Summer is a great time for smaller knits – things you can put in a project bag and take with you on a plane ride or a road trip. I like to grab a pattern and yarn that I’ve been looking forward to making and, once completed, put these items into a “gifts for anyone” bag. That way, when I need a birthday gift or have one more person for gifting at the holidays, I have some things ready.
Diadem is the perfect yarn for smaller items that will make you, or the recipient of your gifts, gasp with delight. A delightful blend of alpaca and silk, Diadem is soft beyond belief, and as shiny and luxurious as the gemstones that the colorways suggest. I would love to make the Palazzo Lace Scarf, above, and the Ciel Sorbet Poncho, below. I think anyone I know would be thrilled to receive them.
For more basic knits that I could whip through on public transportation, the Twisted Rib Hat and Mitt Set is a great set for so many seasons! There are so many great patterns featuring Diadem Yarn on our site. Browse through, and see which one suits you!
For a few more weeks, all Diadem is 20% off in our Monthly Yarn Sale. Stock up on both DK and fingering weight while it’s at a savings, and you’ll be happy you did, when it’s time to give the gift of handmade to someone you love!
