More thoughts on Thermal.

June 27, 2013

Strange coincidence that shortly after having blogged about my first ever knit garmentThermal, we've got more stock of the same yarn I used for it - Naturally Haven. 

Why did I choose it? Because it was soft, had a beautiful hand, and was machine washable. It's safe to say that after 5 years of wear, it still looks fantastic. 


In the same line, we also now have Naturally's Waikiwi on the shelves. The best thing about Waikiwi? It's PERFECT for socks. A mix of NZ merino, possum, nylon and silk mean it is designed for the wear and tear socks are subjected to. It almost seems a shame just to put it on your feet, though. Wouldn't it also make a glorious Thermal? I think so. 


I'm trying to force myself to finish knitting my second  Rocky Coast before casting on anything new...but with all this exciting stock arriving, it's proving a challenge! Knitting and daydreaming about future projects will have to do for now.


I'm having a weird old weird day. If you're having one as well, or simply feel like getting out of the house, it's knit night tonight (Thursday). Come on by for some yarn squishing, knitting and tea. And toffee pops. And whatever else I can rummage up for you. We'll be here, knitting, from 7pm - 9pm.

I’m wearing a cardi made of Waikiwi Naturally today. Light, soft and warm.

Do you think this would knit up OK for the mitten pattern you put on the FB page yesterday? It sounds ideal for some mittens for my daughter, she’s heading to the UK in November this year.

Hi Anne! It’ll work for Birdies mitts, but the Reading Mitts are made in DK and the Waikiwi is 4ply. Zealana Rimu DK would be perfect though!
