Just For Fun

Usually, I am a “color inside the lines” kind of person. I don’t use glitzy yarn, or fluffy yarn, or even much bulky yarn. But recently, Tahki Poppy made itself known to me and I was absolutely captivated by just how different it is from anything I’ve ever used before. For one thing, it’s enormous. The skein barely fits in my hand. But the best part about this yarn is:

Moveable Flowers.

moveable flowers and soft squishy yarn

Yes. Not only are there adorable flowers with a little bead stamen in the center of each flower, but you can position them along the yarn in any configuration that works for you. Make a line of flowers along the cuff of a mitt, or arrange them in a circle around the crown when you make the FREE hat pattern that you’ll find inside the label of the skein. It’s a cozy blend of wool, mohair, and acrylic, and at $11.95 a skein for 43 yards, you’ll get at least a hat or a pair of cuffs to keep you warm (and smiling) all through cold-weather season. What’s a chance you recently took with a yarn or pattern?

Try something new once in a while. It’ll spice things up!

Hi Everyone,

This week’s free pattern is knit in Tahki Misty. The Promenade Cardigan is a great layer for the rest of the summer.

The tie detail on the front is a crochet chain that is then laces through the eyelets. You could have some fun with this and do them in a different color, different yarn, thread them differently, or even leave them off.

Tahki Misty is a blend of viscose, linen, and acrylic that is available in beautiful watery shades.

Happy Knitting,

Mary
