Holiday Colors – Limited Release Now Available
Our limited release of Holiday 2018 color ways are live in four of our Nice & Knit bases including Fingering, Sock, DK, and Worsted! Pictured above (left to right): Drive-In, Poinsettia, Driftwood, Black watch, Christmas Bow, Tartan, Navy Pier. These colors turned out to be some of our most favorite color ways – maybe because they’re inspired by our favorite plaids or maybe just because we love this season so much.
Let’s take a closer look:
They’re so fun and festive to work with whether you whip up a quick hat or pair of socks to gift or just a little something for yourself. I was so eager to use Black watch last week, that I quickly whipped up a Fidra by Gudrun Johnston (amazing pattern, btw) hat out of it. The pattern calls for Bulky weight yarn, but I just held our Worsted weight double. One skein was the perfect amount for this hat. It’ll be a hat that I wouldn’t hesitate to make again an again. And I really love the fit, it’s not to sloppy or slouchy! I topped it off with one of our faux fur pompoms which will be posted to the shop this week!
And did you know a really simple way to attach those pompoms to your hats? A customer recently shared that all you need to do is sew a small button into the inside of the hat crown. The pompoms have a little elastic button loop on them so you can feed it through the top and attach it to the button. It’s super easy to do and the pompom doesn’t flip flop around, but the best part is that you can remove the pompom or washing or blocking and then reattach when dry!
We can’t wait to see what you make, so be sure to post on Instagram, Ravelry or Facebook with the #niceandknit tag.
