Sola Coupon for Shalimar Release
I've somehow managed not to post my last couple of designs, so I'm going to start now. The most recent is Sola, a quick tam worked up in less than a skein of Shalimar Yarns Breathless DK in the Curry colorway. Breathless is a cashmere merino blend that is currently available in DK and fingering weights (keep an eye out for a fingering weight design in late spring or summer). Shalimar Yarns will be having an etsy update for BDK on April 10 at noon eastern time. (For more info, see their blog or ravelry group.) With any purchase of BDK you will receive a coupon for $2 off Sola, which you can use to buy the pattern from my ravelry store. At $3.50 it's a great value and an excellent way to use up the remainder of a sweater quantity of yarn or to try a skein of something new.
You can find additional details and photos of Sola on ravelry. The Shalimar shop update will likely sell out within a day, so if you are interested I suggest popping in at noon EST on the 10th for the best selection. There will be a wide variety of colors available, including five new colors that are exclusive to the etsy shop. Here are a few of the etsy shop exclusive colorways:
Shalimar Breathless DK in Billie's Blues, Mystery Date, and Radio Flyer
