of our yarns, and it was created in Croquet and shown in Iris.
If you want to try out Croquet but would rather start out with a quicker, one-skein project, try Katherine Vaughan's Captain Florence fingerless gloves. They split at the wrist and I've spent most of the time since I started planning this blog post imagining wearing them and making a mental list of who should get these for holiday gifts this year. This pair is shown in Persimmon.
Speaking of ideal holiday gifts, Katherine also created the gansey-inspired Here and There and Everywhere cowl in It Could Be Worsted. Two skeins and you are in squishy, sophisticated business. This one is shown in Blueberry.
To try out one of the lighter-weight yarns we are offering in this blend, consider Hilary Smith Callis' Pennae Shawl. Created in Silken, you can work it in two or three colors and it starts with just one stitch. It's shown below in Peacock and Irene. (Read what she has to say about it on her blog here.)
Now that you've seen the yarn knit up here, be sure to look for it at your LYS and get stitching! We can't wait to see what you come up with so join the Anzula group on Ravelry and let us know what you're making with these new yarns.
