The Thursday Update is ready for you! Today we added in:
Biscotte & Cie Felix – this fingering weight self-striping yarn is so fun to knit up! I’ve had fun using it for socks (see them here and here) and a Sockhead hat (here), but you can also use it for fingerless mitts, mittens, gloves, cowls, and scarves. Louise does several exclusive colors for us, including Loopy Elves, Loopy’s Mountain Hike, Loopy’s Summer Garden, Loopy Kisses, Loopy’s Herman, and Loopy’s Knit Night. (Those last three colors shown below.) Need ideas? Try Turkish Bed Socks, A Time to Reap, Captain Hastings, or Blurred Lines Socks.
Biscotte & Cie Gobelin – the worsted weight version of the self-striping yarn. Of course this weight knits up even faster, and is fun for hats, scarves and mittens for adults or kids. I made this quick hat out of it last year. Or try Waiting for Winter, Be Loving, Easy Peasy Socks, or Elefante. Shown below in A Moi le Coco, Loopy’s Summer Garden, and Purple Rain.
The Loopy Ewe Loopy Cakes – we’ve re-stocked the Steampunk, Sizzle and Baby sets. Our Loopy Cake sets are all a bit labor intensive (all that winding), but just know that we’re working on them every week. If there’s a particular set that you’re wanting and it’s out of stock, email us and we’ll be sure to save you one, the next time that set gets done. Here’s a fun hat that I knit out of our Colors of Loopy set. It’s done in the Swirl Hat pattern and I just swapped out the colors as I worked my way up the hat. Next on my list is to make matching fingerless mitts. And don’t forget the Loopy Cakes Cowl, which is a quick linen stitch knit.
Moda Fabric’s Daydreams line – these colors remind me of spring and summer – pinks, yellows, teals and oranges. They would make some cute bags, if you’re doing the Loopy’s Fabric Challenge for Spring! A sampling shown below.
Moda Fabric’s Bee My Honey line – flowers, bees, honeycombs and water cans – perfect for your favorite gardener! A sampling shown below.
Have fun shopping through all of these bright colors, and we’ll get a Box of
Color Fun shipped right out to you, to brighten your day!
