Lorna’s Laces, Desert Vista Dyeworks, Moda, and More

Shepherd's Wool Berries The Loopy EweHappy Monday! Did you all have a good weekend? And are you off to a good start on the week? (If so, you need a Box of Fun this week to celebrate!) … (If not, you need a Box of Fun this week to console!) Just up, we added:

Stonehedge Fiber Mill – Shepherd’s Wool Worsted. This continues to be one of our most popular sweater yarns, as the yarn is soft and cozy and knits up beautifully. Also nice for hats, scarves and mittens, of course. (Shown here in Berries.)

Lorna’s Laces – Solemate. Fingering weight yarn that contains the special material called Outlast (in addition to wool), which helps regulate temperature. That makes this idea for hats, mittens, gloves and socks.

Ashburn The Loopy EweLorna’s Laces – Shepherd Sock. Fingering weight yarn in a wool/nylon blend, which is great for socks. You’ll also find this works well with one-skein shawls and scarves. (Shown here in Ashburn.)

Desert Vista Dyeworks – Viso Self-Striping. Have fun knitting up some special socks or gloves in these fun fall colors!

Offhand Designs Bags – More beautiful prints in the Scottie and Arya bag designs. My favorite thing about these bags is that the top is hinged and stays open so you can knit right out of it.

Soak Wash, Soak Hand Creme, and Soak Heel Creme – Many scents re-stocked. The wash is great for hand-washing all of your knits. The cremes are really awesome for dry hands and feet, which is especially important in the winter time!

Scojo Seafoam The Loopy EweScojo – regular reading glasses and reading sunglasses. We’ve re-stocked all sizes, added in a new color (Seafoam, shown here, which replaces the discontinued Jade). We’ve also added in their sunglasses line. Have you ever been trying to knit in the car with your reading glasses, and wished that you could block out the sun? Reading sunglasses are a great solution.

Suzanne’s Art House – new quilting patterns. We love these fun patterns! We made up her Winter Stars pattern as a shop sample, and it’s so beautiful. She has a lot of fun seasonal table runner/topper patterns, as well as some cute everyday minis. And check out the new Baby Dino and Owl quilts, which are brand new from market last week.

Moda Midwinter Reds The Loopy EweModa Fabrics – Midwinter Woven Reds. Tickings, checks, ginghams, and plaids in reds, creams and tans. Great for quilts, towels, placemats, and curtains. Such pretty colors together! I don’t have a lot of curtains in my house, but this line has me re-thinking that. If I could only find a quick way to get rid of the terra cotta tile (orange-ish) in my kitchen. It doesn’t go with my favorite reds at all. (Is that a good reason to tear up a perfectly good floor?)

  1. I just wanted to send a note and thank you for the blog. I live in a rural area. Being able to read the blog helps keep me inspired with new ideas and encouragement to keep knitting and sewing. Most of all because the more I knit and sew, the more I can order. The yarns you offer have always been beautiful, and the new fabrics are keeping up or even exceeding what I have come to expect. Keep it up. You’ve brightened a rainy cloudy day.

  2. Thanks for the sweet comment, Janet! I appreciate you being a regular blog reader. I’m like you – wishing I had more time and money for knitting and sewing. Glad we have good options for you when you need something!

  3. Love that new Moda fabric! Wish I were a sewer (let’s just say my past projects left a great deal to be desired!).

  4. Sherri,

    Go ahead with the red curtains with your terra cotta tile. It will look great. If you do not believe me, just go outside. The trees will show you all colors from light orange, terra cotta, red and deep burgundy all blending together in a beautiful tapestry.
