When I was in North Carolina last weekend, I came across a yarn and pattern line that was new to me: Sublime.
Sublime is, according to their page on the Knitting Fever website linked above, “a new luxury fiber line created by Sirdar.”
The LYS I was visiting, Charlotte Yarn, had several of their pattern books for sale, as well as a number of the yarns. This one caught my eye first:
That’s the Soya Cotton book #632, and I love the sweater on the cover. There are some other cute designs in the book as well — you can see them here.
Here’s the other book I bought:
That’s the Bamboo & Pearls Book #633 and you can see the designs inside here.
Both books have some really cute designs in them. I do have a couple of beefs with the books. One, there are no charts — written out instructions only. Two, the book is printed in what looks like 6-point type in grey print on white. I can barely see it. Jeez people, have a heart.
Fortunately the patterns aren’t too complex, so I won’t need to stare at tiny grey type too much to knit them.
I did buy yarn for the cover sweater on on the Soya Cotton book — but not the Sublime Soya Cotton.
I bought some Knit One Crochet Two TyDye yarn — this:
It’s color #518 — “Meadow.” It’s a variegated yarn, but it looks pretty subtle. Since the pattern I’ll be knitting is a fairly plain all-over lace pattern, I don’t think the yarn colorway will overpower it. We’ll see.
I’ll be starting this, I think, after I complete CeCe.
CeCe is at the point where I’ll join the sleeves to the body and start knitting up, doing the raglan and front decreases. Wheeeeeee!
