Happy Monday to you! I hope you had a good weekend. I did not finish my Camp Loopy Project Two, but I AM at the ruffle part. 14 more rows to go. (The rows are 450+ stitches in length. I’m trying to ignore that part.) I hope you all got some Camp knitting done over the weekend, too. In my mind, good knitting progress means I can buy more yarn for future projects. (Right?) We do have fun things just up on the website. Pop over and see!
Socktopus – Sokkusu O. Ling has dyed up some more beauties for us, and shipped them over the pond! Sokkusu is a 100% Superwash Merino base with 433 yards in the skein. The tight twist makes your stitches really pop when you knit it up. You’ll love this for socks, shawls, scarves, cowls and hats. Shown below in Spock and Midsomer.
Dream in Color – New Classy. Dream in Color has changed their worsted weight Classy base, and this new one is luscious. So soft and I can’t wait to knit it up into something! Still 100% Superwash Merino with 250 yards to the skein. We have a few of the older base skeins left, but once those sell out, Classy will all come in this new, softer base. Shown below in Emerald Darkness and Mountain Wildflowers, which is our new exclusive color!
Shibui Linen – 100% linen in a fingering weight, this yarn comes 246 yards to the skein and is fun to use for summer sweaters, tanks, shawls and scarves. Shown below in Brick and Graphite.
Shibui Baby Alpaca DK – a wonderful DK weight yarn in 100% baby alpaca. This yarn comes 255 yards to the skein and is so soft and warm to work with. Are you one of those people who can never get warm in the winter time? (Or do you knit for one of those types of people?) Make them a sweater, shawl, hat, scarf, cowl or gloves out of this. They will love it. Shown below in Brass and Grounds.
Shibui Silk Cloud – this aptly named yarn is 60% Kid Mohair and 40% Silk in a laceweight with 330 yards to the ball. It’s beautiful when knit on it’s own (light as a feather) or you can hold it double with another yarn/weight to add softness to a pattern. I held it together with Baby Alpaca to knit my Cabled Rib Wrap. I loved working on that project! Shown below in Lumen and Graphite.
Blue Q Bags – we’ve re-stocked the previous bags (more Knit City Shoppers!) and added some new designs as well. These bags have a great price point and are so fun and colorful for use as a project bag, but also fun to use as gift bags and shopping bags. We love this whole line. Shown below in the Small Pouch size, which are perfect for your knitting notions.
Beadle Needles – re-stocked. These handy hooks hold a bunch of beads that can then be added directly to your project. Once you use them, you’ll wonder how you got along without them!
Have fun shopping through the new things, and we’ll get your orders packed up with Loopy love and shipped right out!
Sheri and The Loopy Ewe Crew
Did you catch the Fabric Update last Thursday? We added in Riley Blake’s Trail Mix collection, Riley Blake’s Oh Boy collection, re-stocked the Riley Blake Shades and Solids, and added in more Organizer and Bag patterns.
That is slightly less than 5 row a day…and the bind-off! Do the Dori!
Ok, well I did 4.5 rows last night (Monday), so I’m trying!
Love the colors… Wow the skeins look so gorgeous and vibrant!!
Aren’t they fun?
I’m facing those same long rows, but with over twenty to go for Project Two . . . however, the Whippoorwill pattern is fun (especially these later rows), and I’m loving my Fable Fibers yarn, so those two elements will make up for the late nights I’m anticipating for the next couple days. 🙂
I’m already wanting to make another Whippoorwill shawl, and the Socktopus looks like it would be perfect! (Too many projects, too little time . . .)
The Whippoorwill is a fun pattern. I need to make another one of those sometime. Good luck with your late nights on Project Two. I’ll be right in there knitting along with you!
I love getting to see the new goodies.
