Simplicity by Hikoo Mini Trunk Show!

Now through October 11, 2014

Along with a large shipment of Hikoo's Simplicity DK, Skacel has sent us the sample blanket from the Building in Color book and a few other fun items to display in our shop. Simplicity DK is a supersoft merino/acrylic blend, and a great value yarn that is an excellent choice for afghans, children's wear, and anything else that get's daily use. This machine washable wool blend feels like butter in your hands while knitting, but is a true "work horse" of a yarn.

Simplicity is featured in the book, "Building in Color," by Michelle Hunter. Similar to her original book, "Building Blocks", this book teaches various color knitting techniques, then you combine strips to make a blanket. If you are interested in adding some color to your work, this is the book for you! Carol Richmond is also teaching this class in October at Tangled Purls.
Stop by tangled Purls soon!
