Show and tell: Shibui.

Time for another round of show-and-tell! I’m always collecting photos of the beautiful finished pieces knitters and crocheters bring in to share with us, garments that started their lives as HYS yarns. Going over recent photos, I spotted project after project made with Shibui yarns, proving once again that they’re some of the best-loved yarns in our shop. Let’s have a look at what folks are making with them!

Cindy knit this striking shawl with Shibui Lunar, a lace weight blend of merino and silk. The pattern is Melanie Berg’s “The Miller’s Daughter,” a shawl in three colors, alternating lace sections with garter stitch stripes.

Astrid has been working with Lunar, too, and used it to make Inbar Rofman’s intricate “Agate Lace Shawl.”

Back in May, “Torrent” was our Shibui Sample of the Month, and inspired lots of knitters to cast on for shawls of their own with Rain, Shibui’s DK weight cotton.

Above is Sidney’s “Torrent,” looking crisp and seasonless in the Ash colorway, and below is Mary’s, knit with Shibui’s limited edition shade for this year, Riviera.

Maxine was taken with the Riviera colorway, too, and selected Fern and Vine in that summery shade to knit her “Amos” tee.

Thanks to everyone who shares their projects with us, whether at the outset, after all the ends are woven in, or somewhere along the way. We can’t wait to see what you make next!
