Happy Labor Day to those of you in the U.S. (And I hope you’re not laboring today.) We have a fun Monday Update for you today. Just up, you’ll find:
Loopy Ewe Sweatshirts – Just in time for fall, we have sweatshirts available again! This time we brought in red zip-up hoodies for you to wrap up in. Available in sizes Small through 3x. Get them while they last!
Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Silk Lace – An incredible laceweight yarn that is 51% Silk, 29% Merino Wool and 20% Seacell. With 868 yards in the skein, you have a lot to work with! Need some pattern ideas? Try: Begonia Swirl, Snow Angel, Tiong Bahru, Echo Flower Shawl, or A Hap for Harriet. Shown below in Sapphire and Neptune.
String Theory Colorworks Continuum – Caitlin has sent us more of her beautiful self-striping yarn in a variety of colors. This fingering weight yarn is 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere and 10% Nylon. Perfect for socks, gloves, mittens, cowls and hats. We have just one more shipment coming from Caitlin, and then she’s taking some time away from large orders. Pattern ideas: Sockhead Hat, Jaywalkers, Fruit Stripe Gum Socks, Elphaba, or Vanilla Latte Socks. Shown below in Kinetic Energy and Trifolium.
Dream in Color Jilly – This is a new yarn base for us. Jilly is 100% Superwash Merino in a fingering weight. This single ply yarn comes 440 yards to the skein, and if you purchased one of our April Celebrations colors (or kits), you have already experienced the beauty of Jilly. We have lots of color choices for you. You’ll love this yarn for shawls, scarves, cowls and sweaters. Pattern ideas: Elianette, Rivington Cowl, Pebble Beach Shawlette, Boxy, Song of the Sea, or Pogona. Shown below in Galaxy and Daylilly.
Dream in Color September Dream Club – The new Dream Club has started! Many of you signed up for the whole six months with us. If that’s the case, then we’ve already put the reserved skein in your cart. For those of you who wanted to preview and buy month to month, we have plenty of skeins left for you as well. This month’s Dream Club features a mega-sized skein of Smooshy, with 620 yards in the skein. Your purchase includes a copy of the Flight of the Maple Seed shawl/scarf that was written especially for this large skein. We’ll email you the copy of the pattern within 48 hours of your order shipping. Need other pattern ideas for a skein or two of this size? Try: Ishbel, Eyeblink, Whispers, Analucia Shawl, or Estuary.
We have a winner from Contest #7! Meaghan J. in CO wins a skein of Hand Maiden Casbah plus a skein of Skein’s Merino Silk. We’ll get this shipped out tomorrow, Meaghan! Today is our last contest celebrating our Eighth Anniversary. However, if you pop back by the blog on Wednesday, you’ll see one more special contest where you could win 3 project’s worth of yarn. Don’t miss that!
For today’s contest, the question of the day is: What was your favorite thing about high school? (We already did “Who Was Your Favorite Teacher“, which was a lot of fun to read through. But if you didn’t get in on that blog post back in 2010, feel free to leave your favorite teacher in the comments, too.) We’ll draw a name and announce the winner in Wednesday’s blog post.
Have fun shopping through the new things, and we’ll get your orders packed up with lots of Loopy Love and shipped off asap!
