Our Eighth Anniversary Kit! Happy Anniversary to Loopy! We love celebrating with a special kit each August. This year’s kit features a skein of Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere in an exclusive color called “Let It Go”. For Frozen fans, you’ll recognize that name! When I finally got around to watching that Disney movie, I loved one of the robes that Elsa the Snow Queen wore and couldn’t stop thinking about what a beautiful yarn color that would make. (Does anyone else think of yarn colors when watching movies?) Since we’re in snow-country here in Colorado, a Frozen-themed colorway seemed perfect. To round out the kit we added in a cute little tool kit with knitting tools and a specially designed shawl pattern by our favorite anniversary designer, Debbie O’Neill, who has done patterns for all 8 of our anniversary kits.
Fable Fibers – Novel. I know you all love this yarn, and we do, too. Lelah’s colors are beautiful, and this Novel base comes in large skeins with 600 yards each, making it great for larger shawls and larger socks (or sweaters with just 2-3 skeins needed.) This fingering weight base is 80% Merino Wool, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon and we have it in lots of pretty colors. Here are a few pattern suggestions: Ocean Breeze, Algiers, Imagine When, Hitofude Cardigan, Descent Into Madness, Low Tide Cardigan, or Analucia Shawl. Shown below in Manasquan and Rose Britannia. We have it available for you in 28 colors.
Baah! Yarn – LaJolla. We’re glad to have this line back in stock in the fingering weight LaJolla base. This is 100% Superwash Merino and comes 400 yards to the skein. One thing I especially love about this line is the way you can mix and match the solids and the multicolors so that you can do patterns like Sea Glass, or even a regular pretty shawl (like LaLa’s Simple Shawl or Thin Ice) where you can start with a solid, move into a multi, and then finish with a different solid. You can see the one I did like that here. Shown below in Pink Tourmaline and Spring Stripes. We have it available for you in 43 colors.
JulieSpins – Silky 435. It’s always a happy day when boxes arrive from Julie! And, apart from Wollmeise, I think I have more JulieSpins stashed than any other line. I love her colors and since she doesn’t repeat them (she likes to just play with the dyes), you need to get them while you can. At least that’s what I tell myself. This Silky base is 50% Silk and 50% Superwash Merino. Gorgeous for scarves, shawls and cowls. If you’re starting to think about holiday gifts, this is one of the yarns you should be using! Pattern ideas: Magrathea, 435 Sideways Wrap, Noel, Teasdale, and Creedence. Shown below in Purrfect Siamese and Forest Floor. We have it available for you in 16 colors.
Soak – re-stocked in all of the current scents and sizes for the Wash, as well as a re-stock of the Heel and Handmaid Creme.
Blue Q Bags – new designs (cats, subways and mood swings!) and re-stocks.
Have fun shopping through the new things and we’ll get your orders packed up and shipped right off!
