Love of Knitting is a great magazine, with clear, easy-to-follow instructions and a variety of fun styles. In the Spring 2010 Love of Knitting Magazine there are several patterns that call for yarns that we carry: String of Pearls (Muench) and Cotton Classic (Tahki Stacy Charles). These yarns are perfect for spring and summer.
String of Pearls is a really pretty yarn by Muench, perfect for sweaters. It has a great pearly shimmer, and an interesting, corded, tube-like construction.
Cotton Classic is a yarn that doesn't get enough respect, in my opinion. We often recommend Cotton Classic for dishcloths and potholders, because of its durability, but sometimes we forget that its also great for garments. It's vibrant colors and smooth texture make it a great option for a lightweight, easy-care piece.
We have a few new kits on our site for some nice, summery sweaters using String of Pearls and Cotton Classic. Check them out!
