What to stash this week: Sand knits

Last year, Amélie of Quebec-based Emilia & Philomene collaborated with designer Marion Mursic of Marion Em Knits on a yarn and design inspired by colorful beach shacks that line the sand in the North of France, where Marion resides. The gently speckled colorway, Tricots de Sable, which translates to sand knits, was dyed on a lovely blend of wool and linen that is ideal for working with in the heat of summer. Marion held the yarn double for her Sable Hat pattern, with twisted ribbing that curves gently on the wide brim.

The yarn was an absolute joy to work with and would also look beautiful in lightweight tops. It comes in generous 509-yard skeins, which are available to preorder through April 28 on Indie Untangled, shipping in mid-June, just in time for adding your own sandy memories.
