For the next two weeks, Argyle Yarn Shop will be hosting a trunk show on loan to us from Portland, Maine-based yarn maker Quince & Co. The featured yarn is Sparrow, Quince's fingering weight, 100% organically grown linen yarn.
A trunk show is when a yarn maker lets us borrow some finished knitted samples to display, so guests can see what the yarns look and feel like in person, and get inspiration from the beautiful designs.
Let's see what lovely tops have come out of the trunk this time:
Worked flat in pieces from the bottom up and seamed, the applied crochet chain technique used for the contrasting color makes simple work of the widely spaced vertical stripes.
Featuring a sweet lace back detail just below the neckline, Pippa sports an easy A-line shape and is knitted in the round from the bottom up, in Quince's Sparrow linen.
So come on over and check out Sparrow, including the three newest colors pictured at right: Eclipse, Lunar, and Sky.
You can learn more about Sparrow by visiting our blog right here. And if you love the idea of summery linen, but are hoping for a thicker gauge, we've also got Quince's Kestrel.
