New Yarn: Colinette

We received new yarn from Colinette. Colinette is a yarn company based in Wales where they handpaint yarn in various colors and textures.

Let's begin discussing Giotto a ribbon yarn that would make a beautiful summer wrap or shawl. It would be perfect for the Yo! Drop It" scarf from Debbie Stoller's Stitch N' Bitch Nation. This super bulky yarn knits at 11 stitches over 4 inches on a size US 11.

Cadenza is a new yarn to Colinette. Cadenza is a superwash dk weight yarn. This yarn has robust color which paired with it being superwash makes it a great knit for a baby sweater. On size US 6, it should get a gauge of 22 stitches to 4 inches. Each skein has 120 yards.

Lastly, let's discuss the new colors of Jitterbug. It was Belle who first mentioned Colinette added new colors to their sock line, Jitterbug.
We added these semi-solids to our existing lineup.

We've added yellow, orange, red, tan, and pink. Colinette has another technical name for these colors which sound like cinnabar, vattican pie, or salty dog, but a little difficult to connect with the actual color. Jitterbug knits at 27-28 stitches over 4 inches.
