Just in at The Tree!  PRISM TRUNK SHOW! 
OUR BIGGEST EVER
!

NOW thru Saturday, February 7th!



First up - something NEW
!

Introducing - Ikat Dyeing Technique
A new style of dyeing pioneered by Prism's Laura Bryant,
Ikat dyeing contrasts two subtly related colors with cream.



Laura's precision dyeing allows unique patterns to be knitted by simply employing a Magic Number
(the number of stitches required to use up exactly one round of colors), attention to color stacking, and color repositioning.

This technique is easy to do and Laura has a class on craftsy.com if you have any trouble!

Rooted in the traditions of weaving, Ikat dyeing for knitting takes advantage of the subtle shifts of color.  Just as Ikat-dyed warps shift as threads are wound onto the beam, we knitters have slight changes in tension that cause the colors to shift.



Check out this cool pullover from the Trunk Show - in ikat!


A cowl is a great introduction to this technique!
 


And cowls are hot this season!
Our PRISM TRUNK SHOW has a myriad of cowls to choose from!


Love the faux fur!  Prism's NEW Plumette makes such a cool cowl - in 2 sizes!


Plume is the longer length,  faux fur, big sister to Plumette!



This cowl uses Prism Stuff and Plume!



This gorgeous cowl uses 2 strands of lace wool held together!




Next up - Delicato
This lovely Tencel® lace yarn is a terrific substitute for more costly silk.
Lustrous, smooth and silky, the hand is superior with beautiful stitch definition and blocking retention.

This easy to knit ponchette with sleeves is one of my favorite pieces in the trunk show!
Beautiful drape and works with any outfit!




This pretty summer top is a fun chevron pattern!




The next 2 jackets, knit in Delicato...


...come as a kit in various colorways!





Next up is Euroflax hand-dyed linen!
Linen is machine washable, has amazing drape and gets softer the more you wash and wear it!


Love this cardigan and this fun skirt knit in Euroflax in yet another easy chevron stitch!
 


Laura Bryant's ever popular Monet Jacket kit now comes in several different fiber options and yarn weights!
Love this one in Euroflax!




This worsted weight version is lovely in Symphony!




Symphony is one of our favorite worsted weight yarns! 
How cute is this pullover in
Symphony!





C'mon in, we'll show you how ikat knitting works -
and you can try on these great sample garments!

Also just in - NEW soap from Thrive Handcrafts!



Thrive Handcrafts
is rooted in love and gratitude. They are a family business – mom, dad, and two kids.

In a quest to find the best possible soap to use on their sweet babies, they created their own recipe using cold-pressed vegetable oils, steam distilled essential oils, and other natural and botanical additives – most of them straight from their pantry! As their craft evolved into a business they added skin care products and natural deodorant to their collection of products.


Every item is infused with energy and possibility. To them, soap is more than the sum of its parts – it is beautiful, functional, healthy, and even potentially life-saving. They choose the best natural ingredients to create soap that lasts a long time, smells amazing, and makes a beautiful impression.

Thrive Handcrafts products will never contain animal fats, mineral oil, petroleum products, parabens, sulfates, artificial fragrances or colorants, propylene glycol, or palm oil. Most are vegan and all are vegetarian – the only animal products are milk, silk, beeswax, and honey. They use only essential oils for fragrance and flavor, and natural ingredients such as herbs, coffee, tea, oatmeal, and clay for color.


We love Shibui yarns!

Shibui Pebble!
A trio of favorite fibers—cashmere, fine merino, and recycled silk—
unite to create a tweedy mélange in new lace-weight Pebble

Separate plies of each fiber retain their distinctive characteristics, but blend into a beautifully cohesive yarn flecked with complex tonal colors. Perfect for colorwork, lace, and an innumerable variety of garments, Pebble is light, airy, and irresistibly soft. This sumptuous tweed is a welcome addition to Shibui's Mix yarns, adding a plush feel and rich depth of color to any fabric.

Try Pebble doubled or even tripled to match any gauge and imbue any project with its luscious tactile appeal.

48% recycled silk, 36% fine merino, 16% cashmere, 224 yds / 205 m, light fingering weight/ 25 g skein



Another Shibui fav -

Silk Cloud
Glossy silk and wispy kid mohair unite in this luminous lace weight yarn.

 
Silk Cloud can be knit alone for gossamer-light lace projects,
or held alongside any Shibui yarn to add a soft halo and subtle glow.
60% kid mohair, 40% silk, 330 yds / 300 m, lace weight / 25 g skein


Check out our NEW Knitting Tree pattern design
using 2 of our favorite Shibui yarns!

Our two-color boxy pullover "Alena" uses Pebble and Silk Cloud  held together!
It's easy to knit and
 looks great on every body type!!



This Multigrain Scarf pattern uses Pebble and Silk Cloud, along with Cima!
3 different fibers all in the same colorway!

Patti modified the Multigrain Scarf pattern into a cowl!  Using the same 3 yarns.
You have to come and see it!  Soooo pretty!




Gail modified this Gradient Cowl pattern into just 4 skeins of Silk Cloud!
Lovely!!


Love this Pullover knit with 2 colors of Pebble!



This cowl and matching gloves is so cool!
