It’s April, which means it’s Knit Purl’s birthday month! You might be wondering how many years we are turning? Well, don’t worry, we aren’t too shy to share that it’s our 11th birthday.
To celebrate, Blissful Knits has created an exclusive, limited edition colorway of their Ambrosia MCN yarn, named Xi. Artistically hand dyed, Xi is a neutral base with beautiful citrus pops of lime and lemon and calming rain-cloud blue and gray.
If you've never been introduced to Ambrosia MCN, you're in for a treat. A special technique is used to process the superwash merino, cashmere, and nylon fibers, which gives this luxury yarn a smooth, silky feel. The merino and cashmere add a softness that you will want to forever work in your hands while the nylon adds strength to all your projects.
As another little treat, we have paired Xi with Woven by Casapinka, as a limited edition kit that would make a special gift for yourself or someone special. Last but not least, for all purchases made that are over $35, you will receive free shipping Friday, April 15- Sunday, 17th!
Here are a few patterns that will catch a few eyes when matched with Xi:
Westknits: Leave it to Stephen West to make perfect patterns to show-off special yarn. Arroway Shawl and Clockwork Shawl will require only one skein of Xi and one other color to use either as a main color or contrast color.
Marley Shawl: Brioche beauty. This pretty reversible brioche shawl will make Xi pop. This will also be a great project for any brioche newbies!
I hope you enjoy all the little treats while we celebrate our XI birthday!
