Oh, we have so many fun things just up for you today! For today’s Monday Update, you’ll find:
Blue Moon Fiber Arts – Socks that Rock Lightweight. This 100% Superwash Merino fingering weight yarn has a tight, bouncy twist, making it fun to knit up and comfortable to wear. We have new Christmas colorways, in addition to other beauties. 38 different colors for you. (Not as many quantities of each as we had wanted, but they sent what they could, so get them while they last!) Shown below in Gnome on the Range and Gnome de Plume.
The Loopy Ewe September Celebrations colorway – Big Box of Crayons. We’re celebrating the beginning of the school year with this color. When you were growing up, didn’t you always want the BIG box of crayons, when you were buying school supplies? (For me, it was the 64 count box with the sharpener in the back.) We asked Dream in Color to design a colorway that combined the best crayon colors, and they rose to the challenge. I used a skein to knit up this Emita pattern, which combines garter stitch and ribbing into a simple infinity cowl pattern. (And the Loopy Elves will hate me for saying this, because they are the ones who have to match skeins when you buy multiples, but I also think this would be gorgeous in the Boxy pattern.)
Cascade – Heritage Silk Paints. A fingering weight yarn that is 85% Superwash Merino and 15% Silk. Great for socks (the silk gives a little extra strength to the sock), but also beautiful done up in shawls, as the silk adds a little bit of sheen. Shown below in Desert Evening and Root Veggies.
Manos del Uruguay – Serena. We love this yarn base. A sport weight yarn done on a 60% Baby Alpaca/40% Pima Cotton base. Soft. Warm. Luscious. Use it for shawls, cowls, hats, gloves, mittens and scarves. Shown below in Alpine and Deep Sea.
George Sichterman Woodwork – yarn caddies re-stocked in Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Oak and Red Cedar. These keep your yarn cakes neat and tangle free as you knit.
George Sichterman Woodwork – new yarn swifts! We were so happy when George brought us his latest works of beautiful art – yarn swifts. We have them in Walnut, Cherry and Oak. These ship on their own in special boxes and come with easy directions for putting it together. (Due to the size and weight, we’re only able to ship these within the U.S.) So pretty that you’ll want to leave them out all the time. Shown below in Cherry.
The Loopy Ewe – Loopy Cakes re-stocked in Colors of the Year and Colors of Loopy. (Since I get to pick the colors we use on the walls and in our logos, the Colors of Loopy cake set ends up being all of my favorite colors! You can see the spiral hat that I knit up using this set, here.)
The Loopy Ewe – Purple shopping bags added in. You might have caught sight of these in the photos on our Fall Fling Retreat blog post! These bags are great for big projects, shopping at the Farmer’s Market, or taking towels and doo-dads to the beach.
The Loopy Ewe – Our favorite blue coffee mugs! We love the tall design, and we know you do, too. Winter is coming soon. You’ll need your favorite hot beverage by your side as you knit ….
The Loopy Ewe – Notecards. So many of you have asked about the photos that I share from my husband’s photography business, that we have added in two different sets of the prints as notecards. The first set features our beautiful fall Aspens here in Colorado in four different shots. The second set features the fun alpaca prints that we have hanging in the shop by our checkout counter. (People ask about those prints all the time!) We hope you enjoy getting a little piece of Fall Colorado (or some fun alpacas with personality)!
Blue Sky Alpacas Patterns – new ones added in.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and we’ll get your orders packed up and shipped right out!
