Look North

North is Kim Hargreaves' new book for Autumn 2014. As ever it is a beautiful book with stunning photography and features 21 designs using Rowan yarns.

From the new softer than soft Brushed Fleece (above) to Kidsilk Haze and Fine Lace, using two strands knitted together - a favourite combination of Kim's (below).

And of course, Lima, which has to be our favourite aran yarn from Rowan. It is a blend of baby alpaca and merino and knits up beautifully. We absolutely love the new shade Paraguay - a rich blue black. Linda is currently knitting it up as the sweater below - can't wait to see it finished.

A la rentree

So September is here and our thoughts turn to Autumn and Winter knitting. We have two new yarns in stock at Jolie. Rowan's beautiful brushed fleece is a blend of extra fine merino and baby alpaca. It is so soft, with a marl effect and is super lightweight and quick to knit using 6mm needles. 

Debbie Bliss has launched Paloma Tweed this season. 

The pastel tweedy colours are really soft, like the yarn and we can't wait to get started.

And I'm back too! So sorry this blog has been a bit sparse of late. I have been suffering from computer problems which have been resolved for the time being. So here goes....
