Our New Project Planner, Fall Giftables, & CONTEST 5!

Project-Planner-The-Loopy-Ewe1We have a new feature on the website for you! This has been in the works for quite some time, and it’s a lot of fun to work with, as well as being really handy for planning future projects. With our new Project Planner you can: 

– see how different yarn or fabric colors work together
– see how prices, weights, gauges compare
– get a cost for the project – keep track of multiple projects
– share your planner page link with a friend to get an opinion (or to inspire them to knit along with you!)
Project-Planner-The-Loopy-Ewe3– leave notes for yourself (Which pattern? Which color for which section? Any other thoughts?)
– indicate how many skeins are needed of each color
– easily transfer it over to your shopping cart to purchase
– or save it for later while you think it over or start a new planning page for a different project

You’ll always find your saved Project Plans on your Loopy account page, once you’ve logged in.

Project-Planner-The-Loopy-Ewe5On each individual product page on our website, you’ll see the “Add to Wishlist” link (which we’ve always had) and now a new “Add to Project Planner” link below that. I have been busy planning some of my Christmas gift knitting projects, as well as a couple of other knitting projects and some quilts that I want to do. (I may be having too much fun with this feature.) You can click on the photo to enlarge it and see what I’m working on. I also realized that having multiple projects planned lets me see if I have too much of the same color going on. (I’m talking about you, Teal!) Read about our new Project Planner here, and then try it out!

We are ready for Fall Giftables signups, and the first kit is shipping the third week in September! Remember – by taking a spot, you’re committing to purchasing all three kits in the Club. To secure your spot, we’re having you pre-pay for the first month. (Again, this will ship out to you around the third week in September.) We’ll invoice you in mid October and mid November for the other two kits. You also have the option of paying for all three months (September, October, November) right off the bat, if you’d prefer. (If you signed up for your last Giftables Club and dropped out midway through, you will need to prepay for all three months to reserve a spot this time.) We have pretty yarn, fun accessories, and beautiful patterns all lined up for you this fall, and look forward to shipping them out to you!

  1. I would say waking up and putting my feet on the ground and then spending the day with my sister who has stage 4 cancer who was having a good day.

  2. That I can stay home from work and relax and knit. This is a rare treat for me. Got my front yard cut early to get in from the 90+ heat. Now am working on a “unique, one of a kind” baby blanket to give to charity.

  3. For me I would say my favorite thing about my day so far is that the gauge swatch that I just knitted for Zuzu’s Petals turned out perfect! I always get happy when things work together 🙂

  4. My favorite thing about today has been watching my kiddos giggle with each other. They are 1 and 4 and sometimes it’s all screaming, but today so far it’s been a lot of giggles.

    1. Sorry Sheri and staff- wasn’t paying attention to the date when I posted! Hope you all have a lovely day.

      1. You can always post on back blog posts! And I’m glad you’re getting giggles today. That’s something to be thankful for!

  5. My favorite thing about today is my husband is leaving town for two weeks. When he travels I get my whole week’s worth of work done in in just a few hours. Then, I go out to my truck, grab the movies I brought and my knit bag and knit 8 hours a day for the next 14 days. Now, if that’s not something to celebrate I don’t know what is! LOL
